Virginia Creeper - Characteristic Rag
Woodwind quintet (flute, oboe, clarinet, French horn, bassoon) – advanced intermediate
Composer: Charles Roth, 1909
Arranger: C. Burdzinski
This slower rag evokes images of an idle summer afternoon, lying comfortably in a hammock surrounded by vines. Originally written for piano, this woodwind quintet arrangement is accessible for intermediate level ensembles. The melody cycles between the three upper winds and horn, while bassoon holds a slightly more challenging low bass line.
Run time: 2:30
Sheet music includes conductor's score plus individual parts for flute, oboe, Bb clarinet, French horn, and bassoon.
