Weait - Reel and Hornpipe for woodwind quintet (3'45) PDF

SKU: 9811-pdf

Two dances, “Buckley’s Favorite Reel” and the “Saratoga Hornpipe” can be found in early 19th century collections of American dance music. The setting recalls the jubilant, foot-stomping, rhythmical drive of the country fiddlers, banjoists and washtub-bassists who played the music.

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

SKU: 1012-pdf

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.

One or more fanfares can be performed as encores, as concert openers, or as interludes between longer pieces. They don't have to be performed in numerical order.
