Annotated Bibliography of Double Wind Quintet Music

This is a bibliography of music for double wind quintet (also called decet, dectet, decimette, dezett, or tentet) and related works. The first section consists of music for the most common interpretation of double wind quintet, namely 2 flutes (or piccolo(s)), 2 oboes (or English horn(s)), 2 clarinets (B flat or A), 2 bassoons, and 2 French horns. Click on the alphabet at the top of the page to move through the list which is arranged alphabetically by the composers last name. Following that section are five smaller lists of related titles. For instance, the standard dwq plus a solo instrument; the basic dwq plus an additional one or two instruments (often extra horns or a trumpet or two), etc. Links to these related sections can be found at the end of this introduction. There are many double wind quintets plus string bass. Sometimes the extra bass is essential and sometimes it can be, with little detrimental effect, left out. When I determine that an okay performance is possible without it, I put the citation in both the main list and the supplemental one. Same for when the other instruments are optional, they will go in both places.

Each citation varies somewhat because of the information that I've been able to find, however, what I've tried to include in each one is:

Site created and maintained by Cate Gerhart. Currently this is a work-in-progress and is being edited as often as possible, sometimes daily! I would love to hear from anyone using the site concerning what they found helpful or not, and what information they might like to have that isn't there. Special thanks to Paul Schlossman who has kindly shared with me information about recordings of some of the pieces below that he has in his extensive collection of wind music recordings.

before an entry indicates that I own a copy of the piece, or, know someone that does and can answer questions about the piece if they aren't answered in the bibliography.

Site first appeared on the WWW June 21, 2005, last edited February 20, 2013. At last count, lists about 360 for regular dwq and about 127 pieces for related instrumentation.

"Composed originally for a centenary concert of the Morley College London, 1984. First performed: June 1st 1984 Morley College Wind Group, conductor, Lawrence Leonard"--Page [68] in composers hand.
Duration: 28 min.

Manuscript resides in London in the British Music Information Centre. In that copy pasted to the inside cover is a typewritten note listing the movements and giving the following information:

Prelude and choral (using the ensemble as a whole)
Concertino (Five variations in the shape of three arias and two ritornelli, featuring solo instruments or groups- oboe solo two horns- flute soli- cor anglais and bassoons- clarinet and bass clarinet, soli.
Antiphony (Finale in which the ensemble is divided antiphonally into two wind quintets.

"Note: Vista was composed for an amateur group of performers. The wind group or 'serenade' was typically a baroque instrument of entertainment, and it suggested the possibility of an essay in a classical style, which the composer was anxious to deploy as a reaction against a number of years of composition mainly in somewhat complex serial methods of the post-Webern era. The nostalgia for a work using classical methods of constructive symmetry was compared by the composer, in the programme-note of the first performance, to an architect who had been working for years in steel and concrete looking through the trees at a vista of Kenwood House on Hampstead Heath, and wishing for an opportunity of building something, even on a small scale in that style."

Arp, Klaus, 1950-
Tentett / Klaus Arp.

I didn't find a nice biography to link to so here's some information from some program notes I've found. Arp is a German composer, teacher, conductor and performs on piano and double bass. He has held positions in Hamburg, Koblenz, and Mainz, as well as guest appearances around the world.

Baker, Lance, 1947-
Blow the wind southerly : double wind quintet / arr. Lance Baker.
[England] : Tickerage Press, [1992?].

Subtitle on 1st page of music: A virtuosity for double wind quintet. "For the Rondel Ensemble"--At head of caption title.
Lance Baker is the son of Ruth Gipps and clarinetist Robert Baker. He plays horn and composes. Tickerage Press was Lance's mother's own publishing company. This piece was originally written as a companion piece for Gipps' Wind sinfonietta which also has an optional tam tam part which Lance played as first horn of the Rondel Ensemble. Interestingly, when this was performed the two horns sat in the middle with a wind quintet arrangement on either side.

Doubles on piccolo (flute 2), English horn (replaces the 2nd oboe), alto sax (only when clarinet in A isn't available to the clarinet 1), bass clarinet (clarinet 2), and the horn 2 plays the optional tam tam.

While this piece is partly variations on this folk song, it is also partly new material. A fairly difficult piece only playable by professionals and very good amateurs.
Duration: about 15 min.
This piece is also listed in the British Music Information Centre directory with the title "Double wind quintet on Blow the wind southerly".

Premiered in about 1995 by the Rondel Ensemble, a group of professional musicians of which the composer played 1st horn.
In addition to the score of this work the British Music Information Centre also lists a recording of this work by the Rondel Ensemble.

Antiphony.
W. Bardwell, 1968.

The British Music Information Centre has a recording of this piece which I listened to on 22 October 2007. I'm not absolutely certain because the cataloging is a bit strange, but I think the recording is of Music Projects London at St. John Smith Square, there's not a date but there is clapping on the tape so it was a live concert. It begins very stridently and dissonantly in the first movement but in the second and third movements the piece takes a more consonant and melodic direction. The third movement is playful with the various instruments playing off each other like a game of tag.

Duration: 14 min.

Manuscript score and parts are held at the BBC Library. I have not had a chance to follow up and verify this.

Beaumont, Adrian, 1937-
Concerto for double wind quintet / Adrian Beaumont.
Isle of Lewis, Scotland : Vanderbeek and Imrie, Ltd. (15 Marvig, Lochs, Isle of Lewis, Scotland PA86 9QP), 1967.

Written in 1967 and premiered by the Bristol University Orchestra wind section. It was subsequently substantially revised in 1998 for the Wind Ensemble of the Wells Cathedral School but was never performed in it's revised form.
This piece is neo-baroque in spirit and the two quick movements use ritornello form, with the ritornellos being played by all ten instruments and solo sections being scored for a variety of smaller groupings. The Andante is largely fugal. The general idiom of the piece is expanded tonality, with all twelve notes used freely with no distinction between major and minor but always with a tonal center.

Not terribly difficult, playable by a good amateur group.
Duration: 17 min.

Lento/Allegro
Andante
Allegro giocoso

Since there isn't a good biography to link to on the Web, here's a short bio: Adrian is from Yorkshire, England. He studied music at the University College in Cardiff, graduated in 1958, master's in 1961, and doctorate in 1972. He is an oboist as well as conductor and composer. He conducted the Bristol Opera and founded the Bristol Bach Choir which he conducted until 1978. He was on the staff of the Music Department of Bristol University from 1961 to 2002 and is a frequent conductor of its' Symphony Orchestra and Choral Society as well as the New Music Ensemble. Married to Janet Price (soprano) since 1963, he's written many pieces for her, as well as pieces for other genres with the exception of opera. Retired since 2002, he spends time gardening and fell-walking when he isn't composing.

This lovely piece features the oboe. It is a one movement work that moves through a number of moods. The first 16 bars are a slow introduction following by a lengthy middle section at a quick tempo. After this middle section in duple meter, it moves to the ending in a triple meter which begins slowly but then speeds up for an exciting fast ending.

While I haven't been able to find a copy of this for sale, there are 15 libraries in the United States that hold it. I won't list them all here but they are spread around the country from California to Maryland to Florida to Minnesota. I was successful in borrowing a copy and have made a copy for private use until I find a copy for sale.

There isn't a biography on the Web, but I found an obituary for Orrin that reads: Orrin James "Fess" Blattner of Saratoga, 88, died Feb. 23 of heart failure. Blattner received his bachelor's and master's degrees from San Jos State University. He bought his home in Saratoga in 1954, where he lived for 52 years. Proficient on more than 20 instruments, Blattner taught music at Los Gatos High School from 1944 to 1977, and arranged many works. He was a member of the San Jose Symphony, both as a trombone player and as the assistant conductor. He was also president of the San Jose Musicians Union Local 153 from 1959 to 1987. He was a bandleader all throughout his adult life, including the Gem City Jazz Band in the Bay Area and the Colorado River Jazz Patrol in Arizona.

Variations on a theme of Handel / Johannes Brahms ; arranged by Tony Turrill.

This arrangment has an optional contrabassoon part. Also the 2nd flute doubles piccolo.
Variations and a fugue on a theme by Handel was originally written for piano and is based on the Handel tune Harmonious blacksmith which is originally the Aria con variazioni from the 2nd collection of the Suites for harpsichord. Tony has chosen to arrange those variations that suit wind instruments the best without departing too much from the original, so the piece is somewhat shorter than the original.

I don't see a biography of Brauer on the Web so here's what I could find about him. He was born in Mannheim on May 9, 1855 and died in Karlsruhe on December 2, 1918. He was primarily a conductor and had studied with Vincenz Lachner and a variety of people at Cologne University. In 1880 he conducted the Cäcilienvereins at Kaiserslautern and in 1888 Hofkirche at Karlsruhe wher he founded a Bach Society in 1905. He also wrote operas and string music.

Burrell, Diana.
Lucid / Diana Burrell.
[S.l.] : United Music Publ., 1999.

Duration: 6 min.
Commissioned by Bedfordshire Orchestra Society, and performed by the Bedford Sinfonia in January 1999.

Lucid alternates between gentle, predominantly chordal music, and a wilder, sometimes harsh and more linear style. Sometimes the ten wind players function as two separate wind quintets, one group echoing the other's phrases or adding colour to a particular moment in a paragraph. At other times, they function as a more homogenous group. Throughout the piece, all players are of equal importance, the second player having material that is as demanding as the first.

Lucid is a purely abstract piece of music, inspired by nothing but the clear, colourful sounds of wind instruments, and the forms and textures of music itself. Its title, with its connotations of light and clarity, is simply the first of the four words at the top of the score which direct the performers as to the style of the first section - 'Lucid, gentle, but lively'.

Burton, Jonathan, 1950-
Some different carols : for wind decet / traditional, arranged by Jonathan Burton.
2007.

This piece was written for Jonathan's quintet, who every Christmas gets together with another quintet for a decet session with mulled wine and mince pies. They play the Raff Sinfonietta which they love and a few other things, finishing up playing rather terrible quintet arrangements of Christmas carols, two to a part. The players always wanted to know ' Why can't we have some different carols?' so at Christmas 2007 Jonathan turned up with this piece. The first flautist was having a 60th birthday, so the last movement is a surprise for him (written in such a way that he can't see what's coming). When Jonathan mentioned this last bit to me and should he delete the birthday bit, I said he should leave it in since, after all, it is a birthday that we celebrate at Christmas so it makes sense to have it there.
Duration: ca. 11 minutes.
Christmas carols arranged in eight movements:
1 - The Mediaeval One (Gaudete)
2 - The Basque one (Ator, ator)[erroneously listed as `Atoz, atoz'-my mistake]
3 - The French one (Il est n, le divin enfant)
4 - The Old English one (The Coventry Carol)
5 - The One About The Holly (from Cornwall)
6 - The Other French one (Nous voici dans la ville)
7 - The Other Mediaeval One (The Boar's Head Carol)
8 - The Very Traditional One (Dies natalis tibi felicitatis)

Found this listed in: Wind ensemble literature, 2nd ed., rev. 1975 / by Reynolds ... [et al.] Haven't found any other mention of it however. Other than indicating that it's for standard dwq this is all that's listed. This publication is somewhat suspect in my view since just below this entry the two Arthur Bird pieces, Suite and Serenade, are listed as by William Byrd. I'll keep looking for verification that an arrangement of a Byrd Pavane exists or existed.

Chandler, Mary, 1911-1996.
Badinages : (1975) for double wind quintet / by Mary Chandler.
Lancaster, UK : Phylloscopus Publications, c1992.
1 score (19 p.) + 10 parts ; 30 cm.

Pictures from life at a music center including scales and tuning. Suite written to celebrate the removal of the Kent Music School Tonbridge Centre to more commodious premises in 1975. A piece not to be taken too seriously, it depicts, somewhat wryly, and with special references to wind teaching, the history of the original music centre from its foundation in 1962.

1. Les gammes: Scales are the foundation of wind playing; they progress from tentative examples in simple keys to arpeggios and chromatics and a triumphantly secure conclusion.
L'accord: Intonation-always a problem. This slow movement is preoccupied (not entirely successfully) with finding a true oboe A.
Les eaux: In 1968 the Centre became disastrously engulfed in the river Medway after a rainfall of 8.5 inches in 16 hours. The Scherzo depicts the drama of this.
Le déménagement: The Finale represents the triumphal procession to the splendid new premises, not without nostalgic backward glances.

Elmer, Roderick, 1947-
The inn on the heath / by Roddy Elmer.

Originally written in 1980 as an historical music play for voice and piano. Later parts of the musical were rewritten for double wind quintet. It is very tonal with the music descriptive of the moods in the play. The tunes are singable by 11 year olds.
This piece was played by various groups at the summer school at Little Benslow Hills, Hitchin, Hertfordshire. Later, in 2002 part of the suite was played by New Harmonie in Horsham, Sussex.

Duration, ca. 30 min.
Roddy studied music at Manchester University, taught in schools in London and Kent, and has a special interest in the Kodaly method. He plays the horn and piano and writes compositions for string orchestra, choral works, a string quartet and many works for wind ensembles and chamber groups. He lives in north London and teaches Junior School. He plays badminton, rambles on the weekends, assistant leader in the Scouts and organist on Sundays.

The three masquerades that follow each use the idiom of either Brahms, Miaskovsky and Schumann to create a tonal but interesting piece. The parody of each composer contain actual quotations as well as elaborations and disguises.

Gorb, Adam.
French dances revisited / Adam Gorb.
G.& M. Brand, 2004.

Commissioned by a Consortium of USA High Schools. Premiered in Minneapolis, Minn. in November 2004.
Duration: 15 min.

This piece was originally conceived during an exercise Gorb set for his students, which was to write a variation for double wind quintet on the Bach keyboard prelude in C, BVW 939. He subsequently took this same prelude and used it as a basis for a kind of Baroque suite for the same combination. The six movements of the work follow the model of the Baroque French suite. The first movement is an Overture featuring an angular introduction followed by a fugato in 5/4 time, followed by a stately Allemande led by flute and bassoon, a lively Courante in fast triple time, a mournful Sarabande featuring solo oboe and horn and a Gavotte that also pays homage to Neo-classicism. The piece ends with a Gigue, which makes much use of canonic writing. This piece has a certain degree of flexibility in the instrumentation, the two horn parts can be played on saxophones, the second bassoon can be played on a bass clarinet and the oboe 2 part on a clarinet.

Overture, Allemande, Courante, Sarabande, Gavotte, Gigue.

Graubart, Michael, 1930-
Sinfonia a 10 / Michael Graubart.
1984.

For 2 flutes, oboe, English horn, clarinet, bass clarinet, 2 bassoons and 2 horns.
This is an atonal, serial piece of music in three movements. It is technically difficult and very difficult rhythmically. It definitely needs a conductor. The group it was written for at an Adult Education college had a reputation for excellence in music (director of Music there included Gustav Holst and Michael Tippett as well as Graubart), so, though the wind group was nominally an amateur one, it was a pretty expert amateur one and included some students at music colleges.

Dedicated to Lawrence Leonard and the Morley Wind Group, it was premiered by them in 1985 at the October Gallery in London with the composer conducting.
Duration: 8 min.

I. Resoluto -- II. Molto allegro -- III. Lento

Michael Graubart was born in Vienna in 1930 and came to England as a refugee in 1938. He studied physics at Manchester University, but spent most of his time there composing and playing the flute. He graduated in 1952 and worked as a development engineer in electronics at EMI and then as a teacher and lecturer in maths and physics while studying composition with Mtys Seiber and flute with Geoffrey Gilbert, playing the flute and conducting various amateur and professional choirs and orchestras. In 1966 he became a tutor and conductor at Morley College in London, and from 1969 to 1991 he was the Director of Music there. He also worked as Musical Director of Focus Opera Group and held the post of Adjunct Professor of Music at the London centre of Syracuse University (U.S.A.). From 1991 to 1996 he was a Senior Lecturer in the School of Academic Studies at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester, taught in the Extra-Mural Department of Manchester University and conducted choirs in the North. He retired in 1996, though he still does some teaching, lecturing, composing and writing. For many years now he has studied philosophy at the Mary Ward Centre and at the City Literary Institute.

Cloister music : for double wind quintet, opus 8 / by Michael Gryspeerdt.
Bristol, UK : Blaise Publications, c1988.
1 score (31 p.) + 10 parts.

This piece was originally written for the wind players of the Gloucestershire Symphony Orchestra. The first performance was in a serenade concert given in the Cloisters of Gloucester Cathedral on 24th June 1988.
The piece has four movements, Prelude, Caprice, Scherzo, and Rondo.
This piece is not terribly difficult but we found it much more satisfying to play it with a conductor because of the tempo and time signature changes. A good amateur group could do it, or possible a very good high school group.

Although not currently being distributed, copies can be obtained by contacting Jeremy de Satge at the Music Makers. the company that published much of Gryspeerdt's other music. The e-mail address is: enquiries@themusicmakers.org.

Dectet : residual ramifications no. 1 / Jonathan Haek.

Hanchet, Pat.
The Only Blonde in the World / Pat Hanchet.
P. Hanchet,

"The Only Blonde in the World" is based on the painting by Pauline Boty (1938 - 1966) which is in the Liverpool Tate Gallery. It is intended to be within the technical grasp of an amateur ensemble and is "flexibly" scored, with the aim of using as wide a variety of clefs, keys, transpositions as possible within the group. Each player reads from the same stave, but imagines (or writes in ) a different clef and key signature.

The picture shows a glamorous young Blonde stepping out as if to perform or meet her public. Her head and upper torso exude confidence but her high-heel shod and spindly legs look wobbly and fragile.

The music starts on one instrument, soft and low, slinky and slow. As the each instrument enters, faster and higher than the previous one, and in a different key, we sense her increasing unease until the music becomes frantic. Gradually the mood changes back from neurotic to erotic as she presents herself in the appropriate manner.

Kimpton, Geoffrey, 1927-
Sinfonietta for double wind-quintet / Geoffrey Kimpton.
London, England :BMIC, 1967.

This piece was originally written to be submitted for a competition but wasn't finished in time. It was performed, nonetheless, successfully in the 1960s.

Not an easy piece, it is bolder in style than other pieces by Kimpton.

Kimpton was born in Lincoln, England in 1927 and Geoffrey Kimpton was born in Lincoln, England, in 1927. He became interested in music very young while listening to great singers and instrumentalists who performed in the Cathedral and in churches and halls during and shortly after the war. For two years in his early teens he travelled to Huddersfield for inspiring lessons from the great Yorkshire violin teacher Arthur Kaye. He also studied harmony and counterpoint with Dr. Gordon Slater, the Lincoln cathedral organist. After National Service, he studied in London at the Guildhall School of Music. Alfred Nieman, his composition teacher, had the Midas touch in transforming simple beginnings by his magical improvisations. There followed two memorable years at the Vienna Academy, then back to London, and Birmingham. The music of Andrzej Panufnik, for two years conductor of the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, was a great inspiration and influence. In the early 1960s, Geoffrey and his family settled in Manchester, and he has had a varied career as an orchestral player (in the BBC Northern Orchestra, now the BBC Philharmonic), as a lecturer, violin teacher and composer. Over the years, various works for instrumental ensemble (some with voice) have been performed in Manchester, Birmingham, Cheltenham and St. David's Cathedral. These include a Passacaglia and Fugue for string orchestra, a quartet, a string trio and several larger scale chamber works for strings and wind instruments. He has written many songs for competitions and concerts organised by the English Poetry and Song Society. Several of these have been awarded prizes, and have been performed in Bath, Bristol and Manchester.

Various works of his have been recorded: 'The Upland Path' for solo violin, 'The Bridge of Hope' for violin and piano (in three movements), 'Serenade' for clarinet and piano (in four movements), and three songs, as part of a CD arranged by the North West Composers' Association. His latest recording is a double CD of twenty-eight of his own songs, performed by five splendid artists. The poems he has set, on the theme of 'Love and Loss', contain a wonderful variety of human experience: from rural contentment to hopeless longing and mental anguish, assuaged only by the muse of poetry; from witty analogies to a simple and sincere vow of lifelong fidelity; and to the tragic loss of young lives in warfare.

While the Sinfonietta is not published, it is available from the composer, who can be reached at: gkimpton@fish.co.uk.

Langley, James W., 1927-1994.
Sinfonia for ten wind instruments / James Langley.
1967.
1 score ([54] p.) ; 42 cm. + 10 parts ; 35 cm.

One flute doubles on piccolo.
This piece appears to be unpublished since the only copy I've found is a reproduction of the manuscript that resides in the Eastman School of Music Library. There isn't a mention of this piece in either the BMIC or the BL even though Langley is British. No idea how Eastman ended up with the only copy to be found. However, the Wind ensemble literature, 2nd ed., rev. 1975 / by Reynolds ... [et al.] says that the Composers Guild of Great Britain has a copy so I'll check that out.

I didn't find a nice biography page to link to for Langley, but I did find an interesting page for a memorial trust set up after his unexpected death. The James Langley Memorial Trust page indicates that Langley was a music producer at the BBC and was devoted to the Midlands Youth Orchestra where he served in many roles, including music director.

Lanning, Jerry, 1944-

Larsson, Martin Q., 1968-
Basho winds / Martin Larsson.
2003.

For flute, piccolo, oboe, English horn, clarinet in A, bass clarinet, 2 bassoons, 2 horns.
Written between September 2002 and October 2003.
Duration: ca. 12 min.

The composer notes say: The Basho Trilogy is inspired from texts by Matsuo Basho who lived in Japan during the 17th century and who is regarded as the master of haiku (or hokku), an epigrammatic Japanese verse form in 17 syllables. In the piece there are no written dynamics and very few phrase marks. It is the composer's wish that the ensemble on its own works these parameters out, according to their own likings. The movements may be performed separately or together.

Basho 1 (Stand still! A dagger-thrust against the cliffs. Voices of the Cicadas) (3 min.)
Basho 2 (On a withered branch. A crow has stopped. Twilight in autumn) (3 min.)
Den hemlighetsfulla mumien (The mysterious mummy) (6 min.)

1987.

The Dezet was composed in 1987. It has a fairly traditional four-movement form. There are very few solo passages, and these tend towards being quite short.

Mellin, G.
Menuet badin : pour instruments à vent / G. Mellin.
Paris : Evette & Schaeffer, [18--?]

I have found two additional sources that indicate this was published by Andraud which was bought by Southern.
In the publication Wind chamber music by Barbera Secrist-Schmedes, this is listed as by "Melin, Bengt" who she says was born in 1928 and was published by Southern Music but Southern has never heard of this piece and I think the composer is actually G. Mellin. The Free Library of Philadelphia hold a dwq with this title and they list the composer as G. Mellin. I've been in contact with them and they have verified that the instrumentation is standard dwq with no doublings. The FLP have an engraved set of parts published in Paris by Evette & Schaeffer, they think sometime in the 1800s. I think this is more likely to be the correct composer for this piece. I'm seeing now if I can get a copy to look at. If anyone in the Philly area would like to help, e-mail me!

Navok, Lior, 1971-
Tetris : for ten wind players / Lior Navok.
2010.

For standard double wind quintet with no doublings.
Written for the Hindemith Woodwind Quintet and commissioned by the Hochschule fur Musik, Mainz with kind support from the Annie Eisler Lehmenn Stiftung. Premiered in November 2010 in Leipzig.
Lior reflects on his impressions of NYC, on one hand the constant movement and things happening and on the other hand the many tragedies for unfortunate people. The piece consists of four connected sections: Keep moving, Gutter People, Getting busy and Keeping busy. The first and fourth movements refer to the continuous, breathless pace of life. The third movement is a short satire about restless people. The second movement is inspired by the thousands of people who spend all their life in the cellar of a restaurant or shop after immigrating from far away, only to serve the ever-hurrying people above them.
Duration: 18 min.

Four connected sections:
Keep moving -- Gutter people -- Getting busy -- Keeping busy.

Double quintet / Roger North.

This piece was written in 1951 when North was a student at the Royal Academy of Music. At the moment the composer does not have a copy of the piece since in 1951 he gave it to a colleague that was interested in performing it and never got it back from that person. So, while it is not available at the moment perhaps someday it will turn up in an archive or library somewhere or, more likely, in someone's attic! If it ever turns up perhaps we'll be able to see how it stood the test of time.

Flute II doubles on piccolo, oboe II on English horn and clarinet II on bass clarinet.
Duration: 21 min.

I. Intrada -- II. Sonata -- III. Intermezzo -- IV. Antifon -- V. Rondo finale.

On the t.p. verso of the manuscript examined at BMIC on 22 Oct. 2007 there is suggested programme note:

The Intrada consists of a series of brief duets for the paired instruments punctuated by chorale-like passages for the instruments so far introduced; it culminates in a short phrase of the three chords which will form the basis of the Rondo in the fifth movement, but which here poises the music before leading directly into the next movement. Sonata. The melodic ideas presented in this introduction are closely related to each other by depending exclusively on a single untransposed form (and its retrograde) of the twelve note row on which the whole work is based.
The second movement is Sonata-like in its use of themeatic contrasts, recognisable development section of overt transformations of the material, recapitulation and coda; it even retains a shadow of tonal structure in the manipulation of the transposition chosen for various thematic events.
In the lightweight Intermezzo, material for the paired horns functions as a trio-like interpolation in the main texture and the slow Antifon tends to exploit various groupings of the ensemble including verse-like recitatives for solo instruments. These two movements are the only ones employing the auxiliary instruments, piccolo, cor anglais and bass clarinet.
The 5/8 phrase which runs throughout the Rondo-Finale is not so much a settled rondo theme as a variable idea seeking resolution, which is eventually finds in the final bars, revealing its relationship to the ending of the Intrada; the various episodes are extended versions of the brief duets with which the instruments were originally introduced at the beginning of the work. B.D.O.

Duration: ca. 6-7 min.
Doubles piccolo, English horn, bass clarinet and contrabassoon.
Not an easy piece, would need conservatory ability players to do it justice.
The style of work is hard to describe but the composer has some mp3s of some of his pieces on the Web that you can listen to at: http://www.itp.nyu.edu/~dhp1. What I listened to reminded me of using music to evoke colors of sound, not much melody. Reminded be of the music often heard in movies where a mood is trying to be created without a melody getting in the way of the action.

Might be availabe from the composer, he's looking for it at last contact.

Leipzig : C.F.W. Siegel's Musikalhandlung, [1874?].
1 score + 10 parts.

Composed in 1873 in Wiesbaden without a dedication.
Movement one, in greatly modified and expanded binary form, features a lovely, asymmetrically-phrased chorale melody (3+5) that is developed with excellent counterpoint and orchestration. The scherzo-like second movement is a rollicking Tarantella in compound time and quasi rondo form. The lyrical third movement, in rounded binary form (ABABA Coda), has a repeated section dramatically cast in the parallel minor mode. Movement four is an instrumental whirlwind in modified sonata form requiring virtuosic playing throughout. (Note by Robert J. Garofalo from the CBDNA Website)

Duration: 10 min.

Saunders, Matthew, 1976-
Sinfonietta / by Matthew Saunders.
M. Saunders, 2002.

For standard double wind quintet with no doublings.
Basically tonal, using traditional melodic techniques with some mixed and assymetrical meters in the 1st and last movements. The second movement is a stylistic tribute to British composer Malcolm Arnold and borrows a formal-harmonic plan common to his English and Scottish Dances.

Four movements: I. q=108 -- II. Homage a Malcolm Arnold -- III. q=104 -- IV. q.=80.

Premiered November 3, 2004 by a group of Ohio State University students conducted by the composer and coached by the bassoon teacher at OSU, Christopher Weait.

Originally written for an amateur group in Dayton, Ohio, it was composed during the summer vacation from teaching public school. Matthew had been exposed to this medium while at University of Cincinnati but being a trombone player could only get "in on the action" by composing. The group he originally had in mind for the piece did not end up playing it, so it didn't get its premiere until two years later when Matthew returned to school to get his graduate degree in composition.

The Malcolm Arnold connection was inspired by Matthew's experiences with that neglected composer's music, especially a recording project in which he participated in during the Spring of 2002 with the Sinclair Community College Community Wind Symphony in Dayton, Ohio.

Suitable for a good amateur group or better. A professional group might well be able to perform it without a conductor.
Duration: ca. 11 min.

Although not published, it is available from the composer who can be reached by e-mail at: two2twain@hotmail.com. You can also take a look at the score of the first movement on Score Exchange.

Spittal, Robert.
Consort for ten winds / Robert Spittal.
New York : Boosey & Hawkes, 2005.
(Windependence)

This is a beautiful three movement piece now available in published form from Boosey. Originally written in 2000 it has previously only been available from the composer. This piece could be played by a good high school group as well as being a good work for professional players. The piece is melodic, with interesting harmonies and good parts for all 10 voices. The second movement has a somewhat more difficult first flute part which would require a more advanced player than the 2nd flute part. Very few tempo changes within movements which makes this piece possible to do fairly well without a conductor.

Sketches on themes by Ned : for chamber wind ensemble / Robert Spittal.
Spokane : Shaba Road Music, 2007.

Commissioned in the summer of 2005 and premiered at a private party on September 9th, 2005 this piece was a special gift from the author of this bibliography to her husband, Ned Gerhart on their 25th wedding anniversary. The piece is based on melodies that Ned has written over that past few years for piano. Bob Spittal has woven three of Ned's melodies into a piece played with a break, including a section for improvisation in the middle.

Perhaps a bit more difficult than the Consort but very playable by any group of good players. This piece more than the Consort needs a conductor. Bob did some revisions in 2007 and so what it now available is the revised version.

Taylor, Alan.
Lugubrian dances : for double wind quintet / by Alan Taylor.
[S.l.] : Alan Taylor, 2006.

Four dances that reflect the folk music of the small province in southern Albania called Lugubria.
Lugubria is a small province in southern Albania, whose Italianised name is the result of its many years as a colony of the Venetian Republic - abruptly terminated by the Ottoman Turkish conquest of 1776. The local Albanian majority and Greek-speaking minority have freely absorbed musical influences from these imperial cultures, borrowed musical ideas from one another, and absorbed motifs and ideas from the small Roma and Macedonian populations in some parts of the provinces, as well as from the former Ladino-speaking (mediaeval Spanish) Jewish population who lived there from their expulsion from Spain in 1493 until the Nazis came. The result is a folk music of remarkable variety, but with the common element that the songs and dances frequently end inconclusively. These four dances reflect the music of this little known region. (Hmm...)

Also there is a performance note: "The key to the successful performance of these pieces will be to establish the rhythms very clearly - they are irregular and frequently changing, and the pieces will hang together if each player observes them carefully. Care should be taken to observe the dynamics, since these may vary between parts in order to bring out the main line. In the third Dance in particular, there is nearly always one instrument marked louder than the others, and it should be allowed to come through.

Duration: 9 min.

1. Nintricë three-step -- 2. Zabije-Mycsaj lament -- 3. Matransi serenade -- 4. Domsne gallop
Duration: 10 min.

Tucker, Christopher, 1976-
Feather in the morning air / Christopher Tucker.
2003.

Doubles piccolo, English horn and bass clarinet. Needs a bassoon with the low A extension.
Dedicated to composition professor at UT Austin, Dan Welcher.
It was originally composed in the spring of 2000, then arranged for chamber orchestra in 2002, and finally revised in 2003 into its final form.
This is a difficult piece but tonal and melodic. It incorporates stylistic techniques from Percy Grainger's catalogue of repertoire into the piece's musical sound. The work consists of two main melodic lines, an original melody, which dominates the work, and as a tribute to Percy Grainger, the other, Oh, Danny Boy (Irish Tune from County Derry). Both melodies are employed through a wide variety of styles and textures. The final four bars embrace the two melodies as well as two frequently used chromatic motives juxtaposed to an overwhelming, steadfast climax.

Christopher named this piece before he wrote it, and tells me that he endeavored to depict a feather floating gracefully through the 'morning air' by taking the main melodic elements and 'floating' them through the different sections of the piece.
Duration: ca. 10 min., 30 sec.

Hill on a walk : for double wind quintet (decet) / Benjamin Wardhaugh.
[England] : B. Wardhaugh, 2004.
1 score (19 p.) + 10 parts.

Commissioned in 2004 by the Southwark Consorts of Winds

The ambiguity of the title is intentional - is the hill walking or being walked on? - and the 'walk' refers to the structure of the piece. Sometimes the walk refers to a previous location; sometimes it moves in an unexpected direction, but there are unexpected reversals or changes of perspective as new vistas open up. A small amount of musical material is constantly reinterpreted: in a sense it is the opening flute melody which goes on a walk. If the players are seen as two quintets, the relationship between the two shifts from generally cooperative to generally antagonistic during the central section, and the resulting tension is not resolved.

Durationa: 7 min., 30 sec.

Warlock, Peter, 1894-1930.
Capriol suite / Peter Warlock ; arranged for wind dectet by John Geddes.
Oxfordshire, England : Ariel Music, c2003.

This piece was originally written in 1926 in two different versions, one for piano (4 hands) and one for string orchestra. In 1928 the composer arranged it for full orchestra. It takes its melodic material from the book Orchesographie by Thoinot Arbeau, published in 1588 which explains the complexities of 16th century dance.

Although this arrangement is for double wind quintet it can be performed with slightly different scoring. Included in this edition is a clarinet part which can substitute for the oboe II in movements 1, 4, and 6. A clarinet can also be substituted for bassoon I if movement 4 is omitted.

Reflections : serenade no. 2 / Guy Woolfenden.
Oxfordshire, England : Ariel Music, 2008.

Premiered on April 16, 2008 in Oxford, England. Commissioned by Simon Payne and the Oxford Sinfonia.
The piece is 3 movements wit the 2nd movement beginning and ending with a bassoon solo in memory of the great English bassoonist, William Waterhouse, who died shortly after work began on the piece. Guy attended the same school as William. The outer movements are reflections on the witty, humorous side of Bill and the composer's own happy childhood memories.
Duration: ca. 13 min.

Woolfenden, Guy, 1937-
Serenade for Sophia / Guy Woolfenden.
Oxfordshire, England : Ariel Music, c2003.
1 score (22 p.) + 10 parts.

This piece was written to celebrate the birth of the composer's first grandchild, in 2001. It consists of three movements. The Intrada sums up the happy event of Sophia's arrival, and is in a forms A-B-A structure. The Dance which follows taps into the rich culture of Sophia's Jamaican relations. The finale plays on the juxtaposition of two contrasted moods, first reflective and then happier.

This is a piece my group has worked on and find very rewarding to play. There are some sections where an amateur group like mine needs a conductor to keep everything together. There are some places where the meter changes frequently as well as the tempo. The piece has lovely melodies and harmonies and isn't terribly difficult. May even be playable by an above average high school group.

Duration: 11 min.

The three movements are played without pause.

Lewis, Peter Tod, 1932-1982.
Sestina : for woodwind ensemble / by Peter Lewis.
New York : Composers Facsimile Edition, c1985.

Written in in 1962 and 1963.

A piano piece with the same title was finished in 1962 right before this piece was begun so this may be an arrangement of it but I haven't examined both scores to figure it out. A few libraries in the US have this work including Universisty of Houston, University of Wisconsin at Madison, and University of Illinois. Only Wisconsin has the parts.

There's not a good site to link to for a biography but here's some information about Peter. Peter Tod Lewis (1932-1982) was born in Charlottlesville, Virginia, and spent his formative years on both coasts of the United States. He attended the University of California at Santa Barbara and Brandeis University in Massachusetts, studying with Arthur Berger, Morton Feldman, Irving Fine, and Lukas Foss. Lewis was a fellow at the Tanglewood Music Center, Huntington Hartford Foundation, and MacDowell Colony, and held residences at Southern Illinois University, the Instituut voor Sonologie in Utrecht, Netherlands, and Groupe de Musique Experimentale in Bourges, France. In 1969 he became director of the Electonic Music Studios at the University of Iowa, a position he held until his death from cancer in 1982.

Variations and a fugue on a theme by Handel was originally written for piano and is based on the Handel tune Harmonious blacksmith which is originally the Aria con variazioni from the 2nd collection of the Suites for harpsichord. Tony has chosen to arrange those variations that suit wind instruments the best without departing too much from the original, so the piece is somewhat shorter than the original.

These variations are played without a pause and are tuneful and inventive. It isn't too difficult, playable by very good students or a good amateur group. It attempts to put into musical language the nine muses of the classical period. Although this is a theme with variations, the presence of other formal structures such as sonata, rondo and dance movements, often obscures this identity.

1 score (21 p.) + 11 parts ; 28 cm.

Born in 1917 in London, "Tony" Arnell is famous for his symphonic and film works. His music is romantic in nature and approachable. The first movement of this piece is serious and reflective, the second light and humorous, the third a lovely cantabile, and the final an exhilarating ballet featuring dance rhythms.
This piece was written in 1949 and was recorded by the London Baroque Ensemble with Karl Haas, to whom the work is dedicated, directing.

In 1880 he conducted the Cäcilienvereins at Kaiserslautern and in 1888 Hofkirche at Karlsruhe wher he founded a Bach Society in 1905. He also wrote operas and string music.
