Phases for woodwind quintet (2007)

King Of Prussia: Theodore Presser, 2013.

In 5 movements or “phases.” Duration: 17:00.

According to notes: “The work is divided into five movements, or ‘phases’. Much of Phase 1 is jazzy and polytonal – its counterpart is the fourth movement, Phase 1a, which utilizes the same themes and harmonies, but is slow and romantic. Phase 2 is a gentle intermezzo, while the final movement, Phase 2a, is very fast and energetic, both movements representing different phases of the same material. The middle movement, Phase 3, stands by itself as a noisy and aggressive pantonal fanfare….”

arrangements

Le Tombeau de Couperin (piano version, 1914-1917, orchestra version, 1919) (arr. Mason Jones)

Paris: Durand, 1970 (USA: Theodore Presser)

Excellent arrangement of 4 of the 6 original piano pieces, done by the former principal horn of the Philadelphia Orchestra. Second movement is the “Fugue” omitted from the orchestra version. Others will be familiar to orchestra musicians and audiences. Oboe part to the Prelude is great for practicing for auditions. I think its one of the finest arrangements ever made for woodwind quintet. We’ve done the entire work for formal recitals and excerpts for educational concerts. Pairs well with the Debussy Suite No. 2 (arranged by Gordon Davies), see Claude Debussy. [Andrew Brandt]

Le Tombeau de Couperin (arr. Hans Abrahamsen)

Copenhagen: Wilhelm Hansen, 1989. Duration 17:00.

Le Tombeau de Couperin (arr. Gunther Schuller)

Newton Centre, Mass.: Margun Music, 1995

Duration: 24:00.

Includes all six of the original piano pieces. Schuller reportedly keeps faithful to the Ravel orchestration when possible. The work was arranged in the mid-1940s for the Metropolitan Wind Quintet, but not published until the 1990s. This arrangement reportedly has more doubling of the parts and is more technically difficult than the Mason Jones arrangement. [Andrew Brandt]

Le Tombeau de Couperin (arr. David Walter)

Available from the arranger.

Le Tombeau de Couperin (arr. Wolfgang Renz)

Duration: 22:00. Website / Contact Wolfgang Renz: http://wolfgang-renz-notendruck.de/ . Herr Renz also has a version for flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon, horn, violin, viola, cello and double bass.

Le Tombeau de Couperin arranged for woodwind quintet and harp

I only know of this work from a recording of the first movement available on Zephyros Winds’ website. No mention is made of the arranger or of which other movements are available. From a quick listening, it appears that the harp part is taken largely from the orchestra version. (I would have like to have seen it expanded for more interplay with the ensemble.)

Mother Goose Suite (Ma Mère l’Oye), Parts 1, 2, & 3 (arr. Bill Holcombe)

Chesapeake, VA: Bill Holcombe’s Musicians Pub’s http://billholcombe.com/

Sold in 3 separate volumes:

Vol. 1 – The Beauty Sleeping in the Wood and Tom Thumb.

Vol. 2 – Laideronnette and Empress of the Pagodas;

Vol. 3 – Conversations of Beauty and the Beast and The Fairy Garden.

The “Conversations of Beauty and the Beast” (“Les entretiens de la Belle et de la Bête”) in the orchestra version of the Mother Goose Suite features a famous dialogue between the principal violinist and the contrabassoonist. Even if the arrangements don’t call for it, a performance would be enhanced if the bassoonist is comfortable doubling on contrabassoon for that movement. [Andrew Brandt]

Mother Goose Suite (Ma Mère L’Oye, 1911) (arr. Frank Morelli)

Rechtman, Mordechai (1926- )
Arrangements

Baroque Suite for Wind Quintet, arrangements of works by Johann Sebastian Bach, François Couperin, Jean Baptiste Loeillet, Jean-Philippe Rameau and Jean Baptiste Senaille)

Holzkirchen, Germany: Accolade Musikverlag

A compiled “French Suite” including:

Rondeau (from “Les Moissonneurs”) by François Couperin

Gigue by Jean Baptiste Loeillet

Praludium, BWV 902 by Johann Sebastian Bach

Minuet I and II by Jean-Philippe Rameau

Allegro spirituoso by Jean Baptiste Senaille.

Reviewer Ron Klimko calls this collection “a refreshing, new Baroque work that sparkles brilliantly and would make a wonderful opening composition for a quintet recital.”

Mordechai Rechtman is the retired principal bassoonist of the Israel Philharmonic and well known internationally for his teaching and playing. (He was also one of my teachers!) He is a perfectionist in everything that he does musically. (Reportedly he’s also an excellent chess player!) — All reviews of his arrangements have given them high praise. Many of his arrangements are scattered around this list under various composers. I’d recommend, in particular, looking at Rechtman’s arrangements of works by Johann Sebastian Bach and Wolfgang Mozart. [Andrew Brandt]

Reicha, Anton (also variously spelled Antoine, Antonín, Rejcha)(1770-1836)

Reicha wrote 24 quintets found in Op. 88, 91, 99, 100, the largest number of multi-movement woodwind quintets written by any composer. He was friends with Beethoven and studied with Haydn and Salieri, among others. He played flute, violin and piano, but gave up performance to compose, writing all 24 quintets in a rather short period of about 10-12 years. Peter Eliot Stone in the New Grove’s states, “Reicha’s wind quintets show his refined sense of instrumental colour and have served as models of their genre.” Reicha was appointed professor of counterpoint and fugue at the Paris Conservatoire in 1818 (where 8 of his students were already on the faculty!), and became one of the leading musical theorists and teachers of his day. His students include Habaneck, Rode, Berlioz, Liszt, Gounod, Onslow and Franck. For more background on these quintets, and a novel method of dividing them into stylistic categories, see Charles-David Lehrer’s article in THE DOUBLE REED, Vol. 25, No. 2 (summer 2002) or check the IDRS website. This same issue also has a complete discography for all the quintets. Since there are so many editions, and new ones keep coming out, please contact us about new editions (and recordings) so we can list them. [Andrew Brandt]

All 24 quintets are photographed on microfilm by Andover, Mass.: Northeast Document Conservation Center, 1991. microfilm reel. They are also available at the Library of Congress in Washington, DC.

Parts for all 24 quintets are also now available as PDFs from the Canadian-based International Music Score Library Project at http://imslp.org/index.php?title=Category:Reicha,_Aton

Charles-David Lehrer has issued the complete set of Reicha quintets for download at the International Double Reed Society website:

Barbera Secrist-Schmedes, in Wind Chamber Music, explains, “The virtuosity of the oboe part is established immediately in the opening Allegro. The horn is an equal part in all of Reicha’s quintets and is given some incredibly difficult melodic material in this work….”

Barbera Secrist-Schmedes, in Wind Chamber Music, explains that this work has an unusual “abundance of melodic material, much of which has a distinct folk flavor.” The end propels the oboe “into a last virtuoso somersault.”

Movements and durations: Larghetto-Allegro (Duration: 12:00); Andante (6:40); Menuetto (5:00); Allegro poco vivace (11:00).

I performed this work with the Shreveport Symphony Woodwind Quintet and found it to be a thoroughly charming work and a good challenge for all the players. The flute has some particularly virtuosic displays, the clarinet almost as many but (as usual) the oboe has some of the best solos. Very classical in form, the work does show some of the harmonic experimentation of the very early 19th century, with the perfect contrapuntal technique Reicha was known for. I highly recommend this work for the quintet willing to put the necessary rehearsal time into it. The Musica Rara edition does have several note errors which need to be ferreted out. The editor, Franz Vester, makes many useful suggestions (given in parentheses) but some can be altered, depending on taste and technique. [Andrew Brandt]

Parthia in F Major for double woodwind quintet

Amsterdam: Edition Compusic /

Oettingen-Wallerstein’sche Hofbibliothek, Ms 570

Movements: I. Allegro; II. Andante; III. Menuet; IV. Rondo.

Program note fodder: Joseph Reicha (or Rejcha) was uncle to Anton Reicha and helped raise and teach Anton. Joseph eventually got a job conducting the court orchestra in Bonn. He brought young Anton with him to play violin and flute in the Bonn orchestra. There Anton befriended a young violist, born the same year (1770), who also played in the orchestra. The violist’s name was Ludwig van Beethoven and the two were friends for the rest of Beethoven’s life.
It would be interesting to research the lives of Joseph and Anton Reicha to see whether the younger composer got the idea for writing woodwind quintets based on a smaller version of his uncle’s dectets for double winds. [Andrew Brandt]

Sextett (in B-flat Major), Op. 271 (1904) for woodwind quintet plus second horn.

Leipzig: Jul. Heinr. Zimmermann

Edition Compusic

3 movements: I. Allegro moderato; II. Adagio molto – Vivace ma non troppo; III. Finale: Allegro moderato ma con spirito – Molto più allegro, quasi doppio movemento. The score (without parts) is available for free download from the International Music Score Library Project, at http://imslp.org/wiki/Wind_Sextet,_Op.271_(Reinecke,_Carl) . A recording of the full work by Soni Ventorum is also available on the IMSLP site.

A listen to the Soni Ventorum recording along with the score shows this to be a wonderful, late Romantic work which should challenge the players with its rhythmic diversity and changing tempos. Solos for the flute, clarinet and oboe, in particular, offer both technical and musical challenges. The second horn adds harmonic depth to the ensemble without overshadowing the woodwinds. If you feel the dearth of challenging late Romantic works for quintet, it should be worthwhile to find the parts, drum up an extra horn player, and invest considerable rehearsal time to perform this work.

Reizenstein, Franz (Theodor) (1911-1968)

Quintet, Op. 5 (1935)

London: Boosey & Hawkes, 1937 (possibly rental only) /

Belwin

Duration: 15:00. Movements: 1. Andante con moto; 2. Molto vivace; 3. Intermezzo; 4. Allegro moderato. The first performance was by the London Wind Quintet, on BBC.

Arthur Cohn, The Literature of Chamber Music, says, “The music is fresh, natural, and stylistically unified in a neoclassical (Hindemithian) sense… not a segment of banality and never a striving for effect.”

If you ever wished that Paul Hindemith had written a second woodwind quintet, here it is. A student of Hindemith, the German-born Reizenstein completed this work just after fleeing to Great Britain to escape the rise of the NAZIs. You don’t hear any of that stress in this work, which, to my ear, sounds sunnier than the Kleine Kammermusik of his teacher. This work deserves to be much better known than it has been.
If you are as unfamiliar with Reizenstein’s Quintet as I was, you will enjoy the 2003 recording of this work available on YouTube by the Frankfurt-based Ensemble Modern. Each movement is posted separately, starting with https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LHwxwUO0ku4 . Although Reizenstein later went on to study with Ralph Vaughan Williams, his Quintet shows a young composer threading his path from traditional Germanic Romantic style, Viennese 12-tone music and his mentor’s neo-classicism in a very turbulent decade for music and the world.

Solo and orchestra parts (but not the score) for the Konzertstück are available for download from the International Music Score Library Project. The composer also created a piano reduction, so it is sometimes listed as a Sextet. (When in the work’s page on the IMSLP, click on the “Arrangements and Transcriptions” tab to download the piano reduction.) Three movements. Apparently, the orchestra parts were lost for a while, so a reconstruction of the orchestra was created in 1997 from the piano score, available from Bärenreiter-Alkor. So there are two orchestra versions. (Make sure you know which one you are using.)
