A short piece for Wind Quintet with Neoclassical leanings...

This started out as a piece for brass quartet, though was quickly adapted when I set up a beginner's wind quintet in a school I was working in. The music doesn't outstay its welcome, which is to say: "blink and you miss it!" As much of the music is contrapuntal, the challenge for younger players is to acquire the confidence to stick to their own independent line whilst listening to the surrounding texture.

And I make no apology for the hints of Bach, Stravinsky and Hindemith – it's just how it came out...
