Sextet Op 16
for flute, oboe, clarinet, horn, bassoon, and piano
by Arthur Butterworth (1923-2014)-English composer, conductor, and trumpet player
I. Introduction
II. Scherzo

Written in 1956 for the Manchester Wind Ensemble, the form is simple enough: a short Introduction is followed by a scherzo-like movement with a more reflective secondary theme, and the return of the scherzo itself. Stylistically, it bears a superficial resemblance to Butterworth's First Symphony, Op 15

The piano part serves as the score.
