Wind Quintet #1 (Score & Parts)-WW5
Composer: Ronnes, Kristian Oma
for flute, oboe, clarinet, horn, and bassoon
by Kristian Oma Ronnes (b. 1991)- Norwegian composer and bassoonist
This work is inspired by Albert Bierstadt's extraordinary "Yosemite Valley" paintings. The Quintet's opening should therefore not become too static, but rather should move forward and be interpreted with long lines. During its four movements, the quintet has an increasing intensity and development of tonality, which is also clearly affected by the tempos.
This work was written for the "Composer's Quintet" at the Norwegian Academy of Music, 2010-2011. It was premiered by the same quintet, with the musicians: Veronica Ski-Berg (flute), Elisa Metus (oboe), Nils Erik Maseidvag (clarinet), Niklas Sebastian Grenvik (horn), and Kristian Oma Ronnes (bassoon).
An optional part for clarinet in A is provided for the fourth movement.
