Chameleons for Woodwind Quintet by Nicole Buetti
Instrumentation: flute, oboe, clarinet, horn, bassoon
Score and parts
This piece was commissioned for the Chameleon Woodwind Quintet. Each movement is a portrait of a different member of the group, capturing the beauty, exuberance, eccentricities and quirks of each player and their instrument. The four movements are in contrasting styles, and the composer (and bassoonist of the group) is represented by the differing compositional techniques used throughout. This piece is fun and challenging for each member of the group, and very enjoyable for the audience!
