for wind quintet Down-Hollow Winds is not so much concerned with instrumental style as with harmonic and rhythmic style and in particular the pentatonic mode, common to folk music the world over. It is divided into five movements: Pesante, Vivace, Lontano, Energico and Piacevole, each of which explores different and sharply-characterised aspects of the same, simple material.

Review quote

Next up is a delightful wind quintet, Down-Hollow Winds, in which the harmonic and rhythmic wellspring is folksier and pentatonic; there's one Ligeti-ish movement, again nothing to frighten the horses. * David Gutman, Gramophone, June 2016 *
