    Passacaglia [211.01]

    21st Century (2010). "Passacaglia is a work for brass quintet that tackles a style of composition rarely explored in brass chamber music repertoire. An ostinato subject is provided initially by the trombone, creating a quasi-minimalist chant-like atmosphere, as other motifs gradually evolve and emerge before disappearing back into the homophonic texture. A central trumpet duet suggests a new direction, yet hints of the original theme never fully subside. Another duet provides even greater agitation, but again fails to materialize as the theme gradually fades into the distance." Score & parts. -the publisher
