Quilting BeeFour Diversions on American Folk Songs for Double Wind Quintet

McAlister, Clark

Written for the Cochran Commissioning Project to 'introduce and inspire young musicians to the joys of chamber music through shared music making', this affectionate take on four traditional American songs is true chamber music. One of McAlister's most personable scores; the warmth of Barber and the bright-eyed clarity of Copland with his own brand of wind wizardry. 11 minutes
