Arranged by Stephen Wick, this is show piece for two solo piccolo trumpets and is a sumptuous alternative to the Purcell. For advanced students and professionals. Review: "A brief transcription that could be used as a concert opener or as the last piece before the intermission. It is a technically challenging work for all of the instruments and will require good flexibility and range from all players. It is tastefully done and recommended." – Barton Cummings September 1994
A leading free-lance tuba player, he comes from a family of brass players and started his professional career at age 17. He studied music at the University of Surrey and graduated with 1st class honours. He has worked with major symphony and chamber orchestras. In 1992 he took up the post of Professor of Tuba at the London College of Music.
Difficult but rewarding arrangements that require trumpet players who can change from the B flat trumpet to the piccolo trumpet with ease. The trombone plays 'second horn' in all the horn call type figures and the tuba part requires some nimble playing. Stephen Wick's excellent arrangements have been heard around the world in his performances with the English Brass Ensemble. For advanced student groups, studios and professionals.
Arranged by Tom Whitehurst, this is a joyful and descriptive solo for Tuba, as it tries to emulate the movement of an elephant. For secondary schools, colleges, professionals, amateurs and community performing groups.
This attractive and well laid out piece, by Essex composer Alan Danson, is generally tonal and contains interesting rhythmic interplay and changes of time to keep performers (and listeners!) on their toes.
