    Intermezzo for Brass Quintet (free MP3 download)

    It's time for an mp3 download...

    The piece, "Intermezzo for Brass Quintet" is very small - only takes about a minute to play, yet I hold it rather highly myself It can also be found as track No. 3 on the CD Light On Your Path
    It's performed by the Brass Ensemble of the Danish Royal Guards, who recorded it in 2000. I'm going to upload the score (pdf) later. [edit: done]

    Download Intermezzo for Brass Quintet (1.6 MB, 192kbps mp3)

    Click here to download the score (90 KB pdf) (contact me for the parts)

    hmm... - that's a peculiar little piece... - some baroque-scholar would probably be thrilled with this continual "fortspinnung". it's "cute"... but a little "uneasy" i someway do to this contiual no-cadenza type of "intermezzo"...
    as to the hornplaying pleasing... well... - I think it's more fun for the trumpets as compared to the lowbrass "hoot hoooot" - but with that said... any addition to the repetoire for the brassquintet is very much appreciated
    the general style and ending somehow resembles Peter Schickele - in his pdq bach compositions...

    I'm glad you like it, Pamadu

    Corno....hmmm... well, I don't agree with your perception of it being "uneasy". It is very short, and thus you may not have time to get "adjusted", however, that's actually the point: It's like you get just a glimpse of the music, then it's gone...

    anyhow, I've uploaded score

    well... it's not that it's "uneasy" as such... might be a bad word in this context... - it IS a intermezzo and as such I think it fits nicely in that it not "dwells" and that it "keeps going"... - but somehow that's the same things that makes it a little, hmm... what's the word... "jiggly" heh... hmm... not really fitting either... - maybe a Danish expression like "så hold da i det mindste en lille (harmonisk) pause, for dælen da..." hehe - - I like it, it's not bad at all, and the style is also quite good, albeit "rustic" - there's one chord around 0.35 (where the horn has a little audible "movement" that dissonates a little, some seconds clashing, just to "abrupt" the "flow" a little - just before it "recaps" the beginning with the other trumpet taking some fanfare-like position and continues to accompany the group towards the end...

    EDIT... well somehow it always helps me to get a look at the music - and this time it made it a little more clear that the fact I might find it "uneasy" was the two bars you keep repeating over and over and over - as to Pauls comment on the "error free playing" I think there's a small stumble from one of the trumpets in the end of bar 9... - yeah... I'm a "clam"-buff - it's an environmental-illness

    EDIT 2: well, it grows on you... that's for sure... - I've been playing with bars 9-12 just to add that little extra "corno-overkill-fooling-around-with-other-people's-music" (all in good fun off cause, no "harm" intended neither composer nor work ) - if allowed I can post my "fooling-around" here later (else I'll probably just hit the delete button tomorrow when I wake up and see "the mess" I've made ) - I'm heading off to bed now - going to Sweden tomorrow for a little prolonged "out-back-Sweden" weekend... just to say hi to the mooses. heh...
    So have a nice moose-free weekend all of you

    Hi Frederik. i have tried as well as pamadu and all we can get when we hit the 'attachment' download button for the pdf is a notice asking us YES or NO to go to this site.
    http://activex.microsoft.com/ go to active x gallery.
    but we cannot find what we are supposed to download.the same thing was what happened when all the zelsoftware midis came in by hitsware.we have the latest active x and it has all components with it. very very strange regards Jamie.
    look at the number of views as compared to downloads,more downloads than views, and it seems to add 3 or more hits when we hit the button. one day we may get it

    BTW. i love the piece as well.it is well done and is 'one minute' of good sounding BRASS/HORNS Jamie.

    BTW. corno. never seen mooses up close here in Australia.take a few photos for us. pleaseeeeeeeeee Jamie

    I'm glad you like it too, Jamie.

    It seems that you have to have a newer version of acrobat reader and IE5 or higher for the attachments to work properly...

    Hep Frederik.
    Rigtig godt stykke. "light music".

    Må vi spille det med vores kvintet. vi har desværre ikke tube, men euphonium, men det skal nok kunne lade sig gøre.

    Først og fremmest velkommen til MIMF, Hornsalvig!

    Jeg er glad for a t du synes om mit "Intermezzo" for messingkvintet. Du og din kvintet skal være velkomne til at spille det (hvis I blot husker at fortælle det til KODA når I opfører det offentligt ), og det er også i orden at I omlægger Tuba-stemmen til Euphonium - det skal nok komme til at lyde godt alligevel.

    Flot Salvig
    Hvis jeg nu tager min tandpasta med næste gang, så har vi en tube. Hrmm - åndsvag stavefejl.

    Tak for velkomsten Frederik. Jeg har jo selv musik registreret, så du kan tro jeg ikke glemmer KODA. Dem der gør er nogle...

    Jeps corno - hornister rykker

    pyh - konkurrence i ensemble Midt-Vest i næste uge - øve-øve-øve-øve-øve-øve-øve-øve...

    så jeg er nok ikke på nettet så meget, men bagefter vender jeg stærkt tilbage

    Velkommen til mimf

    Der er en tråd herinde, hvor man kan fortælle lidt om sig selv og du kan læse om os andre
    Syntes der er ved at være lige lovligt mange hornister herinde (en, to, mange..)
