Tico Tico adapted for mixed ensemble

Last week I got the request to adapt the woodwind quintet version of Tico Tico to a version with alto saxophone and bass clarinet instead of french horn and bassoon. Of course, it would be very simple to change these parts one to one, but the alto saxophone has a higher range and a different sound then the horn. So I chose to re-arrange the piece.

You can see and here the result here: Tico Tico for flute, oboe, clarinet, alto sax and bass clarinet:
