    I hope you will enjoy this demo, "The Bull", for ensemble french horns (download collection) and orchestra.

    The Bull

    I wanted to call this piece "La Corrida", which is what it's about, except I felt it would be glorifying the spanish tradition and I feel very strong about ceasing this type of sport or entertainment. So the piece is about a bull, which is the title, "The Bull", represented by ensemble french horns, and the orchestra is the matador and crowd in an unfair dual. The bull obviously has no chance to win despite his heroic efforts.

    Thanks for listening!


  • Guy,

    As usual, this is very nice...

    Especially about depth and transparency...

    You are keeping us on toes !



  • Thanks Migot! Keeps me on my toes as well! [:)]

    ps I added where I was coming from with this piece. 

  • Nice music.  I just wish there was more of it.

    Thanks Gary!  I think the bull died at the end [:(]

  • Hi Guy,

      No doubt he died at the end, not instantly, but mercifully quick.  Saddest part is the bull seemed young and good natured, until those damned picadillos got going at him.

      Gooding writing, Guy, as always.          Happy New Year.           Cheers,       Tom

  • Well done, Guy!  Nice mix...
