Go to https://bandestration.com/2016/06/10/compositions-for-sale/ and leave a message with some sort of contact info, or look him up on Facebook to contact. [Andrew Brandt]

The International Music Score Library Project has the downloadable score and parts available for those countries in which this is now in the public domain (Canada and most of Europe, but not in the U.S.) at: http://imslp.org/wiki/Wind_Quintet,_Op.43_(Nielsen,_Carl)

A notable recording of this work is available on YouTube by the Carion Quintet which performs it by memory (and some choreography) and joie de vivre, at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ow0sYQH-8HQ .

I’ve written an entire blog post specifically for this work, as part of our series of woodwind quintets of the Roaring Twenties. See The Ineffable Quality of Being Danish – Carl Nielsen’s Quintet.

What is fascinating is that this work was composed at about the same time as Schoenberg’s Quintet, Hindemith’s Kleine Kammermusik, Theodore Blumer’s Romantic-sounding Quintet, Op, 52, and just before Heitor Villa-Lobos started his quintet, and a few years before Ibert wrote his Trois Pièces Brèves. In those few years in the 1920s, the woodwind quintet matured into an ensemble suited for new music of all kinds and styles. See my blog post The Roaring Twenties Woodwind Quintet for much more info.

Quinteto de sopros, Op. 29 (1968)

Darmstadt, W. Germany: Tonos, 1977 /

Rio de Janeiro: Servico de Documentacao Musical da Ordem dos Musicos do Brasil

Movements: Lento-Animato; Lento; Vivo. Although written in 1968, the work’s first performance wasn’t until 1977, performed by the Quinteto de Sopros de Porto-Alegre, with Arno Armindo Matte, flute; Orpheu Tommasini, oboe; Hermes de Andrade, clarinet; Gunter Kramm, bassson and Juan Correa Barbieri, horn). Recorded by the Quinteto Villa-Lobos. (See http://marlosnobre.com.br/index.php/pt_br/home-2/7-catalogo/60-works-for-chamber-music-musica-de-camera )

Marlos Nobre works are serious, modern works (as opposed to arrangements of popular Brazilian tunes and styles). The first movement reflects 1970s Cold-War-era angst, but only with gentle dissonances and some flutter-tonguing. The pensive second movement pays some homage, perhaps, to the Brazilian Choro in its sad, singing beginning, but then transforms to something more sinister in the middle section. The third movement is brisk and mechanistic, with more pointed dissonances with a slow, sad soliloquy in the center that works back to the opening activity. In short, the work is an individual statement and not a proclamation of Brazilian nationalism or folk or popular music. The Quinteto Villa-Lobos recording of Marlos Nobre’s Quinteto de sôpros is available on Youtube in three files: first movement (Lento-Animato); second movement (Lento); and the third movement (Vivo). [Andrew Brandt]

Desafio XXVI, Op. 31 / No. 26 (1968/1984)
