Trombone in chamber music - quintets and sextets (includes brass quintets & choirs)

BROM BONES for 10-part brass choir by Howard J. Buss musically depicts the character and exploits of Washington Irving’s dashing prankster in The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. The musical ensemble consists of 4 Bb trumpets (an optional Eb part is included for  trumpet 1), one French horn, 3 tenor trombones, one bass trombone, and tuba. This entertaining composition is cast in 5 movements, the first two are interconnected:
       I. Overture   (2:00)
      II. The Smoke Out    (2.40)
      III. The Schoolhouse Caper  (2:00)
      IV. Ichabod’s Romance    (3:40)
      V. Night Encounter   (3:10)         
         Following the energetic and heroic Overture, in The Smoke Out tone clusters represent the buildup of smoke in Ichabod’s singing school. Chorale-like passages suggest the music of the singers in training. The movement ends in transition, as Brom Bones and his small band of pranksters gallop off to their next adventure. The third movement, The Schoolhouse Caper, combines very aggressive and topsy-turvy passages with humorous, plodding interjections. Ichabod’s Romance begins as a beautiful unaccompanied ballad which is abruptly disturbed by a cacophony of muted brass, suggesting the whining of Brom’s mocking dog. Beautiful hymn-like sections serve as the backdrop to heartfelt solo passages, which are again disturbed by Brom’s annoying dog. The movement ends as it began, with the beautiful  solo. The intense final movement, Night Encounter, depicts Ichabod’s frightening and fateful run-in with the Headless Horseman, suspected by some to be Brom Bones  in disguise. (14’30”)  Grade V.

WARP! (1994) for brass quintet by Robert J. Frank. The title was inspired by the term from Star Trek where warp engines would bend time and space to propel the ship at incredible speeds. Exploring relationships between time and space in a musical sense, this work begins with motives and fragments free-floating in space. These gradually build in energy and motion until coming into phase with one another. After this cadence, a motor section expands and develops the previous free-floating motives over driving, repeated patterns. As the speed increases, these motives fade in and out of phase with each other until the motives come back into phase at "warp speed" in the exciting conclusion.Warp! is a fun and exciting concert feature!  (3')   Grade V.
