Details

“Icebreaker” was originally written for Superbrass in March 2012 and recorded in it’s original brass dectet and percussion form on their “Brass Taps” CD. The work begins with tumultuous fanfare, shrouded by thick chords in the lower brass. This fanfare-like material leads to a biting statement from the trombones. An ‘icy’ gritty section, once again played by the trombones grows in energy, punctuated by the return of the fanfares. The horns, providing a little respite, emerge in a quiet restrained line, which is coloured by the rest of the ensemble. Before fully coming to fruition, the horn line is quickly cut-short and subsumed by the sudden return of the energetic material from the other instruments, which grows to the end of the piece.

Duration: 4:30 minutes

Percussion: 2 players playing drum kit, bass drum and tam-tam.
