    Reed 1 has flute and sax leads with an opportunity to improvise a little in “Rum Tum Tugger”. Flute part is exposed and quite high. Reed 2 has some easy flute parts and is almost always playing flute with Reed 1.

  4. Comments from Richard Krishnan:

    “This show DOES have low A’s written for [baritone saxophone]. Also, neither of the flute books utilize a low B extension.

    “It may also be noted, though, that in reed 1, there are a couple tenor saxophone solos that could be improvised or played as written but the written part goes up to an altissimo A-sharp.”

  5. David Benedict says:

    The UK version (published by the Really Useful Group) 16-part version is as above.
    Their 10-part version is as above minus reed 3.
