World Premiere, Elizabeth Raum’s “Four Elements” transcribed for Brass Duo; Pluus “Invention No. 6” and Faure’s “Pavane” by the Brubeck-Neal Duo and Elizabeth Raum’s “Concerto for Bass Trombone” Performed with Piano Accompaniment

Unearthed this Faculty Brass Recital from the Kendall Campus of Miami Dade College, featuring The Brubeck Neal Duo in a World Premiere Transcription of Elizabeth Raum’s “Four Elements for Brass Duo”, and in performance with pianist extraordinaire Bronwen Rutter in a version of a piano trio where trumpet and bass trombone take the place of violin and ‘cello. (One wonders if the Raum Concerto had been performed in a duo setting ever before as well…)

Other highlights include Brian Neal’s Duo Concertante No. 3, and performances by tubist Calvin Jenkins and hornist Audrey Destito.
