This original work is a musical dialogue between a Brass ensemble and a Handbell choir, with an optional rhythm section. Their bantering with changing time signatures and unexpected harmonic choices ultimately produces a rousing opening concert piece. The title was created using letters from Brass and Handbells.
Although Matt studied at the New England Conservatory in Boston, the musical ideas for "Brells" revealed themselves while he was playing a gig at Harvard University in 1989. You never know when inspiration may strike.
