Woodwind Quintet (Score & Parts)-WW5
Composer: Reynolds, Verne
Publisher: Prairie Dawg Press (Bruce Gbur)
by Verne Reynolds (b. 1926)
The Woodwind Quintet was composed in 1964 during Reynolds' fifth year at the Eastman School of Music. The work is cast in a traditional four-movement structure, the third of which is in ternary form. The final movement shows an interest in jazz rhythms, particularly syncopation. The overall harmonic language of this piece is fairly conservative, as befits its early date of composition, and is more tonally-oriented than Reynolds' later compositions. Edited by Bruce Gbur.
