Weait - COUNT! Dracula for 4 bassoons (2'40) PDF

First score page to Weait - COUNT! Dracula for 4 bassoons.
SKU: 1212-pdf

Composed to provide some practice in reading and playing sub-metrical rhythms: including 8ths, 16ths, triplet 8ths and a few triplet quarter notes. All rhythms appear on the beat and in syncopated form. The four parts swap soprano, alto, tenor and bass roles. The ranges are from low B-flat (B flat 2) to F above middle C (F4). The music follows a 16 measure blues progression throughout. Far from being a dull study piece, it presents a lively, "hot" result.

This is the downloadable version of the work. A pre-printed, paper version is also available.

Weait - Fanfare for Arthur Fackenpohl (0'39)

Performing score for Weait - Fanfare for Arthur Frackenpohl for 4 trumpets
SKU: [1402]

I've re-titled the canonic fanfare to honor my college harmony teacher and distinguished American composer Arthur Frackenpohl on his 90th birthday in 2014. On receiving the score Dr. Frackenpohl, ever the wonderful teacher, reminded me that the piece was not a strict canon! The piece can be played on B-flat or C trumpets. The music is the same - unchanged from the original and now superseded title!

A PDF version is available at SKU [1402-pdf].

Weait - Four Fanfares for woodwind quintet (Total duration 2'10) PDF

SKU: 1012-pdf

These fanfares were composed at different times for different ensembles. Fanfares 1 and 2 were written for OBOHIO to begin concerts by that double reed quartet. We played them offstage before entering. Tavern Fanfare was written for a wind octet to play a concert at, you guessed it, a tavern! The Seven Eight Fanfare was composed in 1998 for no particular ensemble or event.

One or more fanfares can be performed as encores, as concert openers, or as interludes between longer pieces. They don't have to be performed in numerical order.
