Description

Gunther Schuller (b. 1925) : Diptych for Brass Quintet and Orchestra (1967) James Stagliano, horn; Armando Ghittala and Roger Voisin, trumpets; William Gibson, trombone; Chester Schmitz, tuba; Boston Symphony Orchestra (March 3, 1967) Caveat: Acetate tape becomes fragile and has a low shelf-life in comparison to other media. This tape has deteriorated over many years and has become very brittle, stored in a cardboard box for decades, and the end of the piece had broken off...a few seconds of the end of the piece was gone before it was digitized. Therefore, I uploaded this work with some hesitation. I actually decided to so because there are other recordings of the work right here on You Tube of the Diptych for Concert Band, and most likely versions available on CD as well. So, if you must hear the last bars, can go to one of those recordings. Again, my philosophy is this is a rare recording unavailable almost anywhere else that I know of. It can be fully enjoyed. The information about this work is in the introduction.
