The Concerto in D minor is a truly exciting addition to the double brass quintet repertoire. This arrangement has been taken from an organ work by Bach. It is one of the transcriptions from a set of 12 concertos for strings and basso continuo by Vivaldi entitled Lâ€™Estro Armonico. The transition from organ to brass makes the piece all the more exciting adding additional colours to Vivaldiâ€™s original writing. The slow movement features the piccolo trumpet with the trumpets and trombones adding rhythmic chords in cup mutes. A guaranteed success in a recital or concert program and combined with the natural acoustics of a church, this powerful music could be the central work in a brass choir program.
