- Program Notes
- Contrapunctus II for Wind Ensemble was completed in 2020 and is a transcription by the composer of his Sonata No. 4 for piano. This wind ensemble version is scored for flute, oboe, English horn, Bb clarinet, bass clarinet, bassoon, French horn, C trumpet, trombone, and tuba. It is a challenging, even virtuosic foray into colorful and continually evolving instrumental combinations, unified by a highly rhythmic texture with moments of lyricism. Score and parts are available from Creative Spirit Online. Please go to www.creativespiritonline.com/product-category/robert-brooks/. If your organization is interested in premiering this work please contact the composer. The work is in one movement. Performance time is about 15 minutes. A virtual recording of “Contrapunctus II” is posted on www.soundcloud.com/robert-john-brooks.
