Shankin' on a Rutabaga for Wind Quintet


  • Interesting, worth a look

From the Publisher

This quirky composition was originally sketched in the halls of the Henry Mancini Institute in a race to get a new work on the bill of a concert.

Composer's Notes

"Uniquely, this piece always makes me think I’m some British composer who was writing about rabbits vying for vegetables, frolicking in a forbidden garden... maybe I was channeling ‘The Tortoise & the Hare’ and the turtle finally gets a voice at ‘E’. The rabbit gets a tummy ache mistaking a rutabaga for a carrot, & has to play catch up...?"

-Mark Adam Watkins
