by Gary Friedman (b. 1934)- American composer
For the quintet that is missing the bassoon, here is the perfect set of pieces. However, just in case others are late, the 4th part can be performed by bassoon (part provided) AND an EH part is provided in lieu of Clarinet, making these DR quartets of OB (on flute part)/OB/EH/BSN!
From the composer: These quartets were written for flute, oboe, clarinet and horn because there are so few pieces for this combination. If a woodwind quintet group assembles and the bassoonist is late or cannot attend, there is little that can be played by all the others. The horn part can also be played on a bassoon; a bassoon part in concert pitch is provided. Thus, these pieces can be played by a standard woodwind quartet. Also provided is the clarinet part transposed for English horn. Since the flute part can be played on oboe, these pieces can be played by a double reed quartet consisting of two oboes, English horn and bassoon. I have written 6 of these and the first 3 are sold together.
