Canon in D (arr. Ray Thompson)

Published by the arranger; see Boston, MA.: Ione Press

The arranger states, “Arranged for wind quintet in the original key of D. Alternative Clarinet in Bb provided. I have attempted to give the wind players somewhere to breath, by dovetailing the melodies between all the instruments. The bass line is shared amongst horn, clarinet and bassoon.”

Canon in D (arr. Frank Halferty)

Kendor Music Inc.

Although Pachelbel’s famous Canon is a nice piece, the quintet world doesn’t really need five (or more) arrangements of it. Pachelbel also wrote a lot of other more substantial music that deserves to be known. (Granted, until this site, probably nobody knew there were so many versions.) Arrangers, please travel beyond the obvious, if you can. [Andrew Brandt]

Counterintuitive from a marketing perspective.

Peppercorn, Wayne Michael(1949- )

Suite for Double Wind Quintet

Movements: Allegro con brio; Scherzo and Respite; Andante Cantabile; Theme and Variations.

From the YouTube sound files it is clear that Peppercorn is playing homage to the 19th century harmoniemusik tradition. There is a somewhat odd-sounding realization of the work on YouTube, beginning at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GJUPV9_brIk. (It sounds like a better-than-average synthesized realization. Or an oddly recorded ensemble that never breaths and plays in perfect keyboard pitch.) [Andrew Brandt]

Percival, Richard (1953- )

The Sweet Suite: Five Confections for Wind Quintet (2011)

Australian Music Centre: http://www.australianmusiccentre.com.au/

According to the composer, “These short pieces for wind quintet are fun and humourous in character. Ranging from a miniature Scherzo through to a Rag to an extended set of Waltz Variations they cover a range of 20th century styles and influences. They are designed to be as much fun to play as to listen to and contain challenges both rhythmic and stylistic for the ensemble.”

I’ll let you decide for yourself. Or not. – AB)

In 1975, I was asked by the composer, graphic artist, film maker, and radio writer Bert Breit to do the music for a film about Tyrol which he was making with Otto Grenmandl. After the appearance of the LP “Half a Double Album” and the short film “Decline of the Alpine Country” I wanted to cencern myself with more positive aspects of our tradition and wrote variations on a slave song whose dialect text translates roughly as follows: “I don’t want to look after a cow. I don’t want to look after a pig. But I’d love to look after a horse. I could climb on. I could ride away. I could lead the life of a lord.”
In the early 1980s I set the little piece for wind quintet and composed three more brief movements, one of them in memory of Heinrich Heine. The first performance took place on October 22nd, 1984 in the Schubert Hall of Vienna’s Konzerthaus in the first concert of the series “die neue reihe”. Perhaps my father, who was a waggoner, would have liked the music. A picture of him appears on the cover of the score.

Naquele Tempo (arr. Airton Barbosa)

Duration: 3:44. Recorded by Quinteto Brasília.

Naquele Tempo by Pixinguinha with Benedito Lacerdo

It’s unclear whether Benedito Lacerdo was a co-composer or arranger of Naguele Tempo, but he’s listed in the Quinteto Villa-Lobos 1977 recording of this work. See our Cracked Reed Blog post on Quinteto Villa-Lobos for a link to an online recording. Duration: 4:00.

The work begins with “the tune” as a flute solo, then the oboe and clarinet do their own versions. Pixinguinha was noted for his Choros and his collaborations with Benedito Lacerda. Bassoon and horn play a Latin accompaniment. [Andrew Brandt]

Segura Ele (by Pixinguinha / Benedito Lacerda)

As with Naquele Tempo above, it’s unclear whether Lacerda is co-composer or an arranger of this work. Recorded in 1977 by Quinteto Villa-Lobos. Probably arranged specifically for them.

Features solos for flute, clarinet, and oboe. It’s a lively, rhythmically complex, busy, fun work. [Andrew Brandt].

For those who’ve not performed opera, Franz Lehár was the Viennese composer who wrote the still-performed operetta The Merry Widow (Die lustige Witwe, 1905). A merry black widow sounds more ominous, as if any tune written by Lehár could be said to be ominous. [Andrew Brandt]

Nicely done arrangement of the orchestra work. Great piece to show off the flute! [Andrew Brandt]

Peter and the Wolf, Op. 67 (arr. Ronald M. Krentzman)

R&M Music Publications, 100 Pettit Dr., South Meriden, CT 06540-4971

For woodwind quintet and narrator. Includes a large narrator’s score.

Peter and the Wolf, Op. 67 (with narrator) (arranged by Michael Curtis, 1998)

Ft. Collins: MSS Pub.

Duration: 12:00.

Orchestral musicians may be disappointed in the fact this arrangement is severely cut, with no music during the narrations. Other portions of the work are presented in minimalist fashion. In one case (after the wolf catches the duck) the orchestral accompaniment is reduced to a single quintet chord. However, if you need an abbreviated, easy version for school concerts where the narrator can’t rehearse the musical cues before the performance, this is it. [Andrew Brandt]

Peter and the Wolf, Op. 67 (arr. Trevor Cramer) for woodwind quintet and narrator

Tallevast, FL: TrevCo Music

This arrangement also has cuts, but not nearly as many as the Curtis arrangement listed above. Narrator does talk during some of the music (as in the original version). (A narrator’s part with short musical cues is supplied.) It is nicely arranged for the most part. (It’s impossible not to miss the 3 horns for the wolf or the timpani solo in any of these arrangements.) [Andrew Brandt]
