WIND DECTET

Wind Dectet Music

Wind dectet: 2 flutes, 2 oboes, 2 clarinets, 2 horns and 2 bassoons (often known as a double wind quintet, decet or tentet)
I have arrangements on both my score exchange and SheetMusicPlus pages.


Listen here to my arrangements 


​I have arranged these pieces as if they had been written originally for winds, so I try to allow places for the players to breath.


I try to avoid a constant tutti so the music has some variation and voice colour.


I share the melody out and don't always give it to the flutes.


Whenever possible I give any solos to the instrument they were originally written for.


I always write/use natural horn parts for my "classical" arrangements

My arrangements:

Bach


​Beethoven


Brahms


Dvorak

​I am  currently (April 2017) arranging all 10 movements of Dvorak's Legends Op.59.

  • ​Legends is a cycle of ten small-scale pieces. The work was composed originally for piano duet, but later was arranged for a reduced orchestra. 

The approximate duration of the complete work is 40 minutes.

You can find all the ones I have uploaded here. (Mvts 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 9 and10)(as at 11/05/2017)
