    "Brassquiem (For a Stuck Mouthpiece")

    All,

    Here is my just-completed "Brassquiem (For A Stuck Mouthpiece)".

    Brass players will understand the title.

    Three first trumpets
    Three second trumpets
    Three horns
    Three 'bones
    One tuba

    The instruments are a combination of GPO and VSL

    Regards,
    Larry G. Alexander

    Perhaps uncharacteristically somber for you, Larry;
    but a hansomely made requiem.

    Well done.

    My best,

    There MUST be some hidden joke as I always experience with your music, but this time I didn't hear it. Anyway you managed to wake me up.

    There is no musical joke associated with this composition.

    During my teenage years, a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, I played the baritone horn (euphonium) in my school band. I was constantly getting the mouthpiece stuck in the instrument, which made it unremovable, of course. To prevent this, we would put a very light coat of vaseline on the part of the mouthpiece that inserted into the instrument itself. No more stuck mouthpieces. The brass players, who are members of this forum, can relate to this, I'm sure.

    Thanks for listening.

    Hey Larry, I enjoyed this piece. I love how this and your other pieces tend to sound like italian baroque era pieces combined with what I would describe as a spanish style (perhaps similar to the style of 19th spanish guitar music?) creating a whole new unique style. Thank you for writing and sharing this piece.

    You are certainly welcome, young man.

    Thanks for listening and thank you for your entertaining harpsichord performances. Very enjoyable!

    I'm a little late to the concert, Larry, but am glad there was still a seat left. It was said this is a bit uncharacteristically somber for you--good observation, but still distinctly from the admirable Alexander music factory you have set up down there Texas way. Solid work as always, Larry - Thanks.

    Randy
