Parts set for these two wind quintets by Wilder, which are being published for the very first time. Each is comprised of four relatively brief movements. Score available separately.
The first publication of these two late wind quintets by the American composer Wilder. They were probably composed in the late 1960s. A copy of the autograph score was used for No. 9; a set of parts copied for the Boehm Quintette in 1978 was used for No. 10. With a preface.
Dedicated to the New York Woodwind Quintet. Reprint of an old Schirmer ed.
In five movements. With program notes. This work was composed around 1960. The music has a unique scoring of solo baritone sax and solo horn, with a wind quintet of flute, oboe, clarinet, horn and bassoon. This edition is based on two sets of copyist's parts, and a score prepared by Stewart in 1972.
Duration : ca. 5 minutes. New England Countryside originally formed part of Copland's score for a film version of Thornton Wilder's Our Town, which Copland later incorporated into an orchestral suite titled Music for Movies. Woodwinds quintet arrangement intended for educational use.
