Hugh Wood: Funeral Music for Brass Quintet: Brass Ensemble

Score Only | Brass Ensemble
Composer Hugh Wood
Publisher Chester Music
Instrumentation Brass Quintet
Op. 33 for Brass Quintet. Commissioned by the Three Choirs Festival, 1992 and premiered by the London Gabrieli Brass Consort.

This is a short piece for brass quintet in one movement. The polyphony of the introduction gives way to massed chords, which in turn lead to the first main section. This is a funeral march during which all the instruments have solos in turn. The trombone is first, then trumpet I; horn; later in duet with trumpet II; finally there is long solo for the tuba.

The second section is a series of fanfares on trumpets, joined by the horn, which alternate with successive phrases of a chorale melody on the lower instruments - horn, trombone, and tuba. Mit Fried and Freud ich far dahin is Martin Luther’s masterly and very beautiful re-creation in German of the Nunc dimittus. The massed chords of the introduction then return, and the piece ends with the polyphony with which it began.
