Excellent Wind Quintet
I just performed this wonderful quintet. It was both enjoyable for the musicians to play and for the audience to listen to. It is about 7-8 minutes long. The first and third movements are very exciting and fun movements, and are technically quite challenging. (The first movement is a set of variations on the familiar "Drunken Sailor" tune.) The middle movement provides a gentle quiet contrast to the outer movements. This piece requires pretty advanced players to pull it off. The horn part in particular is pretty rangy (written D3-D6), and includes stopped and muted passages. All the instruments get soloistic parts at some point in the piece. Enjoy!
