Brass Quintet E-Flat Cornet,Euphonium,Horn,Trombone,Trumpet,Tuba - Level 4 - Digital Download

SKU: A0.817124

Composed by D. S. McCosh. Arranged by Charles Decker. 19th Century,Chamber,Historic,Patriotic,Romantic Period. 33 pages. Charles Decker Music Press #3546515. Published by Charles Decker Music Press (A0.817124).

This original overture from the post Civil War brass band era adds to Americana programming with an exciting musical alternative to the popular melody and dance arrangements played by the all-brass bands of the mid and late 19th century. This centennial musical celebration from 1876 is scored for traditional brass band instruments (E-flat and B-flat cornets, E-flat alto horn, baritone, tuba) but includes alternate parts B-flat cornet/trumpet for E-flat cornet and F horn for E-flat alto horn. The audio file is an actual brass quintet performance of the entire work and not a computer playback of the score.
