Musica para teatro (Music for the Theater) (1956)

Portland, Oregon USA: Editions VIENTO (see also Trevco Music Publishing)

5 movements: Moderato; Lento expressivo; Andantino; Calmo; and Scherzando.

Ron Klimko reviews: “…the movements are overlapped thematically by the transformation of small thematic ideas from one to the other. The mood is quite expressive throughout with a rhythmic Latin flavor, and generally quiet in nature until the spirited and rhythmic scherzando that ends the work with a nice flair…. [I]t deserves to reach a larger audience and I recommend it strongly to you if you are looking for interesting ‘new’ music for your quintet to play.” (The Double Reed, Vol. 24, No. 4)

Composer George has a confusing numbering system for his brass and woodwind quintets. His catalog appears to have Quintet No. 1 for woodwind quintet, plus Quintet No. 1 for brass quintet, and the same duplication for Nos. 2 and 3. It’s unclear if he arranged each piece for two different ensembles or if they are completely separate pieces. Quintets 4 & 5 are just for brass. See http://www.isu.edu/~georthom/complist.html .

Gnattali, Radamés(1906-1988)

Suite para Quinteto de Sopros (1971)

Movements: I. Prelúdio; II. Valsa; III. Modinha; IV. Choro; V. Final. Duration: 9:50. The piece is dedicated to the Quinteto Villa-Lobos, which has recorded the work. A live performance is also available on Youtube in a performance by Minas Ventos.

Radamés Gnattali was both a serious composer and an arranger of popular tunes for radio. This work seems to meld both together in an original work. It is harmonically fairly conservative, but features rhythms of more popular Brazilian folk styles. My favorite movement is the Choro (fourth movement), although it‘s much more conservative than some of Villa-Lobos’s Choros. This a nice, light work likely to be enjoyed by audiences with spritely rhythms that keep it interesting for the players. Quintets who partner with a pianist should also check out Gnattali’s Divertimento for winds and piano (in our list of works for winds and keyboard), which may be the better work. [Andrew Brandt]

New York: Independent Music Publishers, 1956

Duration: 18:10. Composed for the New Art Wind Quintet.

Cohn (in “The Literature of Chamber Music”) likes Goeb’s 1st quintet, but calls No. 2 “fascinating,” “This is truly a special composition, one with its own woodwind writ, wind quintet teams should be grateful, and so should listeners.”

Goldfaden, Richard

Story of the Woodwind Family (1933)

ALRY Publications Etc., Inc. (P. O. Box 36542, Charlotte, NC 28236 USA

Tlbasham[at]aol.com describes it as “…kind of on the Opus [No.] Zoo lines, but the sophistication of the narrative is interesting to about 5th grade and below.” Written for the Charlotte Symphony (West Virginia) Woodwind Quintet for educational programs.

Jean-Marc Larsen of Quebec writes, “The music is in traditional style, and it gives a good idea of a wind quintet. After an introduction by the whole quintet, the instruments are introduced as characters in a story. Depending on the narrator and the time that you have, it can be a very educational and fun piece to the kids.”

Göpfert, Carl Andreas (Goepfert) (1768-1818)

Bläserquintett

Göpfert is best known to clarinetists for his five clarinet concerti. His quintet is not listed in his online biographies, and may be unpublished or it may be a misattribution. This composer should not be confused with Karl Eduard Goepfart (1859-1942), whose quartet for winds is featured in the Andraud collection of 22 Quintets and has been recorded.

French Dances Revisted (2004) for double woodwind quintet

Brighton, UK:G&M Brand, 2004, http://www.gmbrand.co.uk/

Commissioned by a Consortium of USA High Schools. Movements: Overture; Allemande; Courante; Sarabande; Gavotte; Gigue. Duration: 15:00.

The composer states, “French Dances Revisited was conceived during an exercise I set some of my students, which was to write a variation on the Bach keyboard prelude in C BVW 939 for double wind quintet. Subsequently I thought it a good idea to take this same prelude and use it as a basis for a kind of Baroque suite for the same combination. I hope that what I’ve written doesn’t sound too much like a pastiche, but more as an act of reverence for the music of Bach which I have always found so life enhancing. 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. There follows 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. Towards the end the stern dotted rhythms of the opening of the work reappear before the mood lightens for an exuberant ending.

“In this piece I’ve also tried to follow a procedure of a certain flexibility of instrumentation which has been perhaps the hardest challenge. The two horn parts can be played on saxophones, the music of the second bassoon can be played on a bass clarinet and the oboe 2 part should also work on a clarinet.”
