Every year again in the Advent and Christmas season, pupils ask for Christmas carols which are easy to play, yet sound beautiful. In response to this demand, Rudolf Mauz now presents an edition for four clarinets following the anthology Drei Klarinetten zur Weihnacht (Schott ED 9998). The quartets are set in easy keys and times so that they can be well mastered by beginners as well. Parts 3 and 4 do not contain any overblowing, part 4 may alternatively be played by bass clarinet. Apart from the most popular Christmas carols from the German-speaking areas, the book also contains internationally well-known titles such as Jingle Bells, The first Noel, Deck the Halls, Joy to the World, We wish you a Merry Christmas and Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer.
