Hear this!

An Upper and a Lower

 

The upper layer has room for two trumpets

They call out in long phrases, abruptly cut short.

 

The lower layer has horn and trombone wrestling with a tuba

The expression is raw and messy, the instruments just have to stick to it.

 

It’s short, powerful and possibly beautiful.

A challenge:

Hear this!

 

Composed for Stockholm Chamber Brass
