Composed for the now delveloping reed quintet consisting of oboe, clarinet, bass clarinet, alto saxophone and bassoon. Three movements allow this effective ensemble to shine. The music is moderately difficult.
1. Iowa Prelude (0'25) An introductory fanfare, perhaps for the Iowa State Fair. It was originally composed in Iowa for the double-reed quartet OBOHIO.
2. Postcard: Manhattan Broadway, 1947 (2'26) Inspired by a color postcard showing Broadway in heavy traffic with buses, colorful signs and bustling sidewalks
3. Amusement Park (A Monochrome Postcard) (2'32). The vertical and horizontal movement of the amusements is reflected by the instruments' rhythmic activity.
