    Default TC composition contest, round 4

    Specifications for this round:
    Submissions should be a single movement or multiple movements of six minutes or less total duration composed for 3-5 instruments chosen from among:

    Piccolo, flute, oboe, English Horn, clarinet, bass clarinet, bassoon, contrabassoon
    Violin, viola, cello, double bass.

    More than one of any instrument is okay. You will notice that this allows standard wind trios/quartets/quintets, string trios/quartets/quintets, clarinet quintets and the like, as well as eccentric mixed ensembles like that of Prokofiev’s quintet (ob, cl, vln, vla, cb) and numerous other possibilities.

    If your piece has a title, descriptive or generic, it will be posted with the sound file.

    Entries are due by Monday, December 17, 2018 — a little extra time to compensate for holiday season distractions. Please send me a link via PM to the audio or the audio and score uploaded to Dropbox, google drive, youtube, soundcloud or any other clickable link to the file(s). I will then post these links into a new thread with a poll and we can begin the voting round. Whoever gets the most votes can decide what the next round will be.

    What greater comfort does time afford than the objects of terror re-encountered and their fraudulence exposed in the flash of reason?

    Originality is a device untalented people use to impress other untalented people and to protect themselves from talented people.

    Revision to the specifications ^ ^ ^:

    Oops!: I intended but forgot to put French horn on the list of available instruments (otherwise a standard wind quintet would be out).

    So:

    Horn can be used too!

    I’ll do my best to enter this one! I haven’t really found much time to compose whilst on holiday but I’m liking the options and amount of time we have here....

    I started writing a piece for this, but it turned into a piece for full orchestra

    maybe I should arrange it for some group of 5 players.

    ok sorry I shouldn't tease. I decided to not arrange it (after trying - it doesn't work).

    So here it is.

    Hope you enjoy it. Any criticism welcome
