“This work is based on the use of five notes, D, E, F, A and B, that are distributed amongst the five instruments. As the work develops ever more larger leaps are used as well as increasing chromaticism. In addition, the composer integrates displaced loops and extended techniques, such as aeolian sound, singing while playing, key slaps and breathing noises.”

El-Dabh says that “the music remains true to the Arabic melismatic passages.”

Elgar, Edward William (1857-1934)

Music for Woodwind Quintet, Op. 6 (for 2 flutes, oboe, clarinet and bassoon or cello) (1878-1881).

22 pieces have been, somewhat haphazardly, included under this opus including one which is 4 movements long. They were unpublished until 1976, edited by Richard McNichol who divided the pieces into the 7 volumes below. Written for his own use, Elgar played bassoon AND cello on these pieces. Taken together, they are a substantial portion of Elgar’s early work which only recently came to light. See Arthur Cohn, “The Literature of Chamber Music” for much more info on these volumes.

These works were recorded by the Athena Ensemble in their original instrumentation in 1978, released in 1992 by Chandos (CHAN 6553). Very brief sound samples are available at http://www.allmusic.com/album/elgar-complete-works-for-wind-quintet-mw0001946254 . The site also features a bit of a condescending review by James Leonard. (I wish I knew which Mozart wind quintets he believes Elgar modeled his pieces after, since Mozart didn’t actually write any, except the piano quintet.) More recently, several of these recordings have found their way to YouTube at https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLXc3pZCEfX3ZR0yWYDqN843L9lj7WZoyw .

Below, first see the original 7 volumes (with timings), then newer printed versions of these works (for both the original instrumentation and arranged for standard woodwind quintet).

Vol. I: Six Promenades (1878) (14:00)

Croydon: Belwin Mills, 1977

The Belwin Mills publications appear to be just for the original scoring, without any arrangement for the standard woodwind quintet instrumentation. See below for the Trevco publications with both.

Vol. II: Harmony Music No. 1 (4:02), Harmony Music No. 2 (10:18) (1879)

Croydon: Belwin Mills, 1977

Both are single movement works.

Vol. III: Harmony Music 3 & 4 (1879)

Croydon: Belwin Mills, 1977

No. 3 is incomplete (3:17), No. 4 “The Farmyard” (12:00), a longer sonata form.

Vol. IV: Harmony Music 5 (1879)

Croydon: Belwin Mills, 1977

Movements: The mission (11:40); Menuetto and trio (5:34); Noah‘s ark (4:15); Finale (5:46).

Vol. V: Five Intermezzos (1879)

Croydon: Belwin Mills, 1977

Elgar reportedly liked this set the best out of the entire collection.
Movements: No. 1 Nancy (1:30); No. 2 Mrs. and Miss Howell (1:23); No. 3 (1:10); No. 4 (2:05); No. 5 (1:30).

Vol. VI: Four Dances (1879) (12:30).

Croydon: Belwin Mills, 1977

Vol. VII: Adagio cantabile (“Mrs. Winslow‘s Soothing Syrup”) (3:42) and Andante con variazione (“Evesham Andante”) (5:00) (1879)

“Nimrod” Variation 9 from The Enigma Variations, Op. 36 (arr. Jeanie Murrow)

Salem, Ct.: Cimarron Music Press, 2007. cimarronmusic.com

The only variation of the Enigma Variations frequently performed on its own, this and Barber’s Adagio for Strings are often performed as memorial works. Honestly, it‘s hard to see how a quintet could match the dramatic impact if used for this purpose and, if taken as slow as usually done with strings, there might be an endurance issue, too. (I’m willing to be proved wrong, though.) [Andrew Brandt]

Ru’akh Quintet (1995)

Tel Aviv: Israel Music Institute

Duration: 10:00.

According to the composer, “Ru’akh in Hebrew literally means ‘wind’. Ru’akh Quintet was composed for the New Israeli Woodwind Quintet… I wanted the piece to feature the individual character of each of the members of the quintet. The piece is built of six sections, five of which are instrumental solos, one for each member of the group, while the others are accompanying. The remaining section acts as a middle section where all are playing together on an equal basis.”

The Inn on the Heath for double woodwind quintet (1980)

Duration: 30:00. Music available from the composer.

According to Catherine Gerhart (Annotated Bibliography of Double Wind Quintet Music), this work was “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.”

Theme and Variations in G Minor for double woodwind quintet (2000)

Etler, Alvin Derald (1913-1973)

Quintet No. 1 (1955)

New York: Associated Music Publishers 1960, 1962

Duration: 15:30.

Barbera Secrist-Schmedes, in Wind Chamber Music, describes this work as “contrapuntal in style and similar to Fine‘s Partita in that the focus is on movement of parts rather than on instrumental color. Etler is economical–many times only two voices sounding.”
Arthur Cohn in “The Literature of Chamber Music” informs us that Etler was “a first rate oboist,” and that this work‘s “sonorities are a constant joy of fresh discovery…”

Quintet No. 2 (1957)

New York: Associated Music Publishers, 1960

Dexter, Michigan: TrevCo-Varner Music 2014?

Duration: 16:00. Recorded by the Sierra Wind Quintet.

Very challenging 4-movement work, using serial techniques. Has some lovely bassoon solos (bassoonist needs to read treble clef for third movement). Haven’t performed the work but would like to. [Andrew Brandt]

Arthur Cohn calls this “Sterner, stronger soundstuff” than Etler‘s first quintet, and “no nonsense.”
