Cambini, Giuseppe Maria (1746-1818 or later)

Three Concert Quintets (“Trois Quintetti Concertans”) (ca. 1802)

Paris: Sieber, 1802

Originals are located in the U.S. Library of Congress.

Score and parts for all three quintets are now also available for download from the International Music Score Library Project, at http://imslp.org/wiki/3_Wind_Quintets_(Cambini,_Giuseppe_Maria).

This composer has also mistakenly been called Giovanni Giuseppe Cambini. He was active in Paris, his death is shrouded in obscurity and may have been as early as 1818, although some sources say 1825. He also wrote at least 28 Symphonies Concertantes, many of them using groups of woodwinds. Although Cambini is not nearly as accomplished a composer as Mozart or Haydn, these 3 works are interesting because they may be the first woodwind quintets ever written for flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon and horn. They remain light, classical works which were later eclipsed by the quintets of Danzi and Reicha. [Andrew Brandt]

According to the composer: “Library Talk was written during my graduate days at the University of California, Irvine. My composition professor, Dr Peter S Odegaard, had gotten some grant money and decided to hire a woodwind quintet. So his students were assigned the task of creating them music. To save time, I dug out various pieces and thematic ideas from my undergraduate days and tied them together as a tribute to all the hours I’d spent in the library doing research….” He describes the work as of moderate difficulty (mostly rhythmic) with some high horn parts.

Richmond, Virginia: International Opus

Duration: 7:00. First performed by the
Metropolitan Wind Quintet with Marietta Bitter, harpist, in New York City, Feb. 22, 1952.

Excerpt from a New York Herald review: “The most striking new
presentation was the Suite for Harp and Wind Quintet by Chou Wen-Chung…. Harmonically, the suite is as Western as its delicate modalism will allow. Texturally, it is more exotic, the five traditional Chinese melodies…. acquire a wealth of harmonic and instrumental color without losing their essential monodic character. That the suite is a thorough expressive success…is immediately apparent.”

With a plethora of Steven Cohens, I was finally able to narrow down these works to the only, living Steve Cohen I could contact on the web. Nevertheless, this NYC-based composer should not be confused with Steve Cohn who is clearly a separate, Los Angeles based composer (see below). There is also an additional Steven Cohen who is a guitarist and unrelated to our Steve Cohen. There may be a separate composing Steven Cohen, but I no longer can find online references to him. If any readers know of any other quintet-writing Steven Cohens, please contact me! [Andrew Brandt]

Afro-Cuban Concerto, for woodwind quintet (2001)

Red Clay and Mississippi Delta (2009)

Subtitled, “Scherzo for wind quintet”. Duration: 5:25. See the Imani Winds’ video of a live performance with the composer on flute.

For those not familiar with U.S. geography, the title is a reference to the Southern Mississippi River region (parts of Tennessee, Arkansas, Louisiana and Mississippi), the deepest of the Deep South and the heart of the Blues tradition. The work features impressive solos for clarinet and bassoon and will have several players snapping their fingers (it’s in the score). [Andrew Brandt]

“speech, and canzone” (2002) for woodwind quintet and mp4

Duration: 12:00. .

Concerto for Wind Quintet

Although titled a concerto, it’s for woodwind quintet alone, but features each of the instruments virtuosically. Duration: 15:35. Recorded by the Imani Winds, listen on YouTube: Afro: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CkqD2YLpjtY . Danza https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V4gMX9lja68 . Vocalise https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TffcNbq_FgI . Contact the composer on her site or the Imani Winds website, to see if the parts are available for sale.

Listening to the online versions on YouTube (and not on the Imani Winds album, the classical underground, it’s unclear of the exact order of the movements. But Afro and Danza definitely should be the high energy outer movements and the Vocalise the inner, more contemplative movement. And when I say “high energy”, I’m talkin’ launching a rocket into deep space explosive energy. Listen and decide for yourself. Recommended for the hip, professional quintet. [Andrew Brandt]

Suite: Portraits of Josephine (2006)

Contreras, Salvador (1912-1982)

Dos Piezas Dodecafonicas (Two 12-tone Pieces) (1966)

Juarez, Mexico: Centro Nacional de Investigacion, Documentacion e Informacion Musical Carlos Chavez

There seems to be some difference of opinion on whether Contreras was born in 1910 or 1912, with most of the scholarly publications using 1912.

Allan Kozinn, in his Jan. 13, 1991 review in The New York Times, wrote, “Salvador Contreras’s ‘Dos Piezas Dodecafonicas’ (1966), a wind quintet, was a pleasant reminder that 12-tone writing can be lyrical – in this case, Copland-like – when composers wish.”

A Klezmer Wedding (1998)

Rottenburg, Germany: Advance Music, 1998

Duration: 8:00. Also uses percussion (trap set). There are also versions for woodwind quartet and double reed quartet.

A very pleasant collection of Klezmer tunes that appears to work well for the quintet. The percussion may be optional but adds a lot to the overall affect. [Andrew Brandt]

Peter & the Wolf (with narrator) (1998)

Ft. Collins: MSS Pub.

Duration: 12:00.

Wind players who are used to performing this work in its
orchestra version will likely find this arrangement disappointing. Many of the solo sections are truncated, string parts are not necessarily filled in by other members of the quintet, and much of the narration is unaccompanied in places where the orchestra version has music underneath. However, after listening to a recording, this arrangement appears to be a simple and easy arrangement of this classic for young audiences and the less experienced quintet. [Andrew Brandt] (See the entry under Prokofiev for other options.)

Curtis-Smith, Curtis (Otto Bismarck) (1941-2014)
