Rondo from "Music for Springtime"
for woodwind quintet
by Joseph Gregorio (b.1979)- American composer
Music for Springtime was inspired in part by Samuel Barber's woodwind quintet Summer Music, a staple of the repertoire written in 1956. Music for Springtime is not an homage to Barber's work but does reflect and touch upon some of the moods and character changes heard in Summer Music. Music for Springtime was also shaped by the circumstances and timing of its composition. It was written in the year after the composer moved from California back to his native Pennsylvania, shortly after the birth of his daughter, and mostly in the springtime. Thoughts of rebirth and rejuvenation, but also of the uncertainty of transition, were undoubtedly present while composing.
