THE ORCHESTRA In this new version of "Lilac Time", the orchestration has been carefully arranged to meet the requirements of modest or large orchestras. The minimum combination for an effective performance is: Flute; ist B flat Clarinet; 2nd B flat Clarinet; ist and 2nd Trumpets; ist Trombone; Percussion and Strings. Thereafter, instruments should be added in the following order: Oboe; ist Horn; Bassoon; 2nd Trombone; 2nd Horn and lastly, Harp. The work is liberally cued. In the absence of the Oboe, the ist Trumpet should play these cues MUTED. Oboe cues are doubled in Flute and Clarinet parts where practicable; Horn cues appear in Trumpet and Trombone parts; Bassoon cues are covered by 2nd Clarinet and Trombone. It is emphasized that a complete string section should be used, (ist and 2nd Violins, Viola, Cello and Bass), but Clarinet parts contain many essential cues to be played in absence of a Viola. The string parts are bowed where necessary, and the ist Violin has all important melody cues throughout. No special conductor's score is available, since this vocal score carries all instrumentation marks for the musical director's assistance. MUSICAL CONTENTS OVERTURE ACT 1 1.
