Couplets (Score & Parts)-2OB/2BSN
Composer: Weait, Christopher
Publisher: Chris Weait
for double reed quartet: two oboes and two bassoons
by Christopher Weait (b. 1939) American composer, bassoonist, and pedagogue
A short work was composed for a group of high-school aged double reed players to rehearse with limited time and perform at a woodwind clinic. Rhythmically the parts use only quarter and eighth notes in cut time, but with a liberal scattering of rests within measures. The ranges are moderate for 2 oboes and 2 bassoons.
