PPS184 12 MINUETS Wo07 by LUDWIG VAN BEETHOVEN (1770 - 1827) arranged for wind quintet by Pat Spence*

These 12 Minuets with Trios were originally written for orchestra. The wind instrument scoring varied considerably from minuet to minuet but the strings never included any violas. The 12 pieces would most likely have been played at a grand ball for dancing. Here they are arranged for woodwind quintet and can be played by instrumentalists of intermediate standard and above.

PPS155/WQ PETITE SUITE by Claud Debussy arranged by Pat Spence*

This arrangement for wind quintet is suitable for advanced players and is published now to mark the hundredth anniversary of Debussy's death. The arrangement was made from the piano original not any of the orchestral arrangement made by Debussy and others. A performance of all 4 movements (En bateau, Cortège, Menuet & Ballet) takes about 12 minutes. I hope that I have made this an enjoyable piece for all five players to play whether just for enjoyment or as a concert piece. (The clarinet part is for A clarinet.)

PIPER NEW CLASSICS


J.C. BACH (1735 - 82) SIX QUINTETTOS OPUS 11 for flute, oboe, 2 clarinets & bassoon edited & arranged by Pat Spence

Almost certainly composed for performance at the famous Bach - Abel concerts in London about 1771, these quintettos (originally for flute, oboe, violin, viola & cello) are a joy to play. Nos. 2 & 5 are scored for clarinets in A, nos. 1,3, 4 & 6 are for clarinets in Bb. From these and other of Bach’s works it is easy to understand why he was so strong an influence on the young Mozart - who held his friend in great esteem.

Bach introduced the clarinet to the London music scene in 1761 but was very sparing in its use, probably due to a lack of competent players.
