Program Note:
      The Five Poems for wind quintet - the third preceded by a short Interlude (Lamenting bird) - express my admiration for birds, these wonderful creatures who embellish our lives so magically. They are only imaginary poems; there are no words, as the poems have not been written. The suggested titles give the listeners free imagination. Musically I have tried to explore some new possibilities of techniques and sound combinations while at the same time bringing out the virtuosity of present-day woodwind performers.
- Karel Husa
