Woodwind Quintet (score & parts) - WW5
Composer: Yi, Chen
for woodwind quintet: flute, oboe, clarinet, horn and bassoon
by Chen Yi (b. 1953) - Chinese violinist and composer
The creative inspiration for my woodwind quintet came from the booming tide of the Chaoyin Cave in the Putuo Mountain located in southeastern China; the dull chanting from the Buddhist nunnery; the reciting tunes played by Xiao, a Chinese traditional woodwind instrument; and the rude, primitive roaring by Changjian, a Tibetan low-range instrument.
