 Help finding a piece
Author: BPro

This is a longshot but I have exhausted my googling abilities trying to find this piece. I played a piece a while back, and have lost the music, and now have a complete mental block about what it was called or who the composer was. All I remember was that it was very fast with difficult fingering (1st movement), was modern, had several movements (I think 3-4) and had also been arranged for the alto sax. It wasn't a piece that was often played (I could only find 1 recital of it on youtube). I think before it was arranged for the clarinet it had been written for something else entirely (I think maybe piano for 4 hands??). I know this is vague but I really want to find it again because it's a good audition piece! Any help greatly appreciated.

Hmmm can you play just a few measures of it? Or write it even if the notes are not in the right key, the rhythms are right, but close?
