Piece of the week (March 16th)

This week’s piece (requested by Sophie and Laura Jeffs) is by American/British composer Stephen Montague, whose best pieces blend (tongue-in-cheek) experimentalism with a sense of theatre. This piece for wind quintet dispenses with the main body of all the instruments leaving players just with their reeds and mouthpieces. Montague explores the dramatic and sonic possibilities of this very fully in this short piece.
