Holloway - The Celebrated Wood-Up Quick Step (1834) for woodwind quintet (1'25)

SKU: [0901]

John Holloway's "Wood-Up quick Step" was so popular in it's day that it became the test piece for a famous competition between Ned Kendall, playing the keyed bugle and ..... playing the cornet. In this setting for woodwind quintet, the flute, oboe and clarinet get to show off their virtuosity. Hence, those parts are technically demanding.

Weait - Venice Variations for five woodwinds (fl, ob, cl, asx, bn) (4'10)

SKU: [1205A]

We needed a piece to demonstrate all of the woodwinds. Something with a little solo for each player - so, I chose the venerable and much arranged "Carnival of Venice" as being relatively familiar to listeners and fun to play for the musicians. Dedicated to my woodwind colleagues at the Capital University Conservatory of Music.

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.
