Product details: Audio CD (September 12, 2016) Label: AM Publishers ASIN: B01LPBKQTM
CD contains composer Fred Onovwerosuoke’s “Four Dances for Woodwind Quintet,” “Four More Dances for Woodwind Quintet” and “Rhapsodies for Wind Quintet,’ Nos. 2 & 3. An exciting journey into new vast sanctum of intricate rhythms. As the composer kindly shared with us: “each movement is complete and independent but collectively they capture a celebration of life, of a people’s accomplishments, hopes and aspirations…” Included on the CD is that lovely perky favorite, “Beethoven Returns to Africa,” a satirical perspective on the possible African roots of the legendary composer. The very poetic Movt. No. 2, Domenshigbe (from Four More Dances), in which the composer’s innate urge shines through telling a story without words. And, of course, Royal Serenade (Movt. No. 3 of Four More Dances) with is now a favorite with intermediate and professional WWQ musicians, alike!
