Never a Bell

We are sticking with the modern, rhythmically complex works here as well as some smaller brass chamber ensembles.  This time, this is the brass trio with trumpet, horn, and trombone and is the more common brass trio variety.  The work is a piece called Trio for Trumpet, Horn, and Trombone by Vaclav Nelhybel.  It is a work in three movements, all of which can be found here, here, and here, and it is quite an active and fun work to put together and perform, especially on a recital.

Nelhybel’s music is very rhythmically active and difficult in this regard, but his music is far more technical than musical.  It is fun to work on and put together, though maybe not the most musically satisfying trio one has performed in their lifetime.  The performance itself is very good as well as the recording quality.  The trio is the The University of Maryland Brass Trio and this recording was released in 2010.
