    Ballet for Band - Score & Parts - Joseph Horovitz

    Ballet for Band was written as the test-piece for the Championship section finals of the National Brass Band Championships, held at the Royal Albert Hall in October 1983.Although the work is not programmatic, within the space of ten minutes, the composer uses a form which might be considered to be the form of a ballet. Therefore there is a fanfare at the beginning which might be the overture, different characters appear, and scenes are quite clearly marked by, for instance, baritones or by muted trombone, although the listener is encouraged to use his own imagination.Thematically the work is tightly controlled, with the same material re-appearing in many different guises, as a flugel horn solo, as a waltz on the horns, and on the euphonium. Horovitz employs a rich harmonic pallet, but the work is most definitely rooted in a tonal language, with hints of Straussian richness later in the work.The work is notable for its middle section, in which the music gets slower and slower, providing a real test of control throughout the band.Ballet for Band was by no means Joseph Horovitz’s first work for the medium: his fine “Concerto for Euphonium and Band” is frequently played, and he has also written a cantata entitled “Samson” for choir and band.

    Celebration for Band - John Brakstad

    Many Norwegian bands have grown up around factories; but Norwegian factories are often located in the countrysides - by a fjord or lake, by a river or waterfall that provided power for the factory.The factory was the foundation for the existence of the community, but it was also essential for the community's cultural life; choirs, bands etc. (cp. British brass bands and mining)."Celebration for band" tries to give a picture of the environment and life around a band like this, with both factory noise and the natural world (Pastorale), as well as the challenges and development of the band itself.The composition is built up of five connected episodes:- Fanfare and Prologue (concludes with a feeling of the untamed power of the river) - Pastorale I: " At the river"- Intermezzo: " The Factory" (starts with the opening of water for the turbines: snare drum. Factory whistle and bell call to work, and the spinning and weaving machinery starts up.)- Pastorale II: " Summer evening on the fjord." - Finale: " Challenge and Progress"

    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.
