Written for the New York Woodwind Quintet, The Bremen Town Musicians is a characteristically fanciful and virtuosic treatment of the familiar children's tale of the four animals cast out by their cruel masters, who band together as musicians and wind up driving a den of thieves out of their hideout. Using spoken words, as well as many special effects (key clicks, multiphonics, tongue clicks, et. al.), the 19 minute work is a tour-de force for the musicians designed to charm and delight audiences of all ages. Performance materials for the five players (Flute, Oboe, Bb Clarinet, F Horn, Bassoon) are available on rental.

    I highly recommend this piece for advanced wind quintets for use on educational and children's concerts. The extended techniques asked for in this quintet include multiphonics, humming and playing at the same time, extreme range technique in the horn, fluttertounging in flute, clarinet and bassoon, talking while playing and...
