Brass, Reeds, and Percussion: February 29, 2020

Gaetano Donizetti composed almost 70 operas. But he also composed many works for wind instruments—almost as many pieces for winds as he did for strings. He wrote pieces for every instrument in the typical woodwind quintet: flute, clarinet, oboe, horn, and bassoon. Today’s edition of Brass, Reeds, and Percussion beings with his Concertino for Clarinet. Of course, this started out as a orchestral work, but has been arranged for wind band. It is performed by the Military Band of the Grand Duke of Luxembourg, which is the primary military band of that country.
