Taxin, Ira Quintet

Brass Quintets

  • Taxin, Ira

    Quintet [211.01]

    20th century (1973). This challenging work by Ira Taxin is dedicated to the Empire Brass Quintet and features asymmetrical and changing meters, sudden dynamic changes, rapid tonguing, and flutter tonguing, and much more. Most notably, the composer includes sophisticated rhythmic combinations to the extent that he sometimes includes cues and partial scores in the parts to make coordination of the ensemble easier. A great challenge for a mature group. Trumpet parts in C. Harmon mute required for trumpets, some bass clef sections for the horn, and some tenor clef sections in the trombone part. Duration: 11:00 minutes. -pc
