 Reed 6 for Peter Pan
Author: Heise 
Date:   2016-01-29 00:44

A local theatre company is doing Peter Pan this summer (MTI books, 1954 Broadway version). Reed 6 is listed as "Bass Clarinet, Bassoon". Has anybody played this book or know definitively the division of parts between instruments? I am a bass clarinetist. A little bassoon doesn't scare me, but if the book is mostly bassoon, it would be better for me to bow-out now.

I am aware that there is an alternate "bassoon only" book, which I presume to be an alternate to Reed 6. I'm not sure whether this bodes in my favor or not.

Thanks for any info!

(For anybody who sees this twice, I apologize --- I earlier posted it on Sax On The Web.)

I just played this book with my school back in February. It is mainly bassoon, nothing too hard. I ended up bringing in a bari sax for some of the tougher spots (not that there were many). It's a fairly easy book, though not much bass clarinet. You can always transpose it for bass clarinet if you want (or read it on bari like I did). Hope this helped!
