Check out our recording of Ludwig Mauer's Three Pieces... This piece is a staple of the brass quintet literature and is an excellent tool for young players to learn ensemble skills as chamber musicians. 

The movements are:

1.  Maestoso alla Marcia

2.  Andante con moto

3.  Allegro grazioso

Valor Brass trumpeter, Michael Mergen, got busy recently on a new arrangement of Bach's Fantasia in G Major, originally for organ.  We have performed this piece numerous times, and it really makes great use of the sonorous quality of the brass quintet.  Michael's use of flugelhorn in the arrangement lends a very nice color to the quintet.
