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 honestly don’t know how many times I played this, but I used to play it a lot. I know it so very well and listening to it brings back memories.

Playing this while all together is hard enough. Can’t imagine doing it as a virtual WWQ!
