Later, I set it for 12 woodwinds as 'The Merry Raftsmen' [7905] and for woodwind quintet 'The Jolly Raftsmen' [9513].

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.
