    "Woodwind Quartet #04"

    This is a portion of my "Woodwind Quartet #04". It is all GPO with flute, oboe, Bb clarinet and contrabassoon.

    Very good, Larry. Some interesting harmonic turns here and there. I'm curious, why did you opt for a contra bassoon? The big boy works fine but I'm wondering.

    Never look at the trombones. It only encourages them. Richard Strauss

    Because some of the low notes that I wrote were unreachable by the regular bassoon. I also like the "gutteral, throaty" sound of the contra. There's no other instrumental sound quite like it.

    Thanks for listening.

    Thumbs up Re: "Woodwind Quartet #04"

    Love the intro! Ahhhh yesssss, this is more like it! Real interesting harmonic figures happening with a nice bounce advancing it all right along! Love the break! Ha! Nice!!!
    This was real entertaining to say the least. Love it! Nice harmonies!

    Fine woodwind writing, Larry... and I, too, am a big fan of the gutsy, brawling contrabassoon.

    (Interestingly enough, every contrabassoon player I've ever known (all one of them) has been a gutsy, brawling, er, well, come to think of it, that player was a woman about half the height of the instrument... nevermind.)

    Nice job on this, Larry!

    By the way, I seem to notice lately that many of your mixes are quite good; as this one, very clear, crisp and present... just the right touch on the sound treatment, and good balance to them.

    My thanks to you, Dave.

    As far as the mixes are concerned, even a blind hog finds an acorn from time to time.

    I see you've discovered the method I use, too.

    Excellent woodwind writing! I like this! Reminds me of Beethoven... I think (I'm honestly not very familiar with Beethoven, or basically a whole chunck of the classical era composers.)

    Good job!
