Diabelli Project 140 - Woodwind Quintet

The Diabelli Project is about offering my weekly flash-composition sketches freely to all. Like Antonio Diabelli's theme, these sketches aren't great music. But perhaps (as in Diabelli's case) there's a Beethoven out there who can do great things with them.

This week's flash composition turns out to be the first woodwind quintet in the series. Without the 10-minute time limit, I would have developed the section beginning at measure five further. Still, I was surprised at just how far this sketch got before time ran out. 

As always, you can use any or all of the posted Diabelli Project sketches as you wish for free. Just be sure to share the results. I'm always curious to see what direction someone else can take this material.
