Grand Choeur Dialogue composed by Eugene Gigout (1844-1925). Arranged by Karl Hinterbichler. Trombone ensemble (8). For 6 tenor trombones and 2 bass trombones. Romantic. Advanced. Full score & set of parts. Published by Cherry Classics (CY.CC2152).
Gigout's wonderful "Grand Choeur" originally for Brass & Organ has been beautifully scored for 8 Trombones in 2 antiphonal choirs. The work is brilliant technically, majestic in breadth and sound, with rich harmonies. Both choirs battle for dominance with all "winning" at the Grand Finale. Scored for 6 Tenors and 2 Basses, the difficulty level is for very advanced ensembles. Tenor & Bass clefs are used and the highest notes are Db for the 1st part and pedal Ab for the Bass part. This work is a great "overture" to begin a program.
