 Re: West Side Story alternate orchestration

As it turned out, we ended up using the original. I was primarily Reed 1 but pulled the lead clarinet parts out of reed 2 when needed. We had 1 other read player who played the oboe and Eng Horn stuff out of reed 3 plus a few clarinet parts transposed to oboe. A very small pit (2 violins, 2 trumpets, horn, the 2 reed players, the MD on keys, bass and drums) but it came off fairly well. SO...I unfortunately can't answer your question on the alternate orchestration.

Selmer Mark VI tenor (1957), Selmer Mark VII alto (1975)
Buescher True Tone soprano (1924), Selmer CL210 Bb Clarinet, Gemeinhardt 3SHB Flute, Pearl PFP105 Piccolo
