A ricercare is defined as an elaborate contrapuntal instrumental composition in a fugal or canonic style. This particular selection for 2 flutes and 2 clarinets fits that description exactly. The musical lines flow from part to part in this haunting slow work. This is a great piece to develop intonation, cohesiveness, and ensemble playing. This would also make a great warmup for a woodwind ensemble.
