Nice, good, and cool....you want it all.  All kidding aside, there are quite a few options. 

Lynn, Bryan- Bachy Things, Steak and Kidney Supper, and Ba De Do Dup
Moulert, Raymond- Suite pour trois trombone ā coulisse (1939)
Geminiani, Francisco-Concerto Grosso from Sonata, Op. 5, No. 3 (c. 1732) (arr. Morris)
Hidas, Frigyes- Alteba Trio, Interludio
LaFosse- Suite Impromptu

I don't think any of these are going to less than 10 minutes.

You could play Britten's Fanfare for St. Edmundsbury (1959).  This is for 3 trumpets, but you can transpose for trombone.  It works well.

I love trios.  I really feel it an overlooked part of the literature, and in my mind more rewarding to play. 


Haha there supposed to be an "or" in there somewhere

I'll check and see if the library has those

Thanks

The ewald at the school didn't have the bone or horn part so I punted

I'm going to give my recommendation of Ewazen mvt II of Frostfire

Thanks, I appreciate the response !

However, it's for a chamber class and it has to be quintet

Please , continue  :-P

Greetings people,

I would like to be recommended a brass quintet piece roughly 6-8 minutes in length

Or a movement of a piece

Any style - slow, fast, baroque, snazzy, etc

Something good university students can play.

      Pant Way cool

So it sounds like the "Universal Tenor" ?

I think it depends on the person. For me the Universal sounded wider/bigger, more rounded articulations IIRC


I asked and the Bel Canto is .547 btw

Wouldn't disagree. Maybe Jalapeņo plans to work with them exclusively. Just pointing out the few number of players that play Thein. I didn't say no one played them.

On the same tangent, also like Tony Wise, I have an Edwards and two bells, in case it's needed
He mentioned for like really loud sounds the Edwards might be more appropriate. Other situations too, I'm sure (all Edwards section ? Etc)

Minus a valve.....if anyone has one  :-P

Excellent posts so far.  What is the bore size of the slide?  Is the horn used?  What's going on with the slide crook?  Looks like the lacquer got chewed up.

I don't know they bore but I will guess .547. They have made this American style if that makes sense.

It's new, built about 3 weeks ago. That's tape residue to keep it from getting scratched !  Way cool

Part of three reason I got the horn is for better lead in a section and playing solos. For that I think I'm covered.

I had no problem tooting duets with my friend playing second ! (Very nice lows....centered)

Fwiw

Follow up:

Tony Wise delivered my horn to my office this morning, with Zachary Bond in tow.

He brought both the screw and regular detachable red bell, but of course I chose the screw 😙

The case is a Marcus Bonna, and the horn fits very nice.

I'll continue to use my Reunion Blues, Bc as a backpack setup it is more comfortable. Not hard and rigid
I'll use the MB if I travel, probably. It comes with a neat cloth folder that's zips onto the case and has straps for a bone stand

The trigger is the most close to open as I've felt on any valve.

The little bumps are called dots, and they experimented with the number and placement of them on the horn. There's a group on the bell section and also on the slide.

The counterweight is badas

Th slide is single bore.

It's made more like an American horn.

One leadpipe was included and I didn't care for characteristics, just the way it played.

Etc !

I also tried about 5 or 6 leadpipes. All screw-in

The small bore and Alto had what would be pressfit

Apparently there are more options in Germany ! I'd like to go someday

I tested horns for a few hours, we went out for chicken wings, and went back and played a few more hours

Coincidentally, the model that worked best for me was the same one I played at ITF. It is the Bel Canto model. I suppose it can be dubbed the Peter Steiner model; he helped develop it, and he played a wonderful recital at ITF.

Tony Wise was a gracious host. Got some great stories and advise from them.

There were 5 models at Thein House Texas: three large tenors, a small bore, and an alto. I was consumed with the large tenors so that is all I played. The first two I tried (one was the Universal) had screw bells, which is what I will choose. The Marcus Bonna (spelling ?) case is in the neighborhood of $700 so I might look elsewhere, but Tony said he's put it in regular holding on a plane with no extra padding and no problems. That sounds good.

I drove from San Antonio to Austin but I had a short warmup beforehand. When I got there I played a few Brad Edward's Lip Slurs on my horn, then played the large models. I enjoyed the colors possible on them right away. The middle horn (don't remember the model name) had a kranz on the bell, and one of those springs in the slide. The spring thing threw me for a loop...just not used to it. The last model I tried was the Bel Canto. It was more unique, with promise of colors and better articulation than my BachGreenhoe. High range was different, but not impossible. The valve sound was awesome, as was the connection of Db to F in Organ Symphony. Overall, sound was the biggest difference. It was refined. The slide was great. I tried three valve caps and the medium was best. There was also a "longer" tuning slide but there weren't major intonation issues so we skipped that.

I played A la maniere de Bach and Stravinsky, a rochut down the octave, and excerpts.

On my usual Greg Black New York 5M

Etc

They're hacked accounts. 

I've reported some of these today from that same "seller" but eBay is a little slow to remove them.

It has been removed.

eBay can be hacked and altered to that degree ?

Impressive.....most impressive
