Please find here my second piece for woodwind quintet, still in the learning phase of this setting. It is lively and happy with a slow singable intermezzo in between. The themes were developed on piano but hopefully it is also playable with these instruments.

Actually when changing to these instrument pictures of birds and their fascinating life occurred to me, explaining the unusual title.

Hi Kjell, I think you achieved your goal here, the instrumentation seems right on for the idea of birds, the melody is memorable, and it is well executed. The only thing I thought could be better is that the ending is rather abrupt, would have liked a little more development building to it and more of a climax. Altogether, well done!

Thanks for sharing it, and best -

Thank you very much Gav for your feedback. And yes, the ending is so important I agree. I did think about it and thought it was a nice idea to end exactly as it starts. But when I listen to it further more maybe I should have built more upon the new theme appearing in the end. Now it is too late but your advice I will bring with me in future works.
