Dvorak: Serenade for Strings Op.22 Mvt. III Scherzo - wind dectet

Written for string orchestra, I have arranged it for wind dectet ( double wind quintet)

Dvořák is said to have written this Serenade in just 12 days, from 3–14 May. The piece was premiered in Prague on 10 December 1876 by Adolf Čech and the combined orchestras of the Czech and German theatres.

Rather than simply transcribing the parts, I have tried to imagine how Dvorak would have written it for wind ensemble, so have spread the string parts around, rather than always giving violin 1 to the flute/oboes.

I have added horn sustaining notes in some places.

I have also tried to give the wind player somewhere to breath, so restricted the tutti passages.

Hope it becomes a useful companion piece to his Serenade for Wind Op.44.

I intend to arrange further movements idc.
