Musical clouds configure and reconfirgure themselves. The sextet,
divided into two trios, plays through specific musical material,
but is allowed certain freedoms in rhythm and coordination. I
imagine the rich monochrome space above a broad skyline, never
the same, but always the same.
(Philadelphia) sky sketch was written for 'The Brass Project', a newly formed sextet from the Curtis Institute of Music, who invited thirty composers to contribute pieces to their inaugural performance and recording projects.
Instrumentation: The work is for two trios of instruments. It is scored, in this version, for 2 Bb trumpets, 2 trombones, horn and tuba, however, it can be adapted for any grouping of sustaining instruments, with appropriate ranges.
Duration: 3 min.
Difficulty: Medium — There are some ensemble challenges in this piece, arising from the rhythmic freedom of the scoring.
Commission note: Written for 'The Brass Project' with thanks to Nick DiBerardino
First performance: 8 May 16. Philadelphia Art Alliance, The Brass Project, USA
