Weep & Wail for brass quintet (2003)


2 trumpets, horn, trombone & tuba (may substitute bass trombone)

Duration: 5'

Weep & Wail  is a short bluesy work for brass quintet.  Long lines and space between the pulses give lots of room for each player to stretch their legs.  This piece builds from quiet chords and space to a slow, driving climax that has real muscle to it.
