Mississippi Brass Quintet recital segments

Postby bloke » Tue May 26, 2015 12:01 am

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)

With the untimely demise of trumpet virtuoso, Charlie Gates; Stanley Friedman, renowned composer, has been helping us out on 2nd trumpet.

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.

Hi Joe, Did you ever consider using cimbasso for the Dahl?

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...

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....
