Weait - Fragments for wind octet (3'50)

First score page of Weait Fragments for wind octet.
SKU: [9223]

Fragments for wind octet was composed beginning in 1992 and worked on sporadically until 2010. It uses a compositional technique as if themes placed on a bulletin board are moved around for each instrument. The motives recall the traditional figures played when harmonies – ensembles of pairs of woodwinds and horns - were in vogue: leaping clarinet arpeggios, bouncy bassoon bass lines, sprightly rhythms and lyrical oboe melodies. The horns, however, play a corrupted version of ‘horn fifths’ throughout without sharing it.

Bach, J.S. - Coachman's Song and Posthorn Fugue for wind quintet (3'40)

Page 1 of full score. Bach's "Coachman's Song"
SKU: [6009D,E]

In 1704 Johann Sebastian Bach composed the programmatic keyboard Capriccio in B-flat 'sopra la lontanezza del suo fratello dilettissimo' ('on the departure of a beloved brother'). It is quite unusual among his works for its detailed titling of six movements commemorating his brother's departure by coach. The last two movement, 'Aria di postiglione' (Coachman's Song) and 'Fuga all' imitazione della cornetta di postiglione' (Posthorn Fugue) are transcribed for woodwind quintet.
