Fundamental Orchestral Brass

Brass I combines the basic brass instruments as solo instruments and in corresponding ensembles (3 trumpets, 3 trombones, 4 French horns). The four soloists are masters of their trade. Trumpet player Freddy Staudigl, hornist Marcus Schmidinger, and trombone player Johann Schodl all are foundation members of the renowned ensemble “Brassissimo” and are not only active with their quintet but also as soloists and orchestral musicians on an international level. In addition to his virtuosic command of the tuba, Christoph Kiene is also internationally known as a lecturer.

Apart from the existing articulations of the Pro Edition, this Vienna Instruments Collection also provides fast Interval Performances in legato and marcato, Performance Trills, arpeggios (major, minor, and diminished in legato and staccato) and mordents. Trumpet and trombone now offer the complete playing techniques, muted not only as solo instruments, but also in the ensembles. Among the specialties are the trumpet ensemble’s “out of tune” sustains, as they happen now and then in real orchestral situations. The three trumpet players don’t hit the note exactly at the beginning – a beat frequency ensues which is corrected as the tone progresses, eventually resulting in a clean homophony. Furthermore, the trumpets feature “rips & falls”. And the trombone ensembles, too, offer a specialty; clusters of three notes with half tone intervals are available in staccato (two variations), sustained, crescendo und diminuendo (in two tone lengths), sforzato, and even as Repetition Performances.
