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

First score page to Weait - COUNT! Dracula fro 4 bassoons.
SKU: [1212]

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 pre-printed, paper version of the work. A PDF digital download is also available.

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.
