Excerpt Duet Based on Beethoven, Symphony No. 9

If you liked the previous duets I’ve posted for Brahms Symphony No. 3 and the Mendelssohn Nocturne,  here’s another one based on the famous 4th horn solo from the third movement of Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony.  The duet part is meant to help the student establish and maintain excellent rhythm and intonation throughout the passage, and is based primarily on the 1st bassoon, 1st clarinet, and 2nd clarinet parts. In studying the score to this passage it is quite interesting to see (and hear) the way the composer interweaves the 4th horn line, at times playing an accompanimental role, and at others a soloistic role.  Download the PDF here.
