    Preludes (3) (Coulter) [211.01]

    Three Preludes by George Gershwin, originally published for the Piano in 1926, have been beautifully arranged for brass quintet by Robert Coulter. About 6 minutes in length, the preludes are "jazzy", "bluesy" and a lot of fun to play, plus, very entertaining for audiences. This arrangement is appropriate for advanced performers and is scored for 2 trumpets in b-flat, horn, trombone and tuba. Prelude No. 1 , "To Bill Daly" has a bluesy motif with a strong jazz feel. Prelude No. 2, "Blue Melody", is a melancholy song with a blues feel using lots of sevenths and a major/minor duality. Its middle section is more upbeat featuring the tuba. Prelude No. 3, "Spanish Prelude" features lots of syncopations and a battle between major & minor with the major winning out in the end. This work will make a fantastic addition to your concert. - the publisher
