Composer: Sir Malcolm Arnold
Catalogue no: QT25 | ISMN 979-0-708-01500-0
One of Sir Malcolm's final works: a fascinating duo from one of Britain's finest composers.
1 Allegro energico
The six movements alternate melancholy moments with lighter moods. It's
good to have this work published and available.

Written for clarinet duet, this short work is among a number of
significant pieces for the instrument by Arnold including two
concertos, an unaccompanied work and his Sonatina. The
Divertimento was written in 1988 and consists of six brief movements, each of which contains a distinct character of its own.
There are moments of lyricism and rhythmic energy in equal
measure as well as some technically challenging sections, which
together make this a pleasing and playable work.
Queen's Temple Publications was founded in 1995 to make available interesting and useful wind chamber music, such as Sir Malcolm Arnold's important Wind Quintet Op. 2.
