Quintessence II (piano reduction)

Arranger/Composer: 

Gillingham, David R.

Item Code:
11600
Publisher: 
C. Alan Publications

Building on the work Quintessence, Gillingham adds a first movement that utilizes more mallet percussion and woodwind (piano) in flowing themes and soft harmonies. A stark contrast to the second movement which has a decidedly jazz feel in the solo parts.
