Sonatina for Woodwinds

Rubinstein,David (1949-)
Sex  Male
Written  1998
Duration  7:00
Comments  The Sonatina consists of three movements: 1. allegro con spirito 2. aria 3. allegro. Sonatina for Woodwinds, composed in 1998, is a classically influenced work. The lyrical and upbeat first movement, allegro con spirito, is an abridged sonata-allegro form; the aria is a simple song form which repeats with slight variation, and the last movement, a light-hearted rondo. It received its world premiere by Calico Winds (champions of the woodwind quintet repertoire) at the Sunday Muse Intergenerational Concerts in Los Angeles in 2000. It has also been performed by the North Wind Quintet and featured on the New Directions Series of the Bakersfield Symphony. It will make a delightful addition to any collection of woodwind quintet music. It requires little rehearsal and always brings an enthusiastic audience response.
