This stunning compilation for Clarinet and Piano features exciting pieces for intermediate to advanced-level players from Christopher Norton, the creator of Microjazz. Includes fifteen entertaining and inventive pieces based on well-known Chirstmas carols, American folk tunes and nursery rhymes, along with a spectacular playalong CD featuring backing tracks and performance by the composer.
This collection of tunes is so much fun to play at around the Grade 4-6 level. Norton has created some brilliant piano parts using rhythm and good chord changes to enhance the clarinet part. The end result is some great arrangements of nursery and Christmas tunes the player will not tire of playing. As the title suggests the pieces will stand up as great concert material. If ever there is another volume, I will be first in the queue to purchase it. Anonymous

All the pieces are original compositions,mainly based on well known traditional tunes.(Some are very close to the original with little variation so not quite as interesting to play)
There's nothing too earth shattering here but everything is pleasant enough to play through and I quite enjoyed two or three of the arrangements.
Grade 5 or 6 players should manage this without too much difficulty. Anonymous

Enjoyable pieces which my student will have fun learning. The only downside is that too many of the pieces are Christmas related so only really useful for one particular time of year!
Reasonable value for money bearing in mind the inclusion of a CD. Anonymous

A good mixture of pieces and the cd included is really helpful. Anonymous
