5 pieces of 4 and more

The collection of pieces presented here is especially aimed at ‘classical’ ensembles looking for music that allows for more flexibility of interpretation, more input from the players, and improvisation with the whole ensemble. In this book you will find 5 pieces for quartet, or rather, 5 pieces for 4 voices, as each voice can be played by multiple instruments. All 5 pieces have sections where the musicians are invited to improvise using a given set of notes and/or rhythms. There are specific tips, tricks and directions for each piece which can be found on the page before a piece starts.
