Weait - Quadruplets for Any 4 Bass Clef Instruments (1'15)

First full score page to Weait - Quadruplets for Any 4 Bass Clef Instruments
SKU: [1203E]

There’s a longish story behind the title Quadruplets. It was originally entitled Couplets for four oboes, a transcription and higher transposition of earlier compositions of the same title for various double reed combinations. Couplets was invited by Yu-Hey Sze of the Hong Kong Kamerata as a demonstration piece for the oboe section of the Macau Youth Orchestra. When my wife, the logical one in our marriage, saw the score she said, “But it’s not for couples its for quadruplets”. Hence, the new title.

First score page of Weait - Couplets for 4 double reeds
SKU: 1203-pdf

A short work was composed for a group of high-school aged double reed players to rehearse with limited time and perform at a woodwind clinic. Rhythmically the parts use only quarter and eighth notes in cut time, but with a liberal scattering of rests within measures. The ranges are moderate for 2 oboes and 2 bassoons.

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

Page 6 of score to Weait - Chopsticks Variations for 4 double reeds.

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.
