Gathering of the Armies on the River Scheldt (Friedman) [443.01 w/timpani]
Romantic. Opera. This exciting excerpt from Lohengrin is uniquely arranged by Jay Friedman, principal trombonist of the Chicago Symphony. The off-stage presentation of both trumpet and trombone sections for the opening makes the piece a unique way to open a concert. The climactic buildup from off-stage trumpet calls to a hair-raising final section makes this one of THE most exciting pieces in the repertoire. For 4 trumpets, 4 horns, 3 trombone, 1 tuba and timpani. Score & parts.
