Equale #1 - Beethoven - arranged for Brass Quartet by Paul Bara.
Beethovens 3 Equalis are a masterwork - written originally for equal voices or instruments - The trombones quicly adapted these equalies, and has since the 1800th century been synonymous with the trombone quartet. But the equalis works beautifully for brass quartet as well - nicely demonstrated in this arrangement by Paul Bara.
