Sonata for Brass Sextet
2 trumpets, horn, trombone, bass trombone, tuba
Specially composed for Stanislav Suchanek and the Czech Philharmonic Brass Sextet, as a token of the composer´s gratitude for the wonderful interpretation of his Sonata for Eight Horns by the Czech Philharmonic Horns.
Extract from the concert programme: ´....The composer was so pleased with their performance that he dedicated a new work for our artists - the Sextet for Brass instruments, the premiere of which we shall hear today. The music has contrasting parts and demands top qualities from all six players. The audience will appreciate its unusual sound and compositional brilliance. We can now look forward to a similar event in the next season of the Czech Philharmonic Concert Calendar - again a world premiere - Andrew Downes´ Concerto for 4 Horns and Symphony Orchestra.´
