Weait - Birthday Flourish for 6 winds (à6) (1'40) PDF

SKU: 8003B-pdf

I made this transcription of the Birthday Flourish (à14) for my 75th birthday celebration. It calls for 2 clarinets, 2 bassoons and 2 horns. Careful study of the score will expose a Schoenbergian penchant for retrograditude in the quarter-note interludes.

This is the downloadable version of the work. There is no pre-printed, paper version.

Weait - Fragments for wind octet (3'50) PDF

First score page of Weait Fragments for wind octet.
SKU: 9223-pdf

Fragments for wind octet was composed beginning in 1992 and worked on sporadically until 2010. It uses a compositional technique as if themes placed on a bulletin board are moved around for each instrument. The motives recall the traditional figures played when harmonies – ensembles of pairs of woodwinds and horns - were in vogue: leaping clarinet arpeggios, bouncy bassoon bass lines, sprightly rhythms and lyrical oboe melodies. The horns, however, play a corrupted version of ‘horn fifths’ throughout without sharing it.
