Pythagoras is often thought of as the 'father of harmony.' He believed that mathematics could explain everything, including music. On the basis that playing with notes is just playing with audible numbers, I had a go at walking with Pythagoras.
So what does it take to compose a piece of music for a woodwind ensemble? I took a song with the feel of a traditional show tune and arranged it for flute, oboe, clarinet and bassoon. It cwas a lot of fun.
