    Hi Gary,

    What a blast! A live quintet would have tremendous fun with this! Really nice arrangement, making good use of the ranges within each instrument. For some reason, I had trouble with a bit of distortion/clipping in the right channel from what I think is one of the Bb clarinets -- might be something to take a look at and resolve if it's there for you, also.

    A different take on this tune and definitely enjoyable (even though it did evoke "clown experience flashback"). Thanks for sharing this!

    Thanks for listening, Danny.
    I've been arranging a bunch of classic pieces for clarinet ensembles for a while. I changed this to a brass quintet and the bass line seems to be a better fit.

    Quit clowning around and get back to work...

    All kidding aside, this would be a wonderful quintet for a high school group. I definitely enjoyed the arrangement.

    I too heard a bit of 'clipping' but couldn't isolate the voice. Was this realized with Finale or Sibelius? Did you use a DAW? Which one? (BTW - I get bugged when I get these comments, so I appologize - I just wondered.) None of this detracts from the wonderful arrangement you have created.

    What fun, Gary! Very nicely done. Did you know that Hal Leonard published a few years ago a clarinet arrangement of Adagio for Strings? I saw it back when I used to work for them. I never had the chance to hear it. Be interesting to see what you could do with that. Take care.

    Thanks for listening, Serenity...
    I think there has been arrangements for Barber's Adagio for almost every combination-even a vocal (at least they didn't add words.)

    I've heard the vocal arrangement of Adagio. We have a vocal group here in Milwaukee called Bel Canto that did it in this beautiful cathedral. I never thought I'd hear something that sounded as good as strings, but they were incredible. Can't wait for Gary Garritan's vocal ensemble library to be ready!

    Some clipping in this, Gary, which I'm sure
    you know -- but a very good arrangement
    of this!

    This would really fly pretty, live.

    My best,
