Program Notes

Legends, Op. 59, B. 122 (Czech: Legendy), is a cycle of ten small-scale pieces by the Czech composer Antonín Dvořák. The work was composed originally for piano duet, but later was arranged also for a reduced orchestra. In this set, I have arranged the first 5 legends for double wind quintet and bass (contrebass) (parts are also provided for contrabassoon and tuba). The double bass is based on the original orchestration - it differs slightly from the "contra bassoon/tuba" bass part.....either part will "work".

This set contains:
Allegretto non troppo, quasi andantino (in D minor)
Molto moderato (in G major)
Allegro giusto (in G minor)
Molto maestoso (in C major)
Allegro giusto (in A♭ major)

The remaining 5 pieces in the cycle will be available as a separate set.
