This Sonata features the trumpets and the trombones with the horns and tuba representing the organ. 2 piccolo trumpets are used to float their sound above the foundation set by the remainder of the ensemble. This is an example of idiomatic brass music that has been altered slightly in instrumentation to produce a new sonority. The figures found in this three section work are elegant and far more interesting than the standard trumpet/trombone ensemble pieces of this era. This arrangement is for 4 trumpets, 2 horns, 3 trombones and tuba.
