Music for a Decent Number of Winds (V.23)

A one-movement set of variations on a ridiculously simple theme. The theme is mutated, sometimes while putting up a good fight, through various musical styles ranging from baroque to jazz, impressionism to medieval court dances, and wackiness ensues.

A rollocking romp through the history of music without the slightest hint of taste,
Music for a Decent Number of Winds does more to the woodwind octet than
anyone ever thought possible--taking it to new heights of lunacy!

Octet scored for flute/piccolo, oboe/english horn, and pairs of clarinets, horns, and bassoons.
