November, 2018: Bruckner transcriptions by Randall Malmstrom
Randy has been fascinated with the music of Bruckner and he has made several arrangements of his works from trombone ensembles.
Initially, all the arrangements were for 5 parts but grew to 8 as a result of requests from other ensembles such as Trombone Unit Hannover. Randy continues to add to his list of arrangements, as well as adding 8-part versions to his existing 5-part versions. The arrangements have been met with uniform praise, and are well suited for combinations of altos, tenors, basses, contras and/or tuba, as well as bass trumpet. As a result of requests from a well-known brass quintet overseas and a tuba ensemble in the states, plans are being undertaken to convert some of the arrangements and/or produce new arrangements for those instrumentations and more.
Randy has been very generous with his music and I am please to offer two videos of his arrangement of Bruckner's Christus factus est. Corresponding scores are offered as well.
