Carlo Gesualdo: O vos omnes

(be ready for some pretty crazy harmony!)

Here is more music, and I’ve also updated the WWQ list. Purchaser pays for shipping. You can text me (if you have my phone number!), email at pattyoboe [at] me [dot] com, or leave a message here on the site if you want a quote. By the time people get to me it’s possible some things will have already been sold. I do try to keep up and strike through things that have been requested but not paid for. Once payment is received I remove items completely. (Payment via Zelle is easiest, Venmo works as well. Paypal charges me a fee, so that’s less desirable.)

An asterisk means the music was never touched, aside from my putting my name on all the parts. There was a time when I had very little self-control about music purchasing! Some women buy shoes. I bought music.

22. November 2023 · Comments Off on Letting Music Go · Categories: Sales!, WWQuintet · Tags: , ,

I’ve had music in my closet that hasn’t been played in years — in some cases for over twenty years, I’m sure, and possibly even longer! At this point I am finally letting it go. I compiled a list of woodwind quintet music I was selling and posted it on Facebook, but I realized not everyone is on that site, so I will also post things here.

After Thanksgiving (possibly even before if I find myself with free time), I’ll start posting more chamber music. I’m not releasing my oboe solo works, nor am I letting etude books go, but I’m ready to say goodbye to a lot of chamber music. (Sadly I never did end up playing some works that I had hoped to do, but I didn’t exactly work hard on finding players to do them with.)

Here are the quintet works still “on the market”. Those with an * are completely clean parts — no marks aside from my name:

*Malcolm Arnold: Three Shanties
*J.C. Bach (arr. Wall): Classical Quintet
Claude Debussy (arr. Bozza): Le Petit Négre
Eric Ewazen: Roaring Fork
Farkas Ferenc: Early Hungarian Dances from the 17th Century
*Gary Friedman: The Pied Piper of Hamelin (for WWQ and narrator)
*George Gershwin (arr. William Hoyt): Preludes for Piano
Joseph Haydn (arr. Philadelphia WWQ): Divertimento No 1 in B-flat
Gustav Holst: Wind Quintet in A-flat
Darius Milhaud: La Cheminée du Roi René
*Philip Rothman: Six Miniatures
*Joan Tower: Island Prelude (for oboe and wind quartet)
*Flemming Weis: Serenade without serious intentions
*Richard D. Wetzel: Sonatina On American Folk Themes

Pricing is sort of tricky, but it was suggested I charge 50% of the original cost, which seems fair in most instances, but I’m open to negotiation. Purchaser pays for shipping.

If you want to see my library list you can go here, but I admit I haven’t kept it up to date so I’m betting there are things that I no longer have and there are new things I never bothered to list!

I absolutely love Lea Desandre and Thomas Dunford, and this particular video includes Bruno Philippe on cello as well. And I’m just in awe. If Hahn’s À Chloris doesn’t hit you like it hits me … well … I guess we won’t connect all that well! (It’s possible I’ve posted this before. But if so I think it’s well worth a re-share!)

Beautiful music played wonderfully by the fabulous Mingjia Liu. Bravo to you, and bravi tutti to the group! Gorgeous phrasing, sound, dynamics … and that second movement! Ahhhh.

As an English horn player I was ready not to enjoy this. But honestly, it is just lovely.

This is the version of the work I shared below that I much prefer, even while VOCES8 is my favorite vocal group. I like the simplicity of this arrangement (and the barbershop style that slips into the other version isn’t my cuppa).
