intro! [02 May 2005|05:27pm]

Hi all! I just finished my freshman year as an oboe performance major at the University of Michigan. I'm in a quintet, and we were fortunate enough to rehearse and perform Barber's Summer Music near the end of the year. I loved playing it; it's a really gorgeous piece. Now we're looking at the Nielsen this summer, so hopefully we'll be able to play it next year.

A no-name ww quintet that needs a name [26 Mar 2005|06:21pm]

Hello, my name is Alan and I'm recently started up my own Wood Wind Quintet. We came about through our youth symphony (greater boston youth symphony orchestra) and all of us has had quintet experience. There's only one problem though, we can't come up with our own name for our group. How did you guys come up with names for your groups?

Chamber Music for Clarinet, Piano, and ? [14 Nov 2004|01:07pm]

[ mood | energetic ]

Hi everyone! I'm currently in a violin, clarinet, piano trio at my college, working on Bartok's Contrasts. The piece is incredible...it was a bit rough at first, but thanks to loads of practice and help from our coach, we can play it really well.

Now I need help picking a piece for us to work on next semester...

Our violinist is going abroad, so the pianist and I are open to any trio/quartet combination that involves clarinet and piano. What is the most challenging piece you can think of? Something at least as challenging as the Bartok. It can be for cl/vln/piano, cl/cello/piano, cl/viola/piano, cl/vln/cello/piano. We're not too keen on playing the Brahms trio, or the Mozart Kegelstatt...I know those pieces are challenging in their own way, but they're not as much fun to work on as Bartok has been!

So please, any and all suggestions are welcome!

p.s. Anyone ever work on the Hindemith Quartet (cl/vln/cello/piano...same instrumentation as Messaien's quartet for the end of time)? I have yet to listen to it, and I'm curious.

Hello, everybody!

My name is Andrey, I'm an oboist from Moscow, Russia. I currently work
in Russian National Orchestra under Mikhail Pletnev
(http://www.rno.ru/).
(You can find my bio here - http://rubtsov.oboe.ru/bio-eng.htm).

We have quintet in my orchestra. Russian National Orchestra wind
quintet. We playing a lot in Russia and abroad.

My second major is composition. Playing in quintet inspired me 2 years
ago to write a piece for this ensemble.

Besides many performances by RNO wind quintet in Russia, Spain, USA,
in Bermuda (Bermuda music festival) it was included in concert
programms of 7 other wind ensembles who performed it in Russia,
Lithuania, Bulgaria, England and USA (GreatNotes ensemble).

In 2003 this composition inspired Bermudean choreographer Conchita Ming to create a
dance for three performers for Bermuda Music Festival. "Three Moods" has
been recorded by PentaToneClassics for release on a forthcoming CD
featuring the Russian National Orchestra Wind Quintet.

I thought, maybe this would be interesting for any You.
My style is quite conservative, more romantic, nothing avant-garde.
Here is recording of the piece:

Just letting anyone interested know that I have created another new community:

instrumenticons: A place to post musical instrument & other related icons (LJ, AIM & others) you have created & would like to share.

I've been seeing some beautiful icons as of late & have kind of hit my own icon craze, so I decided to make a community related to it after finding none!

So join if you want to & it applies to you! :)

I'm curious to hear what everyone's favorite trio (with clarinet) is. I'm starting a chamber group with a friend who plays the piano (and i play clarinet), and we're going to ask either a violinist or cellist to play with us. Right now, I'm just trying to get a sense of some of the popular clarinet-violin/cello-piano trios out there! We also have to decide whether to go with violin or cello. I've already played the Brahms clarinet/cello/piano trio, but anything else is fine...preferably something on the more challenging side. Thanks =)

My quintet performed the Dahl "Allegro and Arioso for 5 Woodwinds" on monday. I made a recording on minidisc and turned it into mp3 and ogg file formats. Here are the links.

Thanks tremendously for your suggestions! :)

some interesting quintets. [24 Nov 2003|04:27am]

has anyone played the Persichetti Pastorale for wind quintet? Is anyone who has played it completely amazed that Persichetti wrote it? I was listening to the CD today (without the cover) and I heard it about 5 times and thought, " that music be someone like Copland or Barber or something..." and I was amazed that it was Persichetti.

I want to hear everything you know about the piece!

Also, while we're on the topic: Has anyone played the Ligeti 6 miniatures for Wind quintet? are they difficult? are they fun to play? just so you know where I'm coming from, I'm a composer, and I'm doing a lot of work for winds these days. I'm just completing a woodwind trio (fl, cl, bsn) called "Seasoning Margaret" and then I'll be setting some William Stafford poetry for Baritone and Woodwind Quintet. I'd just like to know what works in these pieces practically for your instruments as I don't play any woodwind instrument.

Wow! How did i not know there was a community for this?! I love all music performance, but wind quintet playing HAS to be my favorite. I'm in a wonderful quintet at my college right now (I play clarinet). We just started working on the Hindemith Quintet last week, and i love it! Anyways, i guess that's it for my intro post =)

alright everyone...i'm finally in a wind quintet up here and apparently everyone has big expectations for us so they're cramming music down our throats. good thing we're all lazy. :) no that's not true, we're a good bunch. so here's our music so far...if anyone's played any of these pieces i would love to hear about it!

string quartet op.51 (trans. for wind quintet) - dvorak, arr. jolley
woodwind quintet (for nadia boulanger) - elliott carter
suite for wind quintet - anton lefevbre

that's it for now, i think. i'm sure jolley has more for us. like i need any more music to play.

Hi everybody, I'm new, yo.

I'm a first year clarinet performance student at Oberlin, and I am a chamber music dork. I luuuuuuuurve it. I'm in some shittyass quintet reading group this semester that makes me want to jam paper clips into my eyes. All we do is sightread one of those boring ass Danzi pieces every week, and the coach is 900 years old. AND it meets on Friday nights. Thought I would vent about my life problems for awhile.

Greetings, fellow music afficianados!

My WW Quintet this year is a blast---we're all serious about playing and we've been putting in 2-3 rehearsal a week plus coaching. We've been trying to tackle the Ingolf Dahl Allergro and Arioso for 5 Woodwind Instruments. Anyone know the piece? I think it may be one of the hardest pieces I've played, as far as ensemble and musical demands go. We're also playing Gunther Schuller's quintet, which is a blast.

I'm a horn player at USC by the way.

hey all, my name's andrew. the maintainer of this site, imani, is a good friend of mine (and happens to be an ex-girlfriend too. but we won't go into that.) i just wanted to introduce myself to the community, and encourage everyone to post any questions they might have. i might not be able to answer them, but i'm sure somebody can!

anyway, a little about me. you got the story of the clarendon wind quintet (which hopefully will play again...someday). but until then, i'm a student at the eastman school of music, where i'm studying horn performance and instrumental music education. it's my freshman year here, so i'm still getting used to a few things, but i absolutely love it.

best of luck to anybody in a wind or brass group!

Hey all

My name is Courtney and I'm a horn player at a liberal arts college in Washington. Next year I'm hoping to re start our school's woodwind quintet made up of all of the principals in the orchestra. We're also doing a brass quintet that we hope will also become a kind of tradition. So, I've actually played in very few ensembles that didn't consist of all horns, so I was hoping you guys could list some of your favorite pieces for either woodwind or brass quintet. I especially like really romantic sounding, dramatic pieces but I guess that's part of being a brass player. And if anyone knows any woodwind quintets with super cool horn parts I'd really appreciate that too. fun arrangements of stuff is neat too. I'm a complete novice at this so anythign would be helpful. Thanks a bunch!!

I have been selected for a chamber music camp in Wichita, and the chamber music group I was placed in was a woodwind quintet. They said in order to familiarize ourselves with the music, we must find a recording of it.... of course, I have no idea where to find recordings of any of the pieces soo.. can you guys help me? The pieces are:

Blaserquintett g-moll by Framz Damzo

La Cheminee du Roi Rene by Darius Milhaud

Thanks!

Our woodwind quintet is looking for new music to play next year. We need chamber music and solid repertoire pieces...but we also need fun, light songs to play for concerts and at other schools in our area. Can anyone make any recommendations?

The music would be for an intermediate-advanced group of players, high-school age.
