Description:

Here is Artie Shaw's delightfully quirky take on Vilia, from The Merry Widow by Franz Lehar. Being a Shaw chart it naturally features Clarinet, with some smooth ensemble writing and a flowing sax soli too. The brass ranges are moderate, with no hidden surprises and Shaw's Clarinet solo is written out in full, though your player can improvise from the chords if preferred. The reeds are scored CAATT, with the 4 saxes having Clarinet doubles. However, we have printed the sax parts double sided, with a "no Clarinet double" option on the reverse, in case your section don't all double.
