Australian Youth Orchestra and Prokofiev

More youtube searching – “prokofiev brass” – and found this from the AYO.  The tubist recorded this using his phone.  The video’s sideways, but who cares!  I’m McLuvin’ his sound.

The build-up starts around 1:30 with low brass in around 1:55 (and again at 3:50).  Great tone!  Fat sound!  Clean attacks!  No apologies!  I notice he’s breathing a lot but there’s no lack of sound with upper brass sustaining.

I also noticed the lick around 3:36 where tuba backs the trumpet.  Low D down to pedal Eb is nice and clean.  I want to work with the trumpet who’s got this in OT to make sure we’re together.
