Brass Circus

Brass Circus is an ensemble for brass nonet, 3 trumpets, 2 French horns (with alternate 4th trumpet), 2 trombones, euphonium, and tuba. It was inspired by artwork depicting the Circus in Montmartre, Paris at the turn of the 19th Century. Artists such as Marc Chagall, Edgar Degas, created a mélange of action, color, and vibrant energy depicting the circus clowns, acrobats, and aerial performers of the famous circus.

Inspirations in C (includes free study guide)

Inspirations in C is a collection of fourteen pieces for pianists at an intermediate level that explore the tonal center of C and its related modes across contemporary styles.

While Number One is intentionally repetitive in a Minimalist style, the fourteen pieces express numerous influences - the sweet, often plaintive folk song flavors of Bertok; Mahler's delicious harmonic shifts from major to minor; Kabalevsky's playful bright staccato; the exotic tinge of a Golijov piece.
