German composer, Wilhelm Ramsöe (1837-1895) is best remembered for his compositions for brass. His Quartet No. 5 for 2 Cornets, Horn or Trombone, and Baritone is no exception.
As the final of five brass quartets by the composer, Quartet No. 5 remains prominent in the brass ensemble repertoire. Made of of four movements, each part contains a variety of exciting musical features. The movements are 1) Allegro Moderato, 2) Andante, Quasi Allegretto, 3) Scherzo, and 4) Finale, all of which contain edits by Robert King. For all advanced brass ensembles, Ramsöe's Quartet No. 5 is a sublime addition to the repertoire.
