Prelude and Intrada
Composed by Howard J. Buss
For woodwind quartet
Published by Brixton Publications
Duration: 5'30"

Instrumentation: Flute, Oboe, Clarinet, and Bassoon

The Prelude is an interesting combination of fanfare and lyrical sections, as well as tonal and polytonal harmonies. The festive Intrada is in an ABA-Coda format and features crisp, energetic rhythms and lyrical contrapuntal writing. This work makes a memorable concert piece as well as a stirring work to use in a church setting. Multiple players may be used on the individual parts to create a larger ensemble.
