    Scherzo for Woodwind Quintet - by Lars Halle

    Lars Halle sent in this marvelous woodwind quintet called "Scherzo for Woodwind Quintet".

    Very intricate writing and an amazing use of woodwind colors. Lars did this entirely in Finale using GPO.

    Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

    I enjoyed this one a lot. Interesting motivic development, and beautiful harmonies.
    A bit short though.

    Definitely different for the WWQ. I played horn in one in high school with four female students. I think we always had an edge at contest because the WWQ was a pretty rare ensemble and was a nice change for the judges ears and also the oboist was exceptional.

    Interesting piece, compositionally -- and very astute, wonderful coloristic writing for the winds. Very well rendered.

    About the only adverse comment I might make is, well, I'd like to hear more!

    Magnificent. great tone colors and rhythms.

    But I'll echo the main thought here: MUCH TOO SHORT.

    Too short indeed! Very colorful writing, I enjoyed this very much. This piece really makes the GPO woodwinds shine. Great work!

    I'm just being honest, this is not my cup of tea, but the realization is excellent.
    Great work, especially with just notation.
