Brandt’s Woodwind Quintet List – I

Parodies (1974)

New York: C. Fischer, 1975

Duration: 8:30. Movements: Caprice; Cantilena; Intermezzo; Rag.

Parts of this work are based on sketches for a quartet from 1959, thus the title, used in the sense of a new interpretation, not caricature. See Arthur Cohn in “The Literature of Chamber Music” for more info.

Ibert, Jacques (1890-1962)

Trois Pièces Brèves (1930)

Paris: Alphonse Leduc, 1930

Duration: 7:20.

Ibert’s brilliant writing makes this THE standard quintet of all time, although it was originally written to accompany a comedy, “Le stratagème des roués.” I still like it but you can only play it so many times before madness sets in. Terrific for educational concerts. See my blog post Jacques Ibert, the Conservative Revolutionary in the Cracked Reed Blog for much, much more information about this piece. [Andrew Brandt]

The Little White Donkey (arr. Bill Holcombe)

West Trenton, NJ: Musicians Publications, 1998

Christmas in Picardy (Noël en Picardie, 1914) (arr. John Gibson)

JB Linier Music; see Boston, MA.: Ione Press

Originally for piano, the work was written to depict a short Christmas armistice during World War I. Ibert served in the Navy during the war. Mr. Gibson has also arranged this for several other combinations. The original piano score may be downloaded from the International Music Score Library Project: http://imslp.org/wiki/No%C3%ABl_en_Picardie_(Ibert,_Jacques)


Chanson du rien for woodwind quintet and “medium” voice (1930)

Paris: Alphonse Leduc

This is a brief, minute and a half, song written in 1930, from the incidental music for the comedy, “Le stratagème des roués” of 1930 (the same work that Trois Pièces Brèves came from). The original scoring was for woodwind quintet and voice. The text is by M. Constantin-Weyer. The only catalog listing for the quintet version I’ve seen is on http://www.musicsalesclassical.com/composer/work/3510/50803 . The voice and piano version is available on the International Music Score Library Project. The quintet version might be out of print.
