Recording

A live performance by Boulder, Colorado's Tonic Brass, May 11, 2002. (6MB MP3 file)

Suggestions for Performance

   Performance notes are included in the score. The piece portrays a "competition" between the lower and upper brass instruments, including distress caused when a trumpet loses his place in the music.

 

Of musical interest, an aural rhythmic illusion is created near the end when an extended standard 4/4 section in contrast sounds like the offbeat section.
