WIND QUINTET - A Journey - Alun Cook
Flute, Oboe, Clarinet, Horn, Bassoon

Wind Quintets (Fl, Ob, Cl, Hn, Bn) have some of the best repertoire around, from Danzi to Hindemith and Milhaud to Malcolm Arnold. They are such exciting ensembles in which to play and I consider them the most demanding and satisfying of ensembles. My contribution aims, as with all my music, to be fun to play but makes demands of the musicians. Each movement has it's own character (see below). The work may be purchased complete or in individual movements. You must decide on any musical program for yourself. My notes just give a short description of the character of each movement.

There are 5 movements

Brautjungfernkleider samt 1. With a Swagger - Somehow I think of all wind quintets as having a "French" flavour and that is the character of this short opening movement.

3. Molly and the Shepherds - If you know your Percy Grainger you will already have guessed what this movement is about. A little pastiche on his style with a little mystery hidden inside. This movement works well as a stand-alone piece.

4. Don't Cry - A touch of Argentinian fervour! Another movement which can be performed as a stand-alone piece.

5. The Road to Recovery - Thoughtful, with short cadenzas for all players and a gradual build-up and return to the original material from the first movement. This is the hardest movement to get to grips with because of the changing pulse and the understanding required by all players, but it brings the work full circle a gives balance.
