Woodwind quintet (flute, oboe, clarinet, French horn, bassoon) – advanced intermediate
Composer: Fred Heltman, 1909

This fun ragtime arrangement of "Daisy Rag Two-Step" opens with clarinet and flute on melody, followed by a switch to a minor key during which the oboe takes the melody. The bassoon and French horn carry the bassline, with each instrument sharing the upbeats and downbeats. A trio section features the clarinet, flute, and horn. This part is reminiscent of carnival or carousel music.
