 Orchestral Parts
Author: Ken Shaw

I just got the new Jeanne catalog, and saw that they offer the 1st clarinet parts for many major orchestral works. See: parts - Clarinet

Many of the solos in these parts are not in the excerpt books, particularly the famously difficult noodling at the beginning of Ravel's Daphnis & Chloe. If you're serious about orchestral auditions, it's worth getting one of everything, since the auditioners often call for difficult passages that are not in the excerpt books, and the excerpt books themselves are full of typographical errors.

For the works that are out of copyright, a bunch of people could get together, buy one set and photocopy it for everyone. (However, I think the Ravel is still under copyright, but everyone should buy the part and flog it to shreds.)

So. Everybody go home and practice.

Best regards.

Jeanné has slightly increased their variety of orchestral parts. I'm sure they can get other parts like Luyben can.
I've ordered most of my parts from Luyben, except for the parts that i picked up from Jeanné a couple years ago in the Lubbock ClarFest.

Unfortunately Luyben has never (since i've been dealing with them) offered a totally complete catalog of what they offer. But chances are if you want/ned it, they can get it.
