I have continued my fan-boy love of Logic Pro X and have been using the Klopfgeist for some fun (at least, more fun than normal) long tone practice... Here's the first video in my Logic Pro klopfgeist series!
I just had the chance to make a recording of new friend and Australian composer Brendan Collins' trombone quartet, Two Motets!
We played a very enjoyable piece and recital last night for the Composer's Society of Montgomery County. The piece, Danse Macabre, is by Jeffrey Bauer and is available from Balquhidder Music.
We have had, uh, a lot of time at home over the past few days while waiting for the big winter storm to pass. We only got about 20" at our house, but it was enough to keep us inside for a couple of days, and now we are out and enjoying it!
Valor Brass recorded a few tunes this past summer for fun - here's one we haven't necessarily put up on our site yet... We have always loved programming Ludwig Mauer's Three Pieces... This is a great piece for a strong high school or college quintet, and we program it quite often on recitals. The Mauer is a great vehicle for young players to learn the fundamentals of ensemble playing. Enjoy and please share!
