I thought these might be of interest particularly to tuba players, as I used the cimbasso, euphonium, and (a little bit of) tuba in this recital.
cimbasso (Hornpipe...Renaissance-style music)
euphonium (Ingolf Dahl - Music for Brass Instruments)
euphonium (Plog - Mosaics)
tuba (Friedman - Four Freilachs)
With the untimely demise of trumpet virtuoso, Charlie Gates; Stanley Friedman, renowned composer, has been helping us out on 2nd trumpet.
Other personnel are John Schuesselin - trumpet, Caroline Kinsey - horn, Micah Everett - trombone.
Fantastic playing Joe! Thanks for posting. Euph blends great with the group.
The only thing missing is a 2 bone quintet (cough cough).
The Mississippi Brass played a Friedman concert about 10 years ago, including his "La Pittura" for solo trumpet and quintet. That might have been the piece that won an ITG award for original composition.
Charlie Gates was one of the finest players and mentors I have had the pleasure of working with. His daily warmup would literally stop traffic outside his office. Quite possibly the fastest Clarke studies on the planet. Random students and faculty would walk down the hallway, hear a flurry of notes, and just stop in their tracks to the sound of fingers flying. In academic meetings for the faculty at Ole Miss Charlie used to self deprecatingly say "play trumpet, and doors will open for you." He is sadly missed.
I can't remember for sure, but I believe there are some A's in that part...just a bit stratospheric for a tuba-pitched instrument...
Sounds great! Surprising how tuba ish the cim sounds with that weird layout.i'm with you on right horn for the job,regardless of convention.couldnt get Mahler 1 solo quiet enough to suit conductor.euph was just perfect for him.next year's contract arrived safely

The first time Joe brought the cimbasso to quintet rehearsal we thought he was joking. Then he just started playing amazingly as usual and we quit laughing. The students in the audience are always surprised, as they are expecting him to bury the entire group with epic low notes (which the cimbasso can certainly do). The instrument's warm sound at moderate dynamics is very pleasing, though.
The release of this l.p. roughly a half century ago bent modern ears towards "tuba in a brass quintet" playing Renaissance-era music.
Modern trumpets and trombones don't produce the sounds produced by instruments during the late 16th Century, but I believe they come closer than do wide-bore tubas and euphoniums.
I agree that the more trombonish sound is more historically accurate. It's just that one sees a cimbasso and thinks "I'm about to be pinned to the wall with the Low F of Power (LFoP)." To hear its capabilities at moderate dynamics is surprising at first.
I do like that Gabrieli album, though....
...so all the links (above) are dead...
...so much for "the cloud".
