    "Brassado"

    Fellow Music Peeps,

    This is my brash, all-brass "Brassado".

    Instrumentation: three trumpets, two French horns, two 'bones and one tuba

    Regards to everyone.

    I enjoyed your Bassado Larry.

    An interesting and different brass line up. I've only heard the baritone used for the lower end in a brass ensemble but the tuba was definitely the star on this one.

    Hi Larry,

    Thanks for this magnificent dialogue between trumpet and tuba. The prominent role of the latter is somewhat surprising (and challenging), and it is a masterful example of good counterpoint. The rest of the brass ensemble are almost overwhelmed with the braver of the two main performers and they stay modestly in the background.

    What a fine start of this day!

    Haven't heard that much brass interaction. Quite lively, Very good interaction, with the instruments more 'sharing' the spotlight.

    As a trumpet major, I can say that this would be a LOT of fun to play. The trumpets seem a bit heavy on the legato effect, but that is purely interpretive (as well as software dependent) - wow it really is quite spectacular.

    I don't know how he does it, but everytime I listen to some of his compositions my mood gets better and better. Great combination of instruments and as Max said: a surprising discussion between two instruments.

    Greetings,
