Interesting article I attached. When I lived in Wakefield 14+ years ago Carol Wiebe played a couple of my works in a concert. I had no idea she was an MD. I just knew her as a pianist.

The latest twist: they have found a bassoonist ... but he can make it for only one rehearsal.  I suspect I am going to regret the section toward the end (rehearsal mark I) where the music comes to a dead stop followed by an accelerando where the instruments enter one by one.  Easy if one person is "conducting"; chaos if each decides his or her own interpretation of accelerando.

I sort of feel like I'm misrepresenting the piece by saying it's for "wind quintet".  Yes, there are 5 players there, but that's not exactly what "wind quintet" usually implies.

As long as it's not five kazoo players, I'm open to your liberal definition.
 
Cheers,

An "interesting" twist.   Yesterday morning I got an email saying essentially, "We don't have a bassoonist for the program.  Can you rewrite the part for bass clarinet?".   That was a pretty trivial change but it makes me a little nervous.  Seems a bit late to find that out.   I'm glad this is not a difficult piece.

The Octava concert, which features Patrick's wind piece, is coming up in one week!  Looks like an interesting program. I'll try to attend the concert.

Thanks Jamie! A bit on the nervous and athletic side for me, though :)
