Solar Suite for Brass Quintet - Jason Brauer

Notes: "Solar Suite," the last piece I composed at the Interlochen Summer Arts Camp, stemmed from a melody I wrote in elementary school that my dad always considered his favorite.  The third movement is a straightforward transcription of this melody,  and the first two movements are made up of fragmented bits of the third.  

"Solar Suite" was performed at the third and final composers' forum at Interlochen by a very talented group: Sam Dusinberre, 1st trumpet; Zach Bergman, 2nd trumpet; Ryan McGee, horn; Zach Johnson, trombone; and Jovany Dorsainvil, tuba.
