Suite No. 3

"Gone with the Woodwinds"

for Wind Quintet

Don Gillis (composer)


  • Flute
  • Oboe
  • Clarinet in B
  • Horn in F
  • Bassoon


Perfect for pops concerts, SUITE NO. 3 provides a quaint time capsule of jazz-inspired classical music from 1939, soon after Gershwin’s death, and just before the hard-edged modern jazz of the 1940s. In this fast-slow-fast suite, “Take Five” refers only to relaxing for a few minutes (not the song composed decades later), and “B-Bop Major” is a musical pun that must have been added later. The Madera Quintet's recordings are available at: (Mvt. 1) (Mvt. 2) (Mvt. 3)
