I am in a weird quintet and need feed back on anyone who has heard music for this type of ensemble.

We formed as a traditional quintet (Fl, Ob, Clar, Hrn, Bsn) but all of the WW players are doublers. So we rotate parts etc when performing. We are looking for music written for this type of configuration. Has anyone heard of anything like this or seen one perform music for this instrumentation. I have heard of doubling quartets/quintets that are all wind players but none with a Horn player.

Hi Clarinetshinobi,
nice! I dream of playing in a doubler woodwindquintett, where all kinds of combination could appear. Simply rotating should be fun, but doesn't change the output much.

I have written a "real" woodwind quintett (with tenor sax instead of horn) and transcribed it for trad. woodwind quintett and sax quintett (with sopranino).

PM me if you want parts or have weird special wishes (2 bassoons/ horn/ 2 flutes ....)

Very nicely done - I thoroughly enjoyed that! I'm sure it would sound great played by sax quintet.

Thank you very much, Keith! Dr. Paul Cohen played the sax quintett version with a student quintett half a year ago, which was a great honour for me.
