Weait - Quadruplets for Any 4 Bass Clef Instruments (1'15)

First full score page to Weait - Quadruplets for Any 4 Bass Clef Instruments
SKU: [1203E]

There’s a longish story behind the title Quadruplets. It was originally entitled Couplets for four oboes, a transcription and higher transposition of earlier compositions of the same title for various double reed combinations. Couplets was invited by Yu-Hey Sze of the Hong Kong Kamerata as a demonstration piece for the oboe section of the Macau Youth Orchestra. When my wife, the logical one in our marriage, saw the score she said, “But it’s not for couples its for quadruplets”. Hence, the new title.
