The Parks of Lincoln

Louisville, KY: Potenza Music Publishing, 2012

The composer writes: “The capitol city of Lincoln, Nebraska is full of beautiful parks of various shapes and functions, most of which are connected through a series of elaborate bicycle paths. The Parks of Lincoln is a reaction to five of these parks, each very different in aesthetic and appeal. From the windy shores at Holmes Lake Park through the activity-filled playgrounds of Antelope Park (and making a few other stops along the way) to finally end in the expansive rolling prairies of Pioneers Park.”

Arthur Cohn in “The Literature of Chamber Music” describes this as “Czech Romantic” music. “…but its sheer romantic prose does not date the music and thereby destroy it.

Freeing the Caged Bird

Vivace Press

The composer: “Freeing the Caged Bird is a four-movement tribute inspired by the literary works of four native St. Louis women…. The first movement is based on the book I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings, by Maya Angelou, who is regarded as one of the great voices of contemporary literature. Inspired by Sara Teasdale’s poem “Sunset St. Louis” the second movement evokes the swirling, twilight imagery of her poem. The third movement represents Kate Chopin’s then notorious novel The Awakening, first published in 1899. The last movement, based on Emily Hahn’s book, Hong Kong Holiday, expresses the joie de vivre of a woman who refused to accept society’s dictums.”

A very difficult, rhythmically complex work. It has attained some popularity in professional American woodwind quintets. The bassoon part has quite a few high E’s and other finger twisters. Other parts are similarly challenging. Parts have many note errors in them to clean up, too. Allow lots of rehearsal time! [Andrew Brandt]

The original works were for two solo lira organizzati with clarinets, strings and horns. These arrangements are for double woodwind quintet.

Duration: 2:00.

Serenade [from String Quartet Op. 3, No. 5.] (arr. William Scribner)

Richmond, Virginia: International Opus

Duration: 3:00.

It’s considered a spurious work, probably by Roman Hoffstetter under which name it’s cross-referenced, but it’s a woodwind quintet arrangement, so we’re not being entirely “pure” about presenting the work authentically, anyway. [Andrew Brandt]

Quartet No. 18 [Op. 17, No. 1 ] (arr. Ryohei Nakagawa)

[String Quartet] Opus 20, No. 4 in D (Major) (arr. Geoffrey Emerson)

Yorkshire: The Red Hedgehog (45 Falsgrave Rd., Scarborough, Yorkshire, England) or gwemerson[at]argonet.co.uk

“Serenade” from String Quartet No. 68 (?) (arr. Tony Turrill)

Norvik Sheet Music, http://www.norviksheetmusic.co.uk/

The provenance of this arrangement is questionable, since String Quartet 68 (one of Haydn’s last works, incomplete) appears to be spurious, particularly since the actual quartet doesn’t appear to have a section entitled “Serenade.” The publisher’s (rambling) program notes don’t help. However, a 35-second excerpt on the site reminds me of another piece, which an actual quartet player might be able to recognize immediately.

[String Quartet] Opus 71, No. 1 in B-flat Major (arr. Geoffrey Emerson)

Yorkshire: The Red Hedgehog (45 Falsgrave Rd., Scarborough, Yorkshire, England) or gwemerson[at]argonet.co.uk

[String Quartet] Opus 76, No. 5 in D Major (arr. Geoffrey Emerson)

Yorkshire: The Red Hedgehog (45 Falsgrave Rd., Scarborough, Yorkshire, England) or gwemerson[at]argonet.co.uk

Serenade from String Quartet, Op. 68 [sic.] (arr. Turrill)

Norvik? (June Emerson)

There IS NO string quartet, Op. 68, but perhaps this is String Quartet No. 68 from Op. 103, Haydn’s last quartet, which was incomplete.

(End of Haydn String Quartet arrangements)

Quintet from Piano Trio in A Major (arr. ?)

London: Boosey & Hawkes

Haydn wrote 3 Piano Trios in A Major. Don’t know which one this is. There are similar problems with attributing many of the other arrangements for the Piano Trios below, too.

Haydn Symphony arrangements (excerpts)

“Allegretto” (2nd movement) from Symphony, No. 11 (arr. G. E. Holmes)

Oskaloosa, Iowa: C.L. Barnhouse, 1935

Inexplicably, the 2nd movement Allegretto arranged here is not from “Symphony No. 11” but, clearly, from Symphony No. 100, the “Military Symphony.” It’s the 8th of the London Symphonies (not the 11th). The actual Haydn Symphony No. 11 has no Allegretto. To make things even more bizarre, some catalogs have confused 11 with Roman numeral II and listed this as being from “Symphony No. 2.” [Andrew Brandt]

“Minuet” from Haydn Symphony No. 11 (arr. G. E. Holmes)

Oskaloosa, Iowa: C.L. Barnhouse, Inc., 1938

Clog Dance from La Fille Mal Gardée (arr. Sylvia Fairley) for double woodwind quintet

Suffolk, UK: Deben Music, 1996, www.debenmusic.co.uk.

Second horn must also play woodblock. Duration: 3:40.

The ballet, La Fille Mal Gardée, has a long history of performances with various scores ranging from a pastiche of folk tunes to different scores by several composers, including Ferdinand Hérald’s 1828 adaptation of another score of 1789. John Lanchbery (1923-2003) later re-orchestrated the work, including new music for the “Clog Dance.” That may be the basis of this arrangement. So it may be more the music of Lanchberry than Hérald. Wikipedia has a long article on the convoluted history of this ballet. [Andrew Brandt]

Pastel & Oil (1997)

Grosvenor Place, N.S.W.: Australian Music Centre, 1999

See also: www.wendyhiscocks.com , also: http://www.australianmusiccentre.com.au/ Duration: 10:00. Uses Clarinet in A. Movements: Morning song; Scherzo; Nocturne; Waltz.

According to the composer, Pastel & Oil takes inspiration from four paintings. ‘Morning Song’ relates to The Sunlit Tower by Australian artist Lloyd Rees, ‘Scherzo’ and ‘Nocturne’ to Nicotiana and Jack-in-the-Pulpit, paintings of flowers by American artist Georgia O’Keeffe. In ‘Nocturne’ the flower’s black petal and oriental-like white stamen are reflected by the oboe and bassoon duet in the piece’s middle section, with a sense of richness and dark mystery. ‘Waltz’ follows an untitled pastel by Cheryl Stoll Thygeson, depicting a celestial form in the shape of an S-like spiral. This radiant being dances to a gentle, easy waltz with some rhythmic play between twos and threes. … “One of my main aims in this suite was to give prominence to all five instruments, and in particular to bring out the melodic and expressive character of the horn and bassoon, often the cinderellas of woodwind ensembles.”

Although the composer doesn’t state it, the title comes from a real textbook for mariners. The book’s appearance on Amazon.com, however, led to a series of hilarious mock reviews which became a web legend. The quintet composition, from a quick listening, appears to be quite serious, though, and a very attractive if difficult work. Appropriate for a professional-level quintet. [Andrew Brandt]

The Dialect of Lunatic Hurricanes (2014)

For alto flute doubling piccolo, English horn, bass clarinet, horn and bassoon. Commissioned by the Britten Sinfonia for their Opus2014 Competition.

The title appears to be based on a poem, “Dialect of Hurricanes”. A translation is available on the Poetry Translation Centre. It seems the composer enjoys obscure literary references in his titles. [Andrew Brandt]

Duration: 16:00. Movements: Allegro moderato; Adagio; Minuet (in canon) and trio; Air and variations. Although an early work, it was apparently not performed until 1982.

Although I have not performed this work, various reports of people who have read through the work expecting something along the lines of Holst’s Suites for band or The Planets have voiced their disappointment. Marsha Schweitzer, who is one of the few bassoonists I know who has performed this work several times, says: “It is introspective, and takes a while to grow on you. It helps if you make the most of the sudden mood changes in the slow movement — think opera, in particular, Puccini. The strength of the piece is its operatic use of the woodwind tone colors, as demonstrated at the end with a diminuendo to a stunning (if it’s in tune) sequence of A♭ major chords with the bassoon as the lowest, then the highest, and then, while still in the upper register, again the lowest, voice.” [Andrew Brandt]

Flamingo Mozambique (1996, rev. 2000)

see http://www.erichonour.com/ . Duration: 6:30.

The composer supplied me with the following info on this work:
“‘Flamingo Mozambique’ derives its title from its use of the mozambique rhythm, which consists of 3 beats plus 3 beats plus 2 beats repeated over and over again. In the case of this work, this pattern is fragmented and presented in a variety of forms. The piece retains the drive and swing of Mozambique-based jazz while using a modern approach to harmonic language and structure. The music closes with a comical tribute to the traditional ending for a jazz tune in this style. This piece was composed in 1996 and premiered that year by a graduate woodwind quintet at
Northwestern University.”

Fantasia on a theme of Couperin (1958) for flute, oboe, English horn, 2 clarinets, 2 bassoons, 2 horns

Novello & Co.

According to the composer, “The origin of this work was a commission by the London Wind Society in 1958 to compose a wind octet consisting of flute, oboe, and pairs of clarinets, horns and bassoons. In 1962 I revised this substantially to produce a new version for eleven solo strings…. This latest reworking adds a cor anglais to my original octet, and includes several metric and harmonic alterations of both previous versions. The theme is taken from the chromatic rising bass of Couperin’s famous keyboard ‘passacaille’ in B minor. It is quoted in the middle section of my Fantasia, in its original harmonisation. My own opening theme undersoes a gradual change towards this central point; then Couperin’s theme is developed and eventually brought back to a recapitulation of the opening statement.” [From An Annotated Guide to Wind Chamber Music by Rodney Winther.]
