If my schedule permits, I'll be playing clarinets for Cinderella in the spring (Eb, Bb, and bass clarinet is what I've been told). For anyone that has played that particular orchestration, what is the breakdown of how much of each clarinet is played?

While I'm excited to get to do some Eb work, the fact that I don't get to play it much has me worried about the parts. What is the range of the Eb part? Are there a lot of fast passages? I can't play very much higher than thumb C reliably, though I recently got a Fobes mouthpiece for it and I've noticed having that mouthpiece over my old one does help extend my range upward a little bit.

Eb clarinet is the only thing I'm worried about. I think Bb and bass will be just fine. I played "Into the Woods" last year and came out almost unscathed (Bb clarinet cracked due to kids running in and out of the school building while I'm blowing warm air into it; d'oh!).


Bb/A: Buffet R13
Eb/Bass: Bundy
