Equinox – Large Brass Ensemble


Equal day, equal night, represented by double brass quintet, conical vs. cylindrical. Seating should be in an inverted V, with tuba on the outside left. Going up the left side, next to tuba is horn 3, then horn 2, horn 1 and cornet at the top of the inverted V. Coming down the right side is trumpet 1 at the top, trumpet 2, trombone 1, trombone 2 and bass trombone, facing tuba.

Brilliantly crafted to maximize the different timbres, the wide ranges and varying instrumental combinations, this is an impressive achievement accomplished with great skill and a welcome addition to the brass repertoire.

The sample score and mp3 excerpt include all three movements.
