Franz Schubert – Valses nobles op. 77, D969

Arranged for Brass Quintet by Ivaylo Hristov.

Originally for piano, this collection of 12 waltzes was written for Viennese ballrooms a few months before the composer passed away. It is their lilting and distinctive Viennese rhythm, rubato, balanced phrases, straightforward form, gliding middle voices, melodic suspensions, and unexpected harmonic subtleties that attract the listener.

    Paul Dukas – Fanfare preceding La Pιri

    Arranged for Brass Quintet by Ivaylo Hristov.

    Composed in 1912 to precede the ballet La Pιri and originally written for the entire brass section of the symphony orchestra, these brilliant Fanfares are performed independently on stage as arranged for brass quintet. Paul Dukas cleverly manages the sonority of brass instruments and their ability to sound pompous but also lyrical, convincingly delivering both rich harmonies and a complex polyphonic texture.

He draws a little mirror from his pocket and tries to look at himself and arrange his neckcloth by the moonlight.

    Arranged for Brass Quintet by Ivaylo Hristov.

    Since it is St. John's Night, a large number of people drop in across the bridge and fill the esplanade in a procession, carying a banner on which the effigy of the Corregidor is displayed. General dance, during which the old coxcomb is identified, and the miller and his wife are reconciled. The Corregidor, scoffed at by the crowd, has received so many cuffs that he lets himslef drop to the ground completely confounded. The people lay hold of him and joyously toss him on a blanket, like some rueful puppet. This is the final Jota from the ballet El sombrero de tres picos (1919), from Manuel de Falla.
