    Woodwind Fun from Brian Sadler

    Brian Sadler -sent in this delightful work for woodwind sextet:


    First of all this delightful work was extremely well written and arranged. The instrumentation used from GPO was: Solo Flute Vib, Modern Oboe Ens., Clarinet Ens.1 , Bass Clarinet Ens 1, Bassoon Ens1 , and Contrabassoon solo 1.

    In addition, Brian also recorded himself taking a couple of quick breaths and some key clanks for the contrabassoon. IHe also added a squeak in the clarinet part. Brilliant Brian! Adding these instrumetn nuances certain adds more realism to the music.

    Thanks Brian for sending this in.

    By gosh, this is good! Great job on this, Brian -- and those added touches of realism were perfect.

    This is so cool! Wonderful writing, Brian. Your title "gigue" implies there might be more movements. If there aren't you should write more! I look forward to hearing more!

    Great job! The contrabassoon is way beyond cool. It was hard to keep still... in fact, I couldn't, and spilled my diet coke in the process.
    Completely and utterly enjoyable. Thanks

    Great to have you back, Brian. Excellent, excellent piece! We should somehow harness the energy of this. The composition is great as well as the mixing. I second the motion of more movements. BRAVO!

    Thanks for all of the great comments! I wasn't planning on making any movements, but now I think I will!

    I'll keep you updated!

    Yes, by popular demand, you should make more movements of this spectacular piece. And those breath marks you added makes me jealous that I can't do those kinds of things. But really, the piece is great!

    Absolutely great WW writing and so realistically performed. Your "space" applied to the instruments is definitely a model a lot of us want to emulate.

    Really enjoyed this short piece and downloaded it for future listens and study. Thanks for sharing.
