Quartet, by Stephen Malinowski, accompanied by a scrolling bar-graph score.


Q: Where can I get free sheet music for this?

Q: Hey, I got the score, but ... it's for recorder quartet.

Q: When did you write this, and why?
A: In 1976, the instrument maker Friedrich von Huene was scheduled to visit Santa Barbara (my home town, where I was living at the time). I really liked his recorders, so I started composing a piece in his honor; I was thinking that I could arrange a performance of it for him. However, he cancelled, so I stopped after writing the first movement. I think it was performed at a meeting of the American Recorder Society toward the end of that year, with William Ure, Michael Foote, Aquila Chase and me.

Q: Can you explain the structure and intention of this piece?
A: Okay. You'll want to download the score to refer to:
