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.

Bach & Kellner - Prelude and Fugue in D Minor for flute, clarinet & bassoon (2'15)

SKU: [5709C]

Not the famous piece in D Minor! The Prelude is from 12 Little Preludes; the Fugue is from Miscellaneous Klavier Pieces. A good concert opener. The Prelude is Bach’s, the Fugue probably Kellner’s. Grade: Moderate.

This is the pre-printed, paper version of the work. A PDF digital download is also available.

Weait - Circus for oboe and bassoon (6'20)

First score page to Acrobats from Weait - Circus for oboe and bassoon.
SKU: [9111]

Three movement duet for oboe and bassoon. I. Acrobats (2’45) II. Lion Tamer (1’45) III. Clowns (1’50). Dedicated to the memory of the oboist and oboe maker Alfred Laubin. Mr. Laubin, was a member of the first professional wind quintet I played in. I remember him as a very thin, quiet and dignified man. He is in no way personified by the music in the work!

Quotes from a review by Daniel Lipori in ‘The Double Reed’, Vol 33/3, p.111.
“. . . you can imagine the acrobats up in the air during their performance.”
“It sounds very cautious, as if the lion tamer does not want to upset the animal.”
