Rhapsody In Blue is a major addition to the woodwind quintet repertoire.
This version of Rhapsody In Blue includes a score and five parts and has been arranged for Flute, Oboe, Clarinet in B-flat, Horn in F and Bassoon at an intermediate playing level.
Many people know the famous Clarinet glissando opening to Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue, but very few know that the original version was scored for two Pianos and that the glissando was initially just an ascending scale.
Joachim Linckelmann’s superb arrangement of this modern classic is based on this original version and, with the exception of two solo Piano passages that cannot be realised by a woodwind quintet, the entire work is presented.
