    Reverie (woodwind quartet FOCB)

    This is a old "little" piece for woodwind quartet -- flute, oboe, clarinet and bassoon. It was kind of an experiment in modes and rhythms (it's in Dorian mode and 5/4 time with alot of odd rhythms). I was trying evoke a playful, relaxed feeling -- Sunday afternoon curled up with a glass of wine, a good book of poetry and a plate of pasta topped with "Sosnowski sauce".

    It's a little over 4 minutes long. Thanks for listening.

    COOL! More KE Peace!

    Always a delight to hear your work. I'm a fan of Dorian mode, and very much enjoyed this picture. Although if I was curled up with a bowl of pasta topped with anything sauce, it would invariable end up on the furniture!

    You're so good at creating neat soundworlds with woodwind, and this is no exception.

    Thanks!

    Perfect spots for some great trills!! Nice balance on keeping the bassoon from over-powering everyone else as well.

    Nice placement of staccatos and rests and everything else.

    Overall you have done exactly what you said you would do and this is a very enjoyable piece even though it is Monday.

    Well done

    Ron

    That's what good old "down-home" beat-up furniture from the thrift shop is for

    Thanks Owen, David and Ron for the nice words, glad you liked it.

    "Reverie" is the perfect title! It puts one into a very reverieful mood. (Is that a word? If not, it should be).

    You forgot to mention what the piece told me about that Sunday morning: The sun is shining through a few puffy, white clouds and there's a warm breeze from the east. The piece really does conjure up that image for me. Good work! Keep 'em coming.

    I enjoyed your reverie with your woodwind quartet and plate full of "Sosnowski sauce". I can see that eating the sauce is much more relaxing than cooking it….

    Karen,

    Very nice woodwind quintet composition and presentation. I am listening to it while I am working at home. Thanks for sharing it with the forum.

    Delicious woodwind work, Karen, with gorgeous sonorities,
    velvety textures...

    What struck me more, though, is how well you brought
    forth a sense of fluidity in many places, with the closely
    overlapping statements and echoes (almost stretto;
    itself used motivically?).

    There's some excellent thinking in this, Karen.

    My best,
