Carl Fischer Music Editor-in-Chief and veteran composer Larry Clark has penned a beautiful quintet for winds, commissioned by the Ars Nova Quintet at James Madison University in 1991, where it was premiered. Quartal and quintal harmonies are the driving force behind this piece in three movements; each exploring a different style. "Frolic" is inspired by Stravinsky's use of stacked fifths, "Song" is melancholy and thoughtful, and "Rondo" goes out with a bang, loosely following the rondo format and ending soundly in F major. For advanced players.
