Album Notes
Everyone remembers Aesop’s meaningful stories from childhood. Aesop, a fabulist or writer of fables, lived in Greece in the 6th century B.C. This unique mini-album recounts five of Aesop's fables. In each story, the two main characters are musically represented by a particular pair of the woodwind quintet instruments (flute, oboe, clarinet, french horn, and bassoon). The tales are told by the music and narration together; their rich interplay will intrigue and delight listeners of all ages!

This studio recording of Aesop's Fables by Rebecca Oswald features the Arrieu Wind Quintet (Jill Pauls, flute; Annalisa Morton, oboe; Carol Robe, clarinet; Mike Hettwer, horn; Mike Curtis, bassoon), and JoJo Jensen, narrator. All are based in Eugene, Oregon, U.S. The quintet was recorded in January 2011, and the narration in September 2013; Michael Charles McDonald of Syntharts Studio engineered both sessions.

Since 1999 Aesop's Fables, the concert work, has enjoyed many live performances by quintets around the U.S. and abroad, in concert halls, schools, libraries, and other venues. The printed score and parts are available for purchase from Rebecca Oswald.
