One piece a week - A little of your time, please! : Twilight Glow / Ken'ichi Masakado [Brass Octet]

Posted by 梅本周平 on

We will be introducing one Golden Hearts Publications piece per week for a while.

Please give me a few moments of your time!

Here's this week's piece.

Twilight Glow / Ken'ichi Masakado [Brass Octet]

Program notes :
This is a brass octet piece commissioned by a high school band in Fukuoka City in 2004. In response to the request at the time of the commission, this piece has a jazz taste and is different from the usual instrumentation. The range of each instrument (with the exception of trombone 1 and tuba 1) is kept within a reasonable range.
It was twilight when I went to the composition meeting, and the inspiration for the piece came from the soft light that I saw from the window. However, I did not try to describe the scene. Rather, the work may express the emotions of the town and its people, who become more animated as the darkness of night approaches.

(Ken'ichi Masakado)

Instrumentation (Parts included in the set):
Trumpet in Bb 1
Trumpet in Bb 2
Horn in F 1
Horn in F 2
Trombone 1
Trombone 2

We look forward to receiving your order!
