Composed by Cesar Franck
For Woodwind Quintet
Arranged by Geoffrey Emerson
Published by Emerson Wind Editions

Instrumentation: Flute, Oboe, Bb Clarinet, Horn, Bassoon

      Cesar Franck (1822-1890) was born in Liege, Belgium but became a naturalised French citizen and spent most of his life in Paris. Surprisingly enough, his music was largely unpopular during his lifetime, and the String Quartet in D, written in 1889 and first performed the following year was his first unqualified success. The scherzo, which is in Franck's very best style has been transposed up a semitone from F sharp minor and works very well on wind. It should be played as fast as is practicable, and without heaviness. The quartet is unjustly neglected nowadays (another reason why string players shouldn't be allowed to keep all the best tunes).
