The Nutting Girl (1981)
high voice and piano, with optional clarinet (or viola, or violin, or treble recorder, or flute)
This sparkling arrangement of an East of England folk-song has been a popular concert item for many years. With its cheeky and slightly suggestive good humour, and its variable performance options, it makes a perfect recital encore!
Performable just with piano accompaniment, this publication also includes an additional optional instrumental part: this was originally for clarinet, and parts are also included for flute or treble recorder, violin, and viola.
