We Are Amused! - Variations on God Save The Queen
Composer: Emma Dyer
Catalogue no: QT89 | ISMN 979-0-708-01589-5
Theme and 8 variations on God Save The King/Queen. A witty and lively piece with vivid contrasts in style. A great concert piece for enthusiastic clarinettists of all ages!
This set of eight variations for three clarinets begins in a deceptively
simple fashion, before becoming rather trickier! It would be a useful piece for students
between Grades 4 and 5 to work on; the early variations will tax the fingers,
the later ones testing the rhythmic mettle of ensembles working without a
conductor. However, the simplicity of approach does work, and it is well written for the instrument.
