I believe the Moncayo and Strauss are both for two clarinets. (I can't
remember if the Moncayo has a bass part). I do know that in that collection
of repertoire, you don't have and Sax parts.

I know nothing of the Marshall, and your main clarinet solos will be in the
Berlioz. Neither the Moncayo or Strauss have much exposed.
