Customer Rating:   1 Review Write a Review


Woodwind Quintet, Woodwinds - Grade 5
Woodwind Quintet. Composed by Darius Milhaud (1892-1974). Woodwind Solos & Ensembles - Woodwind Quintet. Southern Music. Suite. 20th Century. Score and set of parts. 42 pages. Southern Music Company #SS394. Published by Southern Music Company (HL.3774033).

Item Number: HL.3774033

It is interesting to note that this music was orignally written for the film 'Cavalcade d'Amour' which dealt with the subject of love in three different time periods: the Middle Ages, the 19th Century, and the 20th century. Milhaud wrote this music for the first segment of the film and the balance was composed by Honegger and Desmormiere. There is an expression which has been adopted from the French Language - "Se Chauffer a la cheminee du roi Rene" which translates literally "to warm one's self at King Rene's chimney" and really means "to bask in the sun.".

  • March 22, 2007 For serious woodwind quintet players.

    This piece is an integral part of woodwind quintet repertoire. Look forward to appreciating the depth of the writing as the performance improves with each rehearsal.
