4 Sketches

4 Sketches

for brass quintet

Four Sketches for brass quintet (version 1989) was commissioned by Mel Jernigan and the St. Louis Brass Quintet (USA) and has undergone almost a complete metamorphosis since its premiere in St. Louis in 1988. With the exception of the lyrical third movement, the piece is fairly rhythmic, taking advantage of the capabilities of each instrument for a wide timbral and sound spectrum or expressive dissonances.
