New trumpet ensemble sound files
Hello, all -
Once again, I have descended into my basement to record some small ensemble stuff and have put two new pieces/sound files up on the StewMuse Publications web page.
"The Nightingale" by Thomas Weelkes, for trumpet trio
"Las Trompetas Matadoras" by me, for trumpet quartet
Go to: http://www.stewmuse.com/MP3.html
Both pieces are excellent for younger groups, with "Trompetas" adding some meter changes and dramatic flair. Both are about 2 minutes long. Lots of other files, as well. Check em out!
I look forward to seeing many of you at the ITG conference in Denver next week!
Michael Stewart, DMA
The answer is... AIR!

Is the MP3 the whole version? You said it was short -- but I didn't time it. If that was the full version, I was "expecting" it to go on. Maybe that is a sign I was enjoying it.
Thanks for the input, Jim. Yes, that's the whole baby. It was written specifically for a high school quartet's solo and ensemble performance, hence, the "two minutes and were out" timing!
