Guilmant : Guilmant Morceau Symphonique arranged for Brass quintet
Product Code : Guilmant_01
Felix Alexandre Guilmant (1837-1911) was a French organist and composer. He got his start in his hometown of Meudon before moving to Paris in 1871 as the organist at the Holy Trinity church. While occupying that position for 30 years, he developed an international career as an organist, touring Europe, the United States, and Canada. He was also something of a scholar, helping to create anthologies of early organ music by French and non-French composers. His greatest contribution was to the organ repertoire, both as a composer and a scholar. One of his exceptional works is his Morceau Symphonique for solo trombone and piano. It was written in 1902 as an examination piece for the trombone students at the Paris Conservatory. It remains a beloved staple of the solo trombone repertoire, and has been arranged several times for different accompaniments including our Brass quintet arrangement. This arrangement has been created by our very capable Phil Carrington. We would classify this as quite difficult for the trombone soloist.
In most cases, this is the arrangment being played back using the Sibelius video export facility, but in some cases this is an actual performance by groups commissioned by Undiscovered Brass to actually perform the arrangment.
