for tuba solo
sFr. 26.00
This collection of thirteen pieces plays with the tonal possibilities of the instrument.

The contrasting individual movements form a whole. 1. Glitter - 2. Second Hand Paint - 3. Black Shadow - 4. Colored Shadow - 5. Dirty - 6. Missing Echo - 7. Pressure - 8. Out of Shape - 9. Red Disc - 10. Out of Balance - 11. Merger - 12. Monochrome - 13. Mixed Colors.

17906 Andreas Brenner: Sinus D (2010) 9'
for brass quintet (horn, 2 trumpets, trombone, tuba)
sFr. 23.00
(Stimmen: sFr. 31.-; € 24.-)
On the formal level, Sinus D generates an arch (lat. sinus) - like a D placed on ist back: the elements of a phrase - chords and their resulting melodic motifs - glide into each other successively to create a core of maximum density and a finish, which, with regard to this density, returns to the begining.

17909 Andreas Brenner: Prismen (2011) 12'
for wind quintet (horn, 2 trumpets, trombone, tuba) and organ
sFr. 29.00
(Stimmen: sFr. 18.-; € 14.-)
Short three or four tone phrases of equidistant intervals are combined in such a way as to form sound structures similar to those found in tonal music. This piece uses a radically reduced amount of material in ever-changing combinations to create prismatic radiations. The sound structures are relics, nothing but colour values - no longer bound by gravity to a base tone (as in tonal music), but produced through a constructive law. This is also the case with the E major chord, which brings this piece to a 'concilitory' end.

for speaker, three female voices, tuba, accordion, two pianos and choir

26134 Max E. Keller: Grillen (2009) 6'
for trumpet 1 in B, trumpet 2 in B, horn (F), trombone and tuba
sFr. 26.00
The chirping of crickets is generally considered to be soft and quiet, it can, however, become truly clamorous when when many crickets are heard at close quarters - just as one can experience it in the copses or groves of Greece. What is apparently weak can, en mass and under specific circumstances, develop unimagined power. In German the word for cricket is 'Grillen' and carries with it another maeaning: fantastical or dull thoughts.
