    Reed 1 contains mostly sax/flute leads with little clarinet. Reed 2 is lead clarinet with several exposed “1920’s” style solo sections. Very little flute in Reed 4. Parts can be easily covered if your Reed 3 player does not play clarinet.

    The only time all 3 soprano saxophones play at the same time is in part 2 of Not For the Life of Me – Tag (Music #4). Otherwise, the soprano is divided between Reed 1 and 3 (reed 1 has more than reed 3), and is usually playing the lead when the other reed parts are playing saxes.

    Reed 3: Very little oboe but does have some solos (Overture, The Speed Test)
    Reed 4: Bass clarinet to low Eb, Baritone sax to low A
