It was a total thrill to have such a fine brass ensemble to work with, especially when they were at the top of their game as they were that morning. My aim was to complete the metamorphosis we had begun back in January. Just as in the story of Pinocchio when the woodenheaded puppet is transformed into a real live boy, I was hoping to complete the brass ensemble’s musical journey by stimulating their natural propensity for self-expression. The performers knew and understood the musical dynamics of the show. My job was to encourage an even stronger sense of confidence in themselves and in each other, and to take that final step toward free musical expression.
Seventy motivated brass performers, artfully resonating the spatial molecular environment around one’s entire being in a frenzied performance of auditory brilliance is a treat beyond measure… I loved it!
