Quick Overview

Written for the New York Woodwind Quintet, The Bremen Town Musicians is a characteristically fanciful and virtuosic treatment of the familiar children’s tale of the four animals cast out by their cruel masters, who band together as musicians and wind up driving a den of thieves out of their hideout. Using spoken words, as well as many special effects (key clicks, multiphonics, tongue clicks, et. al.), the 19 minute work is a tour-de force for the musicians designed to charm and delight audiences of all ages. Performance materials for the five players (Flute, Oboe, Bb Clarinet, F Horn, Bassoon) are available on rental.
