Six movements, starting with 'Quick March' which requires some fast and neat tonguing from all the members of the quintet. The 'Polka' which follows is full of colour and requires dexterous trumpet playing. The third movement 'Blues' is a long way from a traditional New Orleans blues - with its melancholy mood and Debussy like harmony it is more like a small impressionist tone poem. 'Merry Waltz' is followed by 'Preamble', a gentle, atmospheric piece at a leisurely walking tempo. The final movement of this suite 'Tarandtango' cleverly combines two dances, the energetic tarantella and the elegant tango, resulting in an exciting and virtuoso finale.
