I'm currently composing a brass quintet. One of the first major compositions I did when I was studying music was also a brass quintet. When I now return to the ensemble form it feels like something of a new start; not only for the reconnection with this early piece but also because i think I have some fresh ideas - especially on form, and also because I'm trying out a new method when composing (perhaps I can go into more details about this in a future post).
I've looked into the brass quintet repertoire a bit and it doesn't seem to be that much original compositions around - on the other hand quite a lot more or less successful arrangements and transcriptions for the ensemble (a transcription of Bach's violin concertos were very inspirational for me last time). If you know any piece you think I should take a look at please leave a comment below!
I also have the ambition to revise the first brass quintet which I still think have some merits. So hopefully I can soon publish two new original brass quintets...
Here I publish information of the music I've written. I also blog about my projects and thoughts about music in general.
I am a contemporary classical composer and compose music for classical musicians, but as you can see from my worklist I've also done other things - including live electronics, electroacoustic music (eam) and music for other types of ensembles (e.g. a jazz trio).
My works have been performed globally, including Europe, Asia and North America.
