|Albam|| Geological Survey
20th Century. Jazz. Composed for Emory Remington and the Eastman Trombone Choir in the 1960's, this work uses stylistic elements from the rock and jazz idioms, elements that were not typically found in the traditional "legit" music of the time. Remington embraced the work in accordance with his belief that his students should be capable of meeting every type of performance demand. This work was recorded by the Eastman Trombone Choir on their landmark 1971 LP, The Eastman Trombone Choir, and later re-released on the 1996 CD The Legacy of Emory Remington and the Eastman Trombone Choir. The performance is directed by Rayburn Wright, then director of Jazz Studies at the Eastman School.
As the title suggests, this work is an exploration of some of the sounds that were emerging in rock music. Having more of a Funk character, no one will ever confuse this work with anything from Buddy Holly or The Beatles. The funk and fusion sounds of Chicago or Earth, Wind & Fire might make a better comparison. The elements are similar, including (especially) rhythms, open "power chord" harmonies and an agressive tempo.
Geological Survey is set for twelve trombones in three separate TTTB choirs. Straight mutes are required.

|Bach|| Contrapunctus 10 Variant (Kelleher)
Baroque period. Formerly titled "Contrapunctus 14," this work is actually a variant of Contrapunctus 10 and now carries the title "Contrpunctus 10 Variant." It is definitely not number 14, well known as the final, unfinished Contrapunctus of the "Art of the Fugue." This work has obtained the number "14" most likely as a publication error made sometime after Bach's death. We know an early keyboard edition, edited by Carl Czerny (1791-1857) included this Contrapunctus 10 Variation as "Contrapunctus 14." This error was propogated in the titling of this edition. Regardless of its pedigree, this work is solid and substantial, and as a variant of 10, employs all the features of the other fugues of the collection. All of the Contrapuncti were originally written in 4-part SATB open score form, and are now believed to have been intended for performance on the harpsichord. This transcription is in the original key of Dm.

The complete title is Variations sur une Chanson de Canotier. This is an original work, written in 1965 for the Montreal Brass Quintet. A true "Theme & Variations" setting, it is in seven movements (theme followed by six variations). Each of the variations are quite elaborate, making use of mixed meter, no meter, and contemporary performance techniques such as flutter tongue and wide range half-valve glisses. As such, this is a work for the advanced quintet that has strong ensemble skills (variation V alternates between 3/4 and "follow the leader" free meter).

|Edwards|| Introductory Studies in Tenor/Alto Clef
Subtitled "Before Blazhevich," this book uses a mixture of exercises and short etudes to help teach tenor and alto clef quickly and effectively. Using a system of "guidepost notes," students learn a few easily recognizable pitches and then progress smoothly to more challenging material. The first main section of the book focuses on tenor clef (75 exercises); the second on alto clef (36 exercises). Six final etudes use all three clefs. Special sections are devoted to the skills of reading B-flat treble clef and bass clef transposed as tenor clef down an octave. Unlike other popular methods, these original exercises and etudes avoid rote learning and "playing by ear." Most of the etudes include pedagogical commentary and also serve as good musical character studies. Melodies sometimes take unexpected turns to keep students on their toes. Can also be used as sight-reading practice for more advanced students. 56 pages.
"Great book, well organized. A very interesting and useful step by step method to learning clefs. Particularly useful is Brad's idea of guidepost notes. Highly recommended!"
|Edwards|| Lip Slurs-Exercises for Tone & Technique
Lip Slurs is an 84-page comprehensive supplement for any trombone (or euphonium) player wishing to build technique and improve tone quality. The difficulty ranges from basic to virtuoso. It includes three main sections:
1. Slow Slurs - To build tone, improve range and develop control;
2. Fast Slurs - To build facility throughout the range of the instrument;
3. Lip Slur Melodies - Etudes reminiscent of the Bordogni vocalizes with an interesting twist: all the legato phrases can be played completely with natural lip slurs.
In his book "Lip Slurs," Brad Edwards has taken an important part of the trombone player's daily routine and added clarity to it. His approach is sensible, the exercises are comprehensive and the result is undeniably positive. Kudos to Brad Edwards for this excellent addition to the trombone repertoire; he has brought the concept of the lip slur forward to the post-modern trombonist who may have mistakenly thought that he already understood the subject well enough.
"I think it is the best comprehensive lip slur book I have ever used. I would recommend this book for all levels beginning through professional and tenor through bass, just great!"
I've been making my way through your Lip Slurs book, and I'm really excited about it. You have hit the nail on the head with this approach, and I think it will become a staple in the etude repertoire. Every chance I get, I've been telling trombone players to watch for its publication. You should consider putting it in treble clef and selling it for trumpet and horn players. Consider how many books we play on trombone that were originally for trumpet or horn.
|Ewald|| Quintet No 1, op 5 (Miller)
Russian born Victor Ewald (1860-1935) was not a musician by trade. Rather, he was an engineer who had music as his advocation. An amateur cellist and hornist, he wrote several brass quintets for the conical brasses common in his day. One presumes he took part in their performance as well. This edition of this popular work has been edited by Donald Miller from the original version (2 cornets, altohorn, tenorhorn, and tuba) for the modern brass quintet of 2 Bb trumpets, F horn, trombone, and tuba. Set in three movements (Moderato; Adagio non troppo lento; Allegro moderato) the Quintet is a staple in the literature, requiring strong individual and ensemble performance skills.
|Faure|| Pavane, op 50 (Bollinger)
Faure's popular Pavane here transcribed for six tenors and two basses (or alto, five tenors & two basses). All tenor parts are in tenor clef. Requires a strong first player as the range reaches high F#.
|Frackenpohl|| Brass Trio [111.00]
Four movement concert level work: Prelude (lively march feel), Air (lyrical), Scherzo (waltz in one), and Finale (slow intro to march tempo). Moderate range (horn does go into bass clef briefly), octave slurs, some meter shifts. pleasing melodies which modulate mid-phrase. Written for the Philadelphia Brass Trio in 19. Score & parts. Duration: 10' 50".

|Fux|| Sonata a3, E.68 (Weiner)
For 2 violins, trombone & basso continuo. A very nice piece that was probably written shortly before Fux' appointment as court composer in Vienna. It is somewhat similar to the Bertali sonatas for the same formation. This sonata has never been published before, and is thus not the same work as published by Kagarice Brass Editions.
|ENS101||Mixed Chamber, 4 Parts||$18.00|
|Gabrieli|| Canzon Noni Toni (Fennell) [633.00 in 3 choirs]
This transcription by Frederick Fennell of Gabrieli's Canzon Noni Toni in Twelve Voices utilizes three identical choirs. Each choir consists of a brass quartet comprised of 2 trumpets in Bb, F horn, and tenor trombone. The work is a classic example of the echo technique for which Gabrieli is so well known, with the three choirs echoing one another right from the outset. The work is in 4/2 and is 77 measures in length. It has been edited by Mr. Fennell for dynamics, articulations, and phrasing.

20th Century/Tonal. One of the earliest modern works specifically written for the trombone choir. The Canzona evokes images of Gabrieli while using a modern, but very tonal harmonic structure.

|Hartley|| Caprice (1967)
Single movement work employing active quick rhythms and some mixed meter. Piano and trumpet have many contrasting episodes. Written for Robert Levy, a champion of new music for trumpet. 130 measures in length at quarter = 120.

|Haugland|| Rondo Breve
Composed in 1965, Rondo Breve has become a popular trumpet trio, appearing on contest lists and recitals. The work is indeed short as the title implies, with all 82 bars in one movement. The combined range is compact (trumpet 1 ranges e1 to a2; trumpet 3 ranges a to d2) allowing this piece to be performed by both intermediate and advanced trumpeters. It is graded as a "3" on the New York list (out of a range of 1 to 6, 6 being the most difficult).
|Haydn|| Achieved is the Glorious Work (Miller)

|Hessen|| Intrada (Miller)
Moritz von Hessen (1572-1632) wrote this work for 4 cornetti. The "cornet" of Hessen's day was a wooden instrument much like a modern recorder, but with a cupped mouthpiece and wrapped in leather. It had a gentle yet clear tone, and because of its fingerhole construction, was fully chromatic. This edition, extracted from Das Erbe Deutscher Musik Landschaftsdenkmale Kurhessen, for modern trumpets is set in the key of F (G if performed on Bb trumpets). It has been edited for phrasing and dynamics. Set in 4/2, the rhythms are easy to perform, and the range of the first part does not go above top space G. The fourth part is required to perform many low G's and one low F.

|Holst|| Jupiter Chorale, from The Planets (DePaolo)
A straight forward transcription of the stately chorale section from the Jupiter movement of The Planets.

This setting was used as the bridal march at the arranger's wedding. Includes an optional repeat and a cut for perfect processional timing. Also known as the (Methodist) hymn tune 900 "I Vow to Thee My Country", "O God of All Creation" or "O God Beyond all Praising."
