The Work

The Brass Quintet is in 4 continuous movements. The Scherzo, which comes second, is a Rondo mainly in 5/ 8 time, the 1st Episode being an English folk-dance tune, the 2nd a canon between horn and tuba, and the 3rd a rhythmical transformation of a song from Bizet's "Carmen". In the last movement, which is jazz influenced, each of the five instruments has a solo on a "12-bar blues" harmonic progression.

1. Andante flessibile (3'30)
2. Scherzo vivace (”Hunt the Squirrel”), Habañera from “Carmen” (2'45)
