Available from the composer, http://www.martinq.com/

For flute, piccolo, oboe, English horn, clarinet in A, bass clarinet, 2 bassoons, 2 horns.

According to the composer, “The Basho Trilogy is inspired from texts by Matsuo Basho who lived in Japan during the 17th century and who is regarded as the master of haiku (or hokku), an epigrammatic Japanese verse form in 17 syllables. In the piece there are no written dynamics and very few phrase marks. It is the composer’s wish that the ensemble on its own works these parameters out, according to their own likings. The movements may be performed separately or together.”

Movements:
Basho 1 (Stand still! A dagger-thrust against the cliffs. Voices of the Cicadas) (3 min.)
Basho 2 (On a withered branch. A crow has stopped. Twilight in autumn) (3 min.)

A popular French Romantic quintet, the Suite is fairly easy – a good training piece for advanced student ensembles as well as professional. It is a good choice for a light, mostly cheerful, well-crafted, tuneful work that displays the ensemble well. If you are not already familiar with the work, there are a few interpretations available on YouTube, including a good one by the Toronto Woodwind Quintet. [Andrew Brandt]

Quintet No. 2, Op. 24 (1964)

New York: American Music Center

The composer writes that this work “…was written … just after I had been graduated from the High School of Music and Art (NYC) and before my first years at Juilliard.” He describes the work as “neo-classical.”

Quintet No. 3, Op. 33, (1965)

New York: Seesaw Music 1969 /

New York: American Music Center

Again, the composer: “Quintet #3, Opus 33, was written a year later, and is already light years ahead of the earlier work. …the 3rd is a serial composition falling somewhere between Webernian pointillism and Carterian chaos. At 9+ minutes, it is also about one third the length of the earlier work. It was one of the first pieces to be “published” by Seesaw. I prepared a revised version of it in the 1980’s (which Seesaw has). I still stand by it.”

Quintet No. 1 is not a woodwind quintet, but for flute and string quartet. [Andrew Brandt]

Very good short works for educational concerts, receptions, background music, and the like. Seventh movement works well with piccolo although it’s not scored that way. [Andrew Brandt]

Windjammer (2009)

Dedicated to the New Mexico Winds.

According to the composer’s website: Windjammer (2009) is a spiritually uplifting composition animated by the unique instrumental colors of the wind quintet, dialogue among the instruments, and rhythmic energy. The inspiration for the piece springs from two sources: the syncopated, improvisatory aura of jazz, and water imagery suggesting the light and movement of the sea.

Ligeti, György (1923-2006)

Sechs Bagatellen (Six Bagatelles) (1953)

Mainz: Schott, 1973: Hal Leonard (dist.), 2001,1973

Flute doubles on piccolo. Duration: 12:30.

One of the best twentieth century works for quintet; it’s a wonderful recital piece. Several movements actually work quite well for educational concerts for young students, too. These are virtuoso display pieces with a lot of musical depth. I’ve performed this several times, but the CARION quintet’s Youtube 2014 video at http://youtu.be/txMWXvD8kL4 is exceptionally well performed and staged. (Performed from memory, too.) [Andrew Brandt]

Jon Halvor Lund of the University of Hannover explains that these pieces are arranged from the 3rd, 5th, 7th, 8th, 9th and 10th movements of “Musica Ricercata,” written for piano. “Musica Ricercata” is written such that the first movement has only 2 pitches (in different octaves), the 2nd movement 3 pitches, the 3rd movement 4 notes, etc., until the 11th movement, which has all 12 notes of the octave. This means, the 1st movement of the Sechs Bagatelles has 4 notes only (C, E-flat;, E, G), etc.

Zehn Stücke (Ten Pieces) (1968)

Mainz: B. Schott’s Sohne, New York: Schott Music Corp., 1969

Flute doubles on also flute. Oboe doubles on English horn (and oboe d’amore if available). Duration: 15:00. See Youtube recording: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ysuddlMbW9U recorded by the Quintette à Vent Claude Debussy.

More difficult than the Six Bagatelles. The trio movement (flute, clarinet, and oboe) makes dramatically effective use of difference tones that’ll drive the audience (or the bassoonist) up the walls. Excellent work. These two Ligeti quintets should be studied by orchestration students as examples of great writing for winds. [Andrew Brandt]

Arthur Cohn in “The Literature of Chamber Music” reports that Ligeti called this one of his “tightrope pieces” due to its difficulty.

Bradfield, Berkshire, England: Rosewood Publications

Movements: Allegro; Menuett-Trio; Andante; Tempo Polacca. Some vendors refer to the wrong Lindner in their catalogs. There is also a Friedrich Lindner (1542-1597), but it is unlikely he wrote a woodwind quintet since the modern clarinet hadn’t yet been invented, and the bassoon just barely. The traditional reference books don’t list a Lindner of 1795-1846, but several online resources refer to him, including the OCLC WorldCat database.

A short music clip of the work clearly shows this to be an early 19th century work, similar to Danzi’s style. [Andrew Brandt]

Mandala I (1967)

York [England]: University of York Music Press, 2003, 1997

Other Mandelas (II-V) are for other instrumental combinations.
Duration: 15:00.

“Throughout Mandala 1 there is an entire absence of foreground pulse (beat) and meter. Shapes float across one another, reflect one another, sometimes collide with, and refract one another; isolated tones hang suspended in the air; no sooner do two or three instruments come together, but they ripple off into their own time field. This lack of regularity takes the music to the bounds of playability in terms of ensemble and gives it what may be, at first, a disconcerting character for the listener.” See also: http://www.australianmusiccentre.com.au/ and http://www.davidlumsdaine.org.uk/
