An original printing, under the enigmatic Opus 104c, was made in 1890 in Boston by A. P. Schmidt. Some libraries are likely to still hold this edition, but it’s not listed in the WorldCat.org. (See Catherine Gerhart’s Annotated Bibliography of Double Wind Quintet Music.)

According to the preface by Jan Joris Nieuwenhuis “this piece has charming melodies and daring instrumentation with a natural feeling for wind instruments. The final movement, the bolera, is particularly noteworthy.” Jadassohn was a composition teacher at the Leipzip Conservatory for many years. His many students included Edvard Grieg, Frederick Delius and Ferruccio Busoni.

Jager, Robert E. (1939- )

Mumblety-Peg (Children’s Games) (1994)

Cleveland: Ludwig Music 1995


From liner notes from the Cumberland Quintet’s recording: “Each movement is a musical description relating to everyday children’s games. Fresh sounding as well as intellectual, they employ many different compositional techniques such as minimalism, an actual ‘tag,’ and a Scottish snap. The last movement, ‘Musical Chairs,’ provides theatrical possibilities as the players leave the stage one by one. Finally, the bassoonist is left alone to play a ‘victory’ cadenza. The other players sneak up and startle him out of his musings with the final chord.” See also: http://rjager.com/

Davyd Breeskin shares that “‘Lettish’ (which invites awful puns about salads) is equivalent to ‘Latvian’. …Hornist must be comfortable with bass clef (sounding a 5th lower). Not otherwise difficult except for the (lengthy) finale, in 5/8 time. The tambourine appears only in the 2nd and 5th movements, in the 2nd movement, the oboist is to play it, but in the 5th movement, a separate player is (apparently) required.”

Cincinnati, A. J. Andraud, 1948 /

San Antonio: Southern Music Co. /

If the above versions are out of print, there is also a copy in the library of CeBeDeM. Duration: 15:00. 1 movement of 3 sections plus a postlude reprising some of the themes. Composer is brother of Leon Jongen. Although the title is “Concerto,” it appears to be written for the normal woodwind quintet (flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon and horn).

Arthur Cohn in “The Literature of Chamber Music” says: “A touch of Debussy color wash is used in some places, otherwise Franckian orientation applies.”
