Festival of New Trumpet Music Makes a Stop at Roulette

From NYTimes.com:

It’s hard to imagine that a work consisting of 52 trumpets could be a “chamber” version of anything, but Henry Brant’s imagination was large scale. He originally wrote “Flight Over a Global Map” for 100 trumpets, one of several works — including “Orbits” for 80 trombones, soprano and organ — that he composed for vast brass or wind forces. “I don’t think you’ll miss the other 48 trumpets,” said the composer Neely Bruce, who conducted the arrangement for 52 trumpets and percussion at Roulette on Wednesday. The performance was part of the Festival of New Trumpet Music, whose theme this year is “Music for Small, Medium and Massive: Premieres, Fanfares and Remembrance,” an apt title for a Sept. 11 concert.
