Titans (for Brass Quartet)

Brass Quartet (2 trumpets, trombone, tuba)
Mike Lyons
Score Exchange

This extended (15-minute) and challenging brass quartet is inspired by the Titans of Greek mythology. The music is based mainly on the opening chords, which recur again and again. Personalities and concepts from the classical Greek myths are represented: Cronus, Gaea, Chaos, Zeus, Hades, Poseidon, Tartarus, Oceanus, Phoebe, Mnemosyne, and the Titanomachy (the war of the Olympians against the Titans).

This is a difficult and challenging piece demanding a high degree of skill from all players. It uses a number of dramatic effects and will stretch any ensemble.
