Does anyone know if there is only one "concert solo no 5" by Paul Harvey, which is then transposed to various (bass) instruments?

I have the Bassoon version, but I need to play the Bari sax version for my diploma.

If one is just a transposed version of the other, then it is no problem, I can just transpose it (pretty much on sight - the wonders of C bass to Eb treble clef)

But it would be rather awkward to discover that the Bari Sax, Bassoon and Bass Clarinet versions are actually all completely different compositions!

Thanks

By e-mailing June Emerson Music, I've established that the Bassoon piece is the same as the Bari sax piece.

I've put a (imperfect) recording in the sound clips section....

Guess it still needs to be transposed for bari. But sounds as if you're on top of it.:thumb:

You can transpose on sight directly from a C instrument in the bass clef to an Eb instrument in the treble clef - just add 3 sharps (take off 3 flats) from the key signature and read the notes as if they are really written on a treble clef stave! so the F line (bass clef) becomes the D line (treble clef) etc
