Recap of Listening Presentation

A week or so late, but here is a list of the tracks I played with some additional information. I've included spotify links

Take 9 Antiphonal Fanfare
-Kerry Turner, composer.
-The performers included the American Horn Quartet and the 5 horns of the New York Philharmonic from 2004

Sous Le ciel de Paris – Berlin Philharmonic Horn Quartet
-The horn of the Berlin Philharmonic-Stefan Dohr, Fergus McWilliam, Stefan de Leval Jezierski, and Sara Willis from their 2011 album.
-There are some funny little musical quotes all over this album. This particular track sneaks in a little bit of Eroica.

Sacrae symphoniae
-From the National Brass Ensemble's 2015 all-Gabrieli release with T. Higgins' arrangements.

Don't Go Breaking My Heart
-Herb Alpert & the Tijuana Brass from their 1966 album S.R.O.
-After looking into this, I learned that Alpert would often dub his own playing over his own playing for a fuller sound.

La virgen de la Macarena
-By Bernardino Bautista Monterde featuring the legendary Rolf Smedvig on trumpet.
-I particularly love this track because of how unapologetically crazy the trumpet sound is. And of course the ensemble is fantastic.

-From the CSO Brass and their 2011 LIVE album. Arrangement by Bruce Roberts.

Pines of the Appian Way
-Recorded in 2008 also LIVE with another all-star group, the Summit Brass.

Berceuse & Finale from the Firebird 
-Another LIVE recording of the Denver Brass from 2012, a group made up mostly of the brass faculty at the Lamont School of Music at the University of Denver, my alma mater.

Wiener Philharmoniker Fanfare 
-One of my all-time favorite pieces to perform and listen to. This is yet another LIVE recording from 2015 with the brass of the Vienna Philharmonic under the baton of Zubin Mehta.

Double Trio: II. Tempo rubato e andante
-An finally, the strangest of this list, a 1993 recording of a William Kraft piece done by the LA Horn Club with guests coincidentally under the direction of Mehta.
