WhirlwindDaniel Burwasser - Imagine Music Publishing
This woodwind quintet was written in 2014. It is modeled on the classical form and is a three-movement work in the standard fast-slow-fast structure ending in a rondo. The first movement is based on a single lyrical theme that is stated throughout by each member of the ensemble in whole or in part. The second movement is a slow ternary form and features long expressive melodic lines. The title has no programmatic implication, but expresses interest in momentum and expressive concision.
