Seems like I just answered this question recently. You really should find a
bass clarinet player. The schools here in Las Vegas are full of them.
Anyway here are some things for four clarinets in rough order of increasing
difficulty (you can find full details on sneezy):

Clare Grundman, Caprice for Clarinets
Carl Bohm, Quartet in F (1st part is harder than the rest)
Clare Grundman, Bagatelle (I think this would be a great festival piece
although possibly a little short, 1st and 2nd parts are harder than 3rd &
David Bennett, Prelude and Scherzo
Elliot Carter, Canonic Suite
Yvonne Desportes, French Suite (this is too long, and probably more
difficult than what you are looking for, but a great piece for 4 clarinets)

Are there any good quartets, trios, ( or whatever # of parts) for clarinet
that don't have a bass clarinet part? Like all the parts are for Bb
Our clarinet section would like to play at a music festival but we can't
any good music. We'd like something semi-challanging, but we won't have
of group rehearsal time, so not too incredibly hard. thanx for your help!
