Weait - Chopsticks Variations for double reed quartet (3'40)

Page 6 of score to Weait - Chopsticks Variations for 4 double reeds.
SKU: [9113]

Chopsticks Varations is an hilarious setting of the famous piece for 2 oboes (or oboe & oboe d'amore), English horn and bassoon. It makes an excellent concert encore - especially if you've gone overboard with the "serious" stuff - and it is a proven hit at children's and senior citizen's programs. Parts are provided for all instruments and the score shows all instruments. This arrangement was originally published by BOCAL MUSIC as their BMC-121 Fantasy Variations on Chopsticks. We have revised it slightly and are publishing a new full score and parts.

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

First score page to Weait - Four Fanfares for woodwind quintet.

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.
