Romance for Woodwind Quintet
Instrumentation: Woodwind Quintet (Flute, Oboe, Clarinet, Horn, and Bassoon)
Date Completed: July 2016
Notes: I wrote "Romance" in the summer of 2016 at Interlochen Center for the Arts, but its melody had been floating around in my mind far longer. About a year before, I scribbled up a work for woodwind choir, but I left it unfinished. At summer camp, I rescored it for a smaller group and polished it. This performance took place at the first of two sightreading sessions at the Interlochen Public Radio Station, where an extremely talented student wind quintet sightread and recorded it.
