These short pieces for wind quintet are fun and humourous in character. Ranging from a miniature Scherzo through to a Rag to an extended set of Waltz Variations they cover a range of C20th styles and influences. They are designed to be as much fun to play as to listen to and contain challenges both rhythmic and stylistic for the ensemble.
