The Cat Of Highmount


Nicola Ferro's amazing composition for 3 Trombones, Euphonium, Tuba and 2 Percussion players. Nicola writes:
"This original composition has been my inspiration during the time I was at Joe's home on Highmount Ave in Nyack, NY. I met his beautiful cat, I noticed all the details, when he walked, when he jumped and when he purred. Every part of the piece is the representation of the cat. At the end, I included a quotation from the cat of the fable Music Peter and the Wolf by Sergei Prokofiev."
