Bernstein – ‘Mambo’ from West Side Story
We will be using the “simplified” arrangement from the BBC ‘Ten Pieces’ project. Click on the link, then scroll down to “Arrangements” to find your chosen instrument and grade.

Beethoven 5 – last movement (IMSLP)
Click on the link and scroll down the IMSLP page to “Sheet Music”. Click on the “Parts (28)” tab. We will probably be using the “Leipzig: Breitkopf & Härtel” edition, which looks the cleanest. There is a list of all instruments under the “Flute 1,2 Piccolo” heading.
The last movement starts around bar 374 in the last section – marked “Allegro (minim = 84)”.
[For clarinets: there is a transposed part further down the IMSLP page.]


Much of the music that we play may be downloaded for free at sites such as IMSLP
Petrucci Music Library Members who have access to printers are invited to print out the appropriate parts in advance of rehearsals. Please also consider printing out extra copies for colleagues who may not have download/printing facilities. We can arrange for transposition to other keys/instruments if required.

NOTE: The IMSLP site now sometimes asks for membership subscription before downloading. You may enrol if you wish, but if you wait long enough you will see a “Click here to continue your download” button – it’s still free.

    Mmm, nice. Here’s hoping no one gets seasick during the Mendelssohn 😉

    I presume the concert will be padded out by sickeningly talented individuals and ensembles?
