Does the bass clarinet need to be a low C?
Yes bass clarinet goes down to low c and there is a lot of low c’s. That is in the rental book of spams lot. rod Tibbetts
I have the rental Reed I book in front of me, and there are 4 measures of sopranino recorder in the bows music (#30). (It looks like there used to be more, because earlier in the book there is a [to RECORDER] note, but the next instrument used is piccolo.)
Updated to reflect this. Thanks!
On the Broadway recording #19 “Brave Sir Robin” and the beginning of #20 “You Won’t Succeed on Broadway” are played prominently on sopranino recorder. The rental parts are marked ‘piccolo’ for these numbers, but it makes much more musical and stylistic sense to play them on recorder
Is it safe to assume that the solo clarinet parts (e.g. You Won’t Succeed on Broadway) are in the Reed I book?
Actually the lead clarinet parts for that particular song are in Reed 2 (1 is mostly on picc/flute for that), but the clarinet solos are kind of mixed between both books throughout the show.
