Black Bayou Brass Plays Naulais and Nelhýbel

Black Bayou Brass’s faculty recital last week went very well, and I have a few videos to share from the performance (read more about the program here). Enjoy!

First is Flash, by Jérôme Naulais.  If you checked out my video of just the horn part and have been wondering what the rest of the parts sound like, here you go!

Next is Václav Nelhýbel’s Trio for Brass. There are three movements.

There really is quite a bit of great music out there for brass trio, but unfortunately not much of it is well known or performed. This year I’ll begin working on a larger project involving the brass trio repertoire. Stay tuned for updates!

I really like the Nelhybel. I remember playing it with Contrapunctus in Madison. I’ll make sure to send you the music to my brass trio when I’m done writing it. I’m shooting for end of April to have it done.


I love the Nelhybel. Sheet music for a trumpet/trumpet/trombone version (201.00 in Robert King lingo) is widely available, but I haven’t found a source for the trumpet/horn/trombone (111) version. I see that it’s published by General Music Publishing/Novello, perhaps currently owned by Colgems/EMI, whose web site I have not been able to figure out. Can you give me guidance on where to find it? Many thanks.


Thank you for your quick response. The jwpepper version is indeed the tpt/tpt/tbn version published by Great Works Publishing. I have located a copy at the University of Massachusetts and will attempt to borrow it from them. Thanks for the advice!
