Misc. Comments

Canons for brass… not the type that go boom fortunately. This is a favorite form of mine – so strict, so precise, everybody does the same thing but at different times, the art both of how they combine harmonically while making a whopping good tune. No easy task, but fun fun to play, fun to hear. The last one is perhaps the most inventive, both in the material and its development; it finally does stray from the strict canonic form. A well-deserved liberation, enjoyed fully!
