Featured solos by euphonium, horn, cornet and first trumpet make this work interesting for all the performers. Elgars haunting melody flows through the ensemble finally reaching the climax at the very end. This is a great piece to show off the ensembles musicality, blend and balance. Relatively easy parts for most players make this an ideal selection for a point on the program possibly between two loud and technical pieces for a more calm and relaxed brass sound.
This piece is also available for double brass quintet - catalog number DBQ9911.
