“Passacaglia is a work for brass quintet that tackles a style of composition rarely explored in brass chamber music repertoire. An ostinato subject is provided initially by the trombone, creating a quasi-minimalist chant-like atmosphere, as other motifs gradually evolve and emerge before disappearing back into the homophonic texture. A central trumpet duet suggests a new direction, yet hints of the original theme never fully subside. Another duet provides even greater agitation, but again fails to materialize as the theme gradually fades into the distance.”
