Wind Dectet Music
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

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.
