  • January 15, 2009 I agree with the Eb addition.

    I agree with Dr. Brent Alexander's review suggesting that the entire solo be played on an Eb. The arrangement's split of the solo between two Bbs is a bit awkward, although it still is playable. And yes, a doctoral degree in music isn't needed to see why...

    it is scored the way it is, but it does help when it comes to making useful suggestions. AND he listed his name, which gives his review more integrity and credibility. Anyway, good arrangement - happy playing!

  • July 22, 2008 Good Closer

    It doesn't take a doctoral music degree to figure out the reason why it was scored for 2 Bb trumpets is because they want people to play it. There aren't many groups that play with a Eb trumpet now. This has a nice tuba part (with a section...

    that has 16th notes and an ad lib section later). It is in cut time and starts out in the key of Eb but ends in Ab.

  • August 29, 2007 the ONLY concert closer

    There aren't that many good arrangements of SSF for quintets, but this one is GREAT. The only complaint I have is that the piccolo solo is divided between both Bb trumpets. I recommend one player playing the entire solo on Eb - other than that - GREAT arrangement, as expected by...

    Frackenpohl.
