    ROLLER COASTER for Brass Quintet

    A lot of up & down; twist & turns in this piece for 2 trumpets, horn, trombone & tuba.

    Thanks for listening, Dan.
    This is a challenging piece for all the parts.
    Not in extreme range for any instrument and no large leaps.

    Hi Gary,

    This is very nice brass writing, and a great contemporary sound. I'm sure any brass quintet would really enjoy playing this.

    The rendering is great, too.

    Best Regards,

    Jack

    Good piece. It has a nice pulse, the piece really moves forward. Not a sweet piece, no easy harmonies, but a very optimistic spirit nonetheless. Interesting sound. So, in all, a thrilling ride.

    Why the title roller coaster? I associate them with slow build-up and a quick attack of terror, followed by relief, whereas I found your piece to be happy all along...

    Well done!

    Thanks for listening, FL.

    The title came from a feeling that there were constant turns & up & downs ending rather abruptly.
