Divertimento No. 6 (1972)

The solo saxophone and string ensemble explore many moods throughout the one-movement, multi-section work whose rhythmic interactions are infused with jazz. The saxophone demonstrates its versatility, particularly with the variety of special techniques, including flutter tonguing, slap tonguing, and quarter tones.

Solo With Orchestra, Band

Divertimento No. 7 (1979)

Weinzweig describes the work: "Divertimento No. 7 ... extends the traditional treatment of the horn through expanding its rhythmic and timbric potential. The horn (as protagonist) and the strings are assigned separate thematic identities."

Solo With Orchestra, Band

Divertimento No. 8 (1980)

Supported by a full orchestra, the solo tuba engages in dialogues with percussion and piccolo, and establishes varied moods through a solo blues movement, bird-song motives, and a ragtime movement.

Divertimento No. 10 (1988)

In keeping with Weinzweig’s quest for “true dialogue,” the piano and orchestra maintain two very different approaches: the string orchestra is slow-moving and introspective while the piano is buoyant and gregarious. The piano and orchestra never play together until the final of twelve continuous segments, which ends with a dramatic piano gesture.

Divertimento No. 11 (1990)

The work is an extended movement of 6 interconnected sections that extends the sonic voice of the English Horn beyond its traditional temperament: the dramatic, playful, a touch of blues, as well as a seldom revealed virtuosity.

Solo With Orchestra, Band

Swing out: Animations and Ruminations on a Double Reed (1995)

The bassoon converses with itself, using register, articulation, and a “dialogue” gesture to enact this exchange. This short work demonstrates the performer’s agility, expressive range, and dramatic sensibility.

Solo With Orchestra, Band

Divertimento No. 12 (1998)

The first, second, and final movements employ the woodwind quintet together, often in sharp contrast to the string orchestra; the other three movements highlight a member of the woodwind quintet. While the final movement employs the entire woodwind quintet, Weinzweig allows each instrument to shine in a series of accompanied cadenzas.
