About "Three Canonic Pieces"

The idea behind Three Canonic Pieces is to study whether it is possible to let every instrument of the reed quintet (oboe, B♭-clarinet, alto saxophone, bassoon & bass clarinet) play the same written notes and rhythms while creating a nice piece of music.

Although the players perform the same written notes and rhythms, due to the different transposition of the various instruments, the same written notes will produce different pitches.

With this challenge in mind I composed these three short pieces, all with a different approach within the canonic form. The result is a refreshing, exciting and surprising piece of music (at least, in my opinion).

Enjoy this piece!
