1. Ballade (practice)
2. Croon Song
3. Intermezzo
4. Scherzo
4. Scherzo (practice)



William Hurlstone wrote his four Characteristic Pieces in 1899. The Ballade is the most substantial of the four, written in a rich Romantic style, while the Croon Song brings out the clarinet's melodic qualities. The Intermezzo and Scherzo are lighter in tone, and quite virtuosic in places. Here you can purchase and download the piano parts to play along to, recorded by a professional accompanist.
