Scenes from "Porgy & Bess"
for woodwind octet: two oboes, two clarinets, two horns, two bassoons
by George Gershwin (1898-1937) - American composer
2nd Oboe doubles English horn, 1st Clarinet doubles Eb Clarinet, 2nd Clarinet doubles Bass Clarinet. Eb Clarinet part could be played on Bb Clarinet (just a little high! - no transposed part provided) but Bass Clarinet part is indeed in the lower octave and is, I am sure, essential to the arrangement. Edited and Arranged by Andrew Skirrow. A selection one of the best loved works of all time. Songs include Summertime and It Ain't Necessarily So.
