George Gershwin: Rhapsody in blue for woodwind quintet
Rhapsody in blue for woodwind quintet
George Gershwin (1898 - 1937)
Dwarsfluit, hobo, klarinet, fagot en hoorn
Everyone knows the famous clarinet glissando opening in Gershwin's "Rhapsody in Blue", but how many know that the original version was scored for two pianos and that the glissando was initially just an ascending scale?
Joachim Linckelmann's superb arrangement of this modern classic is based on this original version and, with the exception of two solo piano passages that cannot be realized with a woodwind quintet, the entire work is presented.(ISMN 9790006543724)
