Bird in the cornmeal
flute, oboe, clarinet in Bb, horn in F and bassoon
Everyone knows the Brazilian song ´Tico-tico´, one of the most famous Latin standards. The song is about a little bird in corn flour. The rhythmically lively melody forms the basis of a virtuoso arrangement forwind quintet by Prof. Andreas Tarkmann (Mannheim) in which all instrumentalists are assigned rewarding tasks. An ideal encore piece for wind quintets who wish to add ´a special touch´ to their programme.
