Joint Brass Recital

The Luther College brass area recently gave a joint recital featuring the works of Paul Hindemith. Our quintet worked up a fine arrangement of the Symphonic Metamorphosis themes to end a recital of four Hindemith sonata: trumpet, althorn (performed on alto trombone), horn, and trombone. We had a great time preparing the recital and preparing works our students bring to lessons and perform in recitals regularly. This experience was a great reminder of how difficult the works of Hindemith are and what a pleasure it is to perform the works. This article in the Luther College Chips helps to put some of these thoughts in place. Fun times with a fun group of players!
