Promenade & the Gnome (Carter)  Pk image
Orchestration
2 Flutes, 2 Oboes, 2 Clarinets in Bb, Clarinet 3 or Bassoon
2 Horns in F, 2 Trumpets in Bb, 2 Tenor Trombones, Bass Trombone and/or Tuba, Timpani (2 drums, 1 player), Percussion (Cymbals, Bass drum, Triangle, Glockenspiel or Chime bars, Side drum - 3 or 4 players)
Strings (Violin 1, Violin 2, Violin 3 or Viola, Cello, Bass), Piano (optional)

The parts are cued so that this arrangement can be played by strings only or strings and piano with any available wind and percussion. The 2nd oboe part is completely dispensable. The 3rd clarinet helps to cover the lack of bassoon where the bassoon part is within the range of the clarinet and does not go above the "break". The bass trombone/tuba part can be played by any form of bass brass instrument that uses the bass clef.
Duration: 4 minutes
