Sweet Brass: Suite Music is a program which features the talent of Victoria-based trumpet soloist, Stevan Paranosic.  Paranosic holds a master’s degree from the University of British Columbia and is principal trumpet for the Vancouver Island Symphony Orchestra as well as acting second trumpet for the Victoria Symphony.

Paranosic is an integral member of the brass quintet, Victoria Brass.

He will play two contrasting works; one from Baroque composer Henry Purcell’s Sonata in D Major and one from Armenian composer Alexander Arutiunian’s 20th century Elegy.

The program begins with Carl Philipp Emanual Bach’s Sinfonia #2, in typical three-movement form (fast-slow-fast), one of six symphonies written in 1773 but not published during Bach’s lifetime.  It is then followed by Telemann’s Baroque Don Quixote Suite, which was inspired by Miguel de Cervante’s early 17th century novel. It has the form of a French dance suite, portraying the whimsical character of Don Quixote.

The program also includes Carl Nielsen’s late romantic period’s Little Suite, which was published in 1865 when the Danish composer was just 23 years old.
