Summertime Clarinet Duet PDF

This duet was written whilst I was exiled  (self imposed- long story!) in  Northern Argentina. I wrote it , recorded it,  then improved it . I rinsed and repeated  this cycle many times over my 8 years isolation enjoying the process of trying to achieve perfection!

This arrangement of Summertime for 2 Clarinets references some phrases of some  - Stevie Wonder, Prince, Larry Adler and Gershwin himself - with great affection and gratitude.

The level is intermediate to advanced

 My other Clarinet duets were also written during this time and with this care.

Summertime duet

Well conceived! although I don't have a friend to play the duet, I enjoy playing both parts separately . Do you have a piano base for it ?

Summertime

Played it with a friend at a funeral. But while sombre it was very suitable. Many positive comments at the clever arrangement. Was most satisfying to be able to play a beautiful, well-loved tune in a new way that was still simple and accessible. Thankyou

A challenge worth the effort...

..for one of my favorite tunes. Lots of unique lines in the chart. A challenge to adequately do it justice, but I have lots of time. Eventually want to have a friend try the parts so we can play both together. Thanks.

I entered the notation into Finale so I could play it as a duet with myself. Fun!

Summertime

Nick's arrangement of the Gershwin classic, Summertime, is outstanding. Challenging to be sure....but rewarding to play as a clarinet duet. JazzDuetShop consistently delivers content for musicians of all ages and abilities. JDS makes LEARNING fun by making PLAYING fun!

Summertime

It would be great to have the 2 solo voices (1 & 2) for practice. Like mp3 download or else. Thanks a lot

Summertime

I thoroughly enjoyed learning and playing this piece with my wife. It starts of in a fairly straightforward manner, and then gets more complicated and difficult, with interesting harmonies. Learning it was a nice little 'lockdown' project.

Summertime Clarinet Duet

I have been playing the clarinet duet of Summertime with a student in my studio and she absolutely loves it! Nick answers email quickly and is always willing to help. I will definitely be recommending students in my studio to pick up copies of his music for our lessons.

Excellent jazz duets

I think Nick's duets are fun to play and very original. My pupils and I enjoy them very much. The performances (demos and YouTube) are a very high standard of playing.
