Fun-damentals of Music (2004) for Woodwind Quintet with Audience Participation

MMB Music/

Randolph, Vt.: Walker Music Productions

Four Movements: Rhythm; Melody; Harmony; Form. Commissioned by the Equinox Chamber Players. May be performed with children or with general audiences.

According to the composer, “Each movement focuses on one basic component of music. According to the directions given by one of the members of the quintet, the audience will join the players by clapping (rhythms), humming (a melody), harmonizing (building chords) and raising hands, or perhaps standing up (!), (to identify formal sections and thematic recurrences).”

Encounters (2007)

Available from the composer’s website (see above) /

Maryland Heights, MO: Lauren Keiser Music,

According to the composer, “First Encounter” is an energetic greeting, or a first “hello.” The music is straightforward, as if walking up to one another for an introduction, with perhaps a slight dance approach. This leads to “Leisurely Encounter,” which is characterized by a relaxed tempo and blues style of playing. “Synchronized Encounter” is marked ‘very quickly’. The players need to be ‘in sync’ in order to navigate the mixed meters, with foot taps and other extra-musical events interspersed! “Familiar Encounter – a dance” comes at the end of the suite, when the players have become well acquainted. This movement allows the players to pair up for a series of dance interpretations of a well-known tune.

Off to the Races (2012)

Maryland Heights, Missouri: Lauren Keiser Music Publishing

Based on horse-related tunes: Stephen Foster’s ”Camptown Races,” the British folksong ”Stewball Was a Race Horse,” and ”The Home Stretch,” which is based on two familiar American Songs.

Woolfenden, Guy(1937-2016)

Serenade for Sophia for double woodwind quintet

Oxfordshire, England: Ariel Music, 2002

Movements: Intrada; Dance; Finale.

The composer writes: “Serenade for Sophia was written to celebrate the birth of the composer’s first grandchild, Sophia Isobel, in March 2001 and is dedicated to her with love. The work is scored for double wind quintet with no doublings, and begins with a short formal Intrada celebrating the happy event of Sophia’s arrival. The Dance is melodic and friendly music that hints at warmer climates, and taps into the rich culture of Sophia’s Jamaican friends and relations. The Finale plays on the juxtaposition of two contrasted moods: firstly a reflective, somewhat troubled idea, followed by a happy Allegretto passage; the reflective mood becomes more espressive and is treated canonically, the sun once again breaks through the clouds, and shines even more brightly in a joyous coda.”

Reflections, Serenade No. 2, for double woodwind quintet

Oxfordshire, England: Ariel Music, 2002

Movements: Allegro moderato; Andante espressivo in memoriam William Waterhouse; Andante con moto: Allegro subito.

The composer notes: “Shortly after I began work in earnest on Reflections, my second serenade for wind dectet, the great English bassoonist, William Waterhouse, died. We attended the same school (Whitgift in South Croydon), and I followed his remarkable career as he climbed to the top of the profession both as a performer and a teacher. He was loved by all for his wit, wisdom and scholarship.
“The second movement begins and ends with a bassoon solo in Bill’s memory. The outer movements which frame this ‘In memoriam’ are reflections on the witty, humorous side of Bill and my own memories of a happy childhood with musical parents – my father led a dance band and my mother was the daughter of a church organist and sang rather well.
“Reflections was commissioned by Simon Payne and the Oxford Sinfonia, to whom the work is dedicated with affection. The first performance took place at St Mary’s Church, High Street, Oxford on 26th April 2008.”

Prelude, in memoriam & Finale, sextet for woodwind quintet and bass clarinet

Oxfordshire, England: Ariel Music, 2002

Movements: Prelude; In Memoriam; Finale.

The composer shares: “This work was commissioned by English Serenata and received its first performance in May 1987. The sextet is dedicated to the memory of Howard Walker, clarinettist and founder member of English Serenata, following his tragic death in a car accident.”
