Programme Note:
Stewart Grant's Wind Quintet was jointly commissioned by the Quintette à vent Estria and the Ayorama Wind Quintet of Ottawa. It was first performed by both of these ensembles in 1999. It is a work that reflects the composer's love of nature, with the first movement being a Pastorale that both opens and closes in a quiet, contemplative mood. This is not simply an empty landscape, however, as we hear the calls and interplay of birds and other creatures - particularly in the middle section, which is very active and reaches a considerable climax before returning to the quiet mood of the opening. The second movement is a ittle Scherzo which is also very active, in a rether quirky way. In contrast, the Nocturne is once again quiet, but with a sense of brooding at the opening that gives way in turn to nostalgia and, in the end, to a sense of tranquil resignation.
