Woodwind Quintet (1948)
for flute, oboe, clarinet, horn, and bassoon
by Elliott Carter (1908-2012)- American composer
I. Allegretto
II. Allegro giocoso

In 1948 several woodwind players asked me to write a work for woodwind quintet. On looking over some earlier quintet works, I found the composers were in the habit of overlooking the fact that each of these instruments has a different sound. I, on the other hand, was particularly struck by this, and so decided to write a work that would emphasize the individuality of each instrument and that made a virtue of their inability to blend completely. --Elliott Carter
