The musical compositions of Richard Burdick

Opus 76

QuadRhumbi:

For flute, xylophone, horn, trombone (or two horns) and contrabass.

Written June 1993

Premiered August 10, 1993 at the Bear Valley Music Festival

QuadRhumba I

This work is somewhat like my work “Astral Waves” in that it explores an overlapping pattern. In this work it is mostly a 4+4+4+5.

QuadRhumba II

This work is more a modern baroque piece than most of my out-put.

I have no problem with these pieces being arranged for other ensembles. It could be wind quintet as the oboe plays the xylophone part, the clarinet get the horn part, bassoon get the trombone part and horn goes to the base. This or many other possibilities would be fine with me.

“This CD proves that what may have sounded weird sixty years ago now sounds normal and often beautiful.”

There are many lesser-known 20th century composers, who have great worth!

Let’s not forget the music of:
Wendell Otey
Alan Hovhaness
Henry Cowell
Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco
Gunther Schuller.
