Moscow: Self-Published, 1989. A fascinating and adventurous brass work in three movements by this gifted former-Soviet composer (born in 1957) now living in Israel.

Additionally, near the end, one finds quotations from the Shostakovich Second Symphony and three brief speaking lines! 30 pages. CONDITION: a securely bound copy with pristine score pages, showing light shelf-wear. It is unmarkd but for a cataloguing number (?) in the lower left corner of the back cover. This exceedingly scarce, attractive copy is now in a clear, protective polypropylene bag with backing board.

Chorale: Komm, Heiliger Geist - Arrangement for Brass Quintet [SCORE & PARTS]

By Schein, Johann Hermann (1586-1630)

Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania: Theodore Presser Co., 1979. Exceedingly scarce and out-of-print. Arrangement for brass quintet by Bernard Fitzgerald. The work is in two parts: a 4-voice chorale harmonization (Andante maestoso) followed by a 5-part contrapuntal setting (Allegro moderato); 6-page full score plus 5 x 1-page parts. CONDITION: an excellent unmarked, uncompromised copy - now in a clear, protective polypropylene bag with backing board. COVER SCANS: Most scores are too large for my 8.5" x 11" scanner, so the images are often not complete to the edges (i.e., are "cropped"). Please consult the "condition" section for a verbal description of edge-wear and other details. NOTE: Multiple score orders, depending on weight, may qualify for a generous shipping charge reduction.. First Edition. Loose Folio. Fine. 9" x 12". Music Score.
