Description


The Baroque Wind Band and Wind Ensemble is the third volume in Dr. David Whitwell's ground breaking thirteen volume History and Literature of the Wind Band and Wind Ensemble series. Whitwell's meticulous scholarship reveals the continuous history of the wind ensemble, from its earliest roots to the nineteenth century - an unbroken tradition of wind music that music scholars have never been fully able to appreciate until now. This volume includes: 1] the change of instrumentation from Renaissance consorts to the new modern instruments; 2] the Hautboisten band and its function as a bridge between the repertoire of Renaissance consorts and the repertoire of Harmoniemusik bands; 3] the transition of the concerto da camera of the Hautboisten repertoire to the Classic Period symphony and partita and the Hautboisten Ouverture to the Classic Period Divertimento; 4] the first modern appearance of military bands.
