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

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.
