Wind Quintets 9 & 10 composed by Alec Wilder (1907-1980). Edited by Don Stewart. For woodwind quintet (flute, oboe, clarinet, horn, and bassoon). Score. Published by Trillenium Music Company (TR.607).
These two masterful examples of this fine composer's inventive composing for winds are now published for the first time. Wilder is rightly celebrated as a fine composer for horn and woodwinds and here, his ability is clearly shown. This new edition is carefully edited by Don Stewart, who played these works with the composer in the 1980's.
