A lyrical arrangement of Burt Bacharach and Hal David's classic song, "Alfie," for string quartet, brass quartet and piano; i.e., a minimum of nine players. Scoring is flexible; see notes below.
---Optional parts are included for tuba and double bass
---Clarinets in B-flat may be used in place of either or both of the trumpets
---If available, a larger string section may be used; this may be helpful for balance against the brass/winds, and will increase the lushness of the sound
---This arrangement may be performed with or without conductor; the pianist or concertmaster may also take charge of ensemble coordination as needed
