Quintessence for flute, clarinet, violin, viola, and cello by H.J. BussIncludes score and partsDuration: 13 minutes
Quintessence for flute, clarinet, violin, viola, and cello by Howard J. Buss was composed during 1982. It is divided into three colorful and contrasting movements: The first is characterized by an elaborate contrapuntal dialog between the flute and clarinet over an energetic ostinato in the strings. The second is mystical in nature, and in the third (entitled Energetic) a central section featuring the cello is surrounded by sections with exciting, driving ostinati and intricate counterpoint.
