This is an expansion of a brass quintet commissioned by North Alps Symphonic Band in 2010 to this brass octet for the 2011 "Moon Traveler / Brass Concept" CD recording.

As the title suggests, it is a suite of three movements with different atmospheres, but the rhythm and melody at the beginning of the first movement and the fanfare-like melody in the latter half appear in all three movements, making the work united. Therefore, it is better to improve the approach when playing. Pause only briefly between movements, and keep in mind the progress and expression of "three of them together".

(Takamasa Sakai)
