Product Description

This lively overture is from an opera first performed in 1694, written by Élisabeth Jacquet de la Guerre, a female French composer from the Baroque Period. It was originally for string orchestra with oboe and basso continuo and has been arranged here for a standard woodwind quintet. The piece has 3 sections defined by different meters, and the bouncy melodic lines get energy from dotted rhythms and ornaments. It's a great addition to woodwind quintet libraries and recitals since it offers music by a female composer from the Baroque Period.

This product was created by a member of ArrangeMe, Hal Leonard's global self-publishing community of independent composers, arrangers, and songwriters. ArrangeMe allows for the publication of unique arrangements of both popular titles and original compositions from a wide variety of voices and backgrounds.
