WIND QUINTET REPERTOIRE

Program Notes:

The woodwind quintet is among my favorite mediums: the distinct personality of each musical instrument, alongside the harmonious blend achievable, has long sparked my imagination. The titles of the movements reflect my own interpretations and associations with each piece: The First portrays five friends gathering to play together, with one arriving late. The Second is inspired by a native ceremonial dance. The Third reminds me of a gentle breeze on a summer night, sitting on the porch. The Fourth describes a person mesmerized by fire flames, swayed like a marionette by the wind. The Fifth evokes a memory that alternates between sinking and floating, and finally, a conversation on "how a fugue should sound." However, these interpretations are solely mine. I encourage listeners to find their own connections and create their own stories.

Movements:

1. The Meeting
2. Native Dance
3. Air
4. Fire Dance
5. Longing (Sinking and Floating Memory)
6. 1+1=11 (Introduction and Fughetta)
