Brass Quartet 2 with Snare

I just finished a new composition called Brass Quartet 2 with Snare, it’s located on the Winds page.  The instrumentation is trumpet, horn, trombone, tuba, and snare drum.

Becky listened to my first draft and commented on the darkness.  So I set about to brighten it up.  I think in the end she was happy with it.  The music has its serious parts, but there is also some light-hearted sections with some fun in it.

Although the process of creating new music can sometimes be a slow, wrenching process, at other times it can go quickly and in directions I had not foreseen.  Sometimes I don’t know where the music comes from, but it is usually surprising and rewarding in the end.
