  • Borishansky, Elliot

    Three Mosquitoes (1967) [w/slapstick]

    Complete title is "3 Mosquitoes Find That They Are Reunited After a Convention in Atlantic City, New Jersey." 20th Century. Flutter tonguing, asymmetrical meters, brief aleatoric sections, harmon mute required. Amusing theatrical responsibilities such as making nervous side-to-side head movements and acting astonished when finally removing the harmon mutes and hearing the pure un-muted trumpet sound for the first time. Challenging rhythms, some large interval leaps, first trumpet range ascends to a high C# above the staff. A humorous, yet sophisticated addition to any program! -pc
