Paul Valjean’s artistic career is a rare combination of bassoonist, dancer and choreographer.

This work was originally distributed through multiple generations of photocopies. It’s nice to see it finally published. [Andrew Brandt]

Van Parys, Annelies(1975- )

Meditation (2005) for double woodwind quintet

Commissioned by I Solisti del Vento (in Antwerp?). Duration: 7:15. A recording is available online at: https://soundcloud.com/anneliesvanparys/meditation-for-double-wind

As the title suggests, this is a meditative work. Listening to the online recording, it explores highly complex harmonies and harmonics, made possible with microtones, tone bends, a few multiphonics, flutter-tonguing and more. It appears the bell-like clangs are created by the complex harmonies (although I wonder if somebody slipped in a gong for the first note). There’s no melody, just the ever-changing sound textures. You will either be fascinated or freaked out by this piece. It would take an advanced modern music ensemble to do Van Parys’s work justice in performance. [Andrew Brandt]

Technically, its for flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon and English horn, not French horn, but is often performed with (an adventurous) French hornist. It’s one of my favorite pieces for the quintet. Challenging for all the players. We called the final chord a “primal scream.” See my blog post about this work plus a list of other Villa-Lobos works for winds in our Cracked Reed Blog as part of our series on Roaring 20s Quintets.

Choro Negro(arr.? by Fernando Costa)

Recorded in 1977 by Quinteto Villa-Lobos and probably arranged specifically for them. It’s unclear whether Fernando Costa arranged the work or had some other part in its composition.

This is a slow, pensive tune (a slow Choro) with some lovely melodies. The arrangement begins with a slower oboe solo followed by clarinet and flute solos. It brings out the “crying” nature of the Choro, which is part of the name. I think this could make a nice recital piece or part of a set of Brazilian compositions. See our Cracked Reed Blog post about Quinteto Villa-Lobos for a link to their recording. [Andrew Brandt]

arrangements

Two Pieces for Children’s Concerts:

1: Chiapanecas “The Mexican Clapping Song”

2: Variations on “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star”

San Diego, CA: Neil A. Kjos Music, 1985

These two light works are published together. Chiapanecas is particularly good for educational concerts for elementary kids – especially if you try to teach them when to clap and when not to. The Twinkle variations are each designed to display one of the members of the quintet for school concerts. The suggested narration is a bit sappy but the music is interesting. [Andrew Brandt]
