Diabelli Project 145 - Duet for Clarinet and Bass Clarinet

The Diabelli Project is about offering my weekly flash-composition sketches freely to all. Like Antonio Diabelli's theme, these sketches aren't great music. But perhaps (as in Diabelli's case) there's a Beethoven out there who can do great things with them.

This isn't the first duet I've sketched in this series. I was surprised, though, to discover it's the first one for clarinet and bass clarinet. One good thing about this -- I didn't have to worry about transposing since they both are B-flat clarinets. I started with the bass clarinet part and then filled in the clarinet line, which acts as both accompaniment and counterpoint.

As always, you can use any or all of the posted Diabelli Project sketches as you wish for free. Just be sure to share the results. I'm always curious to see what direction someone else can take this material.
