Rhapsody in Blue arranged for Wind Quintet
- Staff Pick
“Great music for wind quintet!”
This feels a very natural piece to be arranged for wind quintet and this version works very well. All the big moments are here, with the instrumentation spaced intelligently to try to convey the sound of the original. Inevitably you will need a good clarinettist but all the parts have something to contribute. The end is both exacting and exciting. You can't fail to love this - promise!
