This transcription was first made for the famous Boehm Quintette in about 1978. Many adjustments have been made to this date of first publication. Although in essence it's a simple piece, it does fly by, and successful transcription required on-going trial and error. The music is in fact indestructible, yet for a most showy performance all details need attention. What is presented here works very well; some ensembles might want to make their own small emendations. It will be enjoyed by all audiences and probably all wind quintets.

Instrumentation: Flute doubling on Piccolo, Oboe, Clarinet in Bb, Horn in F, and Bassoon
