Adagio in Ab for Brass Quintet

Instrumentation: Brass Quintet (Two trumpets, horn, trumpet, tuba)

Duration: 3’30”


Program Note:

My first composition, this piece is an exploration of tonal harmony and suspensions/anticipations, featuring the minor 9th chord as the principal motif. Originally written for my high school’s senior brass quintet, this piece is perfect for intermediate ensembles working on intonation, balance, and blend.
