Everyone knows the Brazilian song 'Tico-tico', one of the most famous Latin standards. The song is about a little bird in corn flour. The rhythmically lively melody forms the basis of a virtuoso arrangement for wind quintet by Prof. Andreas Tarkmann (Mannheim) in which all instrumentalists are assigned rewarding tasks. An ideal encore piece for wind quintets who wish to add 'a special touch' to their programme.
