The Christmas Song

for Brass Ensemble

Composed by Bob Wells and Mel Tormé
Arranged by Scott Ninmer

"The Christmas Song" was commissioned by the Southern California Brass Consortium in 2014. This arrangement of the perennially popular "The Christmas Song" features the trumpet soloist, set in contrast to the flugelhorns. After a chorale statement of the verse and chorus by the brass, the mallet percussion have their moment to shine on the second verse. The entire ensemble comes together for the final statement of the chorus. Harmonic twists and turns give this well-worn classic a fresh take.

Concertino

for Horn and Piano

Composed by Scott Ninmer

This piece follows the normal three-part structure of the concerto. The opening Allegro uses bouncy, jazzy rhythms and harmony, establishing several motives that will return later in the piece. A largo section follows, showcasing the lyricism and beautiful tone of the horn. This melds into a transition section before the ensuing fast-paced third section enters with angular lines contrasted with flowing melodies.

Negative Space

for Tuba/Euphonium Quartet

Composed by Scott Ninmer

"Negative Space" was commissioned by The American Tuba Quartet. In writing "Negative Space", I sought to meld my classical and jazz/pop influences as one to create a work that would be both fun and challenging to perform and enjoyable to the audience. The first movement in E-flat major features bouncy and syncopated rhythms in a lively start to the piece. The second movement is a slow waltz in a melancholic D-flat major. In contrast to the first movement, the second movement introduces more chromatic harmony set underneath the tuneful melodies. The third movement in F major brings together motives from the first two movements along with original material in an energetic scherzo. This movement also features several chorale interjections as well as a fugato, and brings the piece to a climactic finish.
