Three improvisatory pieces.

These are old pieces of mine (dating from the late 80s)  which I generally play in a semi-improvisatory manner (especially the last third or so). The sheet music is essentially a "snapshot" -- a transcription of one particular performance.  

I've been struggling a bit with notating these accurately while still making them playable. For the most part, I've erred on the side of accuracy, but I think I would have great difficulty playing these well, if I didn't compose them myself.

Call for Brass Trio Repertoire

in Brass

As part of our (not sure what to call it, so might just call it) undergraduate program, a chamber music group has been created with;

1 trumpet (or flügelhorn or cornet)
1 trombone (euphonium, bass trombone or alto trombone is also available)
1 tuba (in Eb)

The level is conservatoirial, and as this is part of our education, a challenging level is appreciated. The challenge, however, is that I need to present the pieces to the group by the end of March, to be able present a proper rendition before the end of the semester.

I cannot promise that all of your pieces will be played, and I can't give an estimate on how many pieces we can get through; but if you want an opportunity for your music to be performed, this is perhaps the thing for you.
