    Extreme Make-Over - Johan de Meij

    The work, set as the test-piece for the 2005 European Brass Band Championships was inspired by a theme from the second movement of Tchaikovsky's String Quartet No.1 (Andante Cantabile). It consists of a number of musical metamorphoses on the theme and includes several excerpts from Tchaikovsky's Fourth and Sixth Symphonies and Romeo and Juliet. The most unconventional element of the work is instrumentation for ten tuned bottles to be played by members of the cornet section. This gives the piece an Indonesian Gamelan effect. Why not give your players something to get their teeth into with this impressive major new work.

    Soweto Swing - Peter Martin

    The sparkling music from Soweto (South Africa) has a long history. The rhythmic dances of Kwela, the 'syncopated guitars' of Mbaqanga, the saxophones and trumpets with their supple African jazz sounds as well as the infectious and sometimes gripping choir singing. All these elements can be recognized when listening to the 'Soweto String Quartet', which in its turn inspired Peter Martin to write 'Soweto Swing'.

    Four Etudes (Brass Band - Score and Parts) - Gregson, Edward

    This work was written during August and September 2016. In it, I wanted primarily to explore the elements of timbre, rhythm, texture and colour. The first three ?tudes (or studies) are based on a set of piano pieces I composed in 1982, whilst the last, the longest of the set, was composed specially. My reference point was the Four ?tudes for orchestra of 1928 by Stravinsky, a work I have always admired, and of which the first three also happen to be based on a set of earlier pieces, in his case for string quartet, with the last being a re-arrangement of a work for pianola. I have also borrowed the titles he gave to the individual studies as they seemed to fit the mood of my pieces.However, the exception is the final study, where instead of the exuberant mood of his colourful portrayal of Madrid, mine was influenced by the terrible human tragedy that was unfolding in Aleppo at the time I was writing it, and thus reflects the violence and barbarism of those events; yet towards the end it does offer a glimmer of hope for humanity with a return to the Canticle (Song) of the first study, and concludes quietly with the chords and bells that began the work. The titles of the ?tudes are Canticle, Dance, Excentrique, and Aleppo. Like Stravinsky’s, the set is relatively short, lasting around 8 minutes.The Four ?tudes were commissioned by Black Dyke Band and were written specially for the recording marking the conclusion of my year as Composer-in-Residence. The concert premiere will be given by Black Dyke Band, conducted by the composer, at the RNCM Festival of Brass in January 2017.- Edward Gregson

    Carols for Band

    Designed to be playable by any combination from quartet to full brass band, wind band or orchestra, the arrangements in this book will provide a practical solution to all your carolling needs. Parts are divided strictly into Soprano, Alto, Tenor and Bass so that any suitable instrumentation will sound well, provided that an equal balance of players per 'voice' is maintained. The carols are printed in alphabetical order, so they are easy to find, and comprehensively indexed under both first line and name of tune.Aimed primarily at brass and wind bands, and in an effort to keep top E flat as the highest note for singing, the keys that have been chosen are mainly on the flat side. String parts are provided so that instrumentation is comprehensive, but it may be found easier to raise some of the keys when a predominantly string ensemble is used. This can be done without actual transposition and is a common trick among organists: for example a piece in G flat or D flat can be played in G or D merely by changing the key signature and altering the accidentals.Dynamics have not been used and are at the discretion of the conductor.The score and all of the parts are available seperately and standard brass and wind band sets (25 parts in each) can be ordered at a cheaper rate. These sets do not contain the Score, Timpani or Percussion parts.
