    Tientos y Danzas

    “Tientos y Danzas” is a suite in four movements and was written especially for Superbrass. It is not literally descriptive, but conjures up a breezy, festive atmosphere. The title “Tientos” stems from the fact that a lot of the brass writing is reminiscent of virtuosic Renaissance keyboard finger-work (a “Tiento” is the Spanish equivalent of a toccata). Only later did we discover that the word is also the name of a style of flamenco dancing, which links nicely with Danzas (dances). The first movement is an extended fanfare, with military rhythms on the tenor drums and dramatic cornet and horn calls. Next comes a witty waltz featuring the horn. The music builds in complexity; the main horn theme returns before a playful coda. The following Andante makes effective use of the mutes, both in the haunting opening “pyramid” chords, and in the elaborate, recurrent cornet duets; the two cornets have the last word. After a couple of false starts, the finale sets off at a cracking pace, with dislocated accents creating an irregular rhythmic pulse. There are opportunities for every instrument to shine (metaphorically) and the music gets even faster for a thrilling conclusion.Duration: 10:30 minutesPercussion: 3 Players playing tenor drum, side drum, tambourine, suspended cymbal, triangle, 2 tom-toms and castanetsGrade 5: Difficult Championship and 1st Section Bands

    Enter The Dance - Andrea Price

    Brass Band Solo Series - Grade 5 (Soloist 6) A virtuosic tenor horn solo with a celtic flavour by Andrea Price. Commissioned by Sheona White and premiered by Sheona and the University of Salford Brass Band in 2013, Enter the Dance is a lively and virtuosic tenor horn solo. The piece was inspired by the stone circles of celtic legend, where unsuspecting passers-by would be enticed into a circle to join the "Lords and Ladies" of fairie folk-lore in their dance - never to be seen again. The dance-like outer sections frame a beautiful slow melody which requires good breath control and sensitive, lyrical phrasing. Duration: 00:04:30

    Inchcolm

    “Inchcolm” is an island in the Forth estuary first visited by St Columba in 567 and mentioned in Shakespeare’s Macbeth. The ruins of Columba’s abbey are regularly shrouded in mist and bring with it a flavour of mystery and legend. Composer and distinguished French horn player Terry Johns (Drac to his friends) was commissioned to write this work for Superbrass and their water influenced 2nd album, “Brass Taps”. Drac requested that he be allowed to write a solo feature with a “proper” tune for horn. Kingdom Brass in Scotland has recently premiered “Inchcolm” in its new brass band form and the solo part is playable by either a tenor or french horn player.Duration: 5 minutes.Percussion: 3 players playing timpani, glockenspiel, triangle, pair of cymbals and suspended cymbal.Grade 3: Medium 1st and 2nd Section Bands

    Fugatango

    Composer and Internationally reknown jazz trumpeter Steve Waterman writes… “When Roger Argente approached me to write a composition for his Spanish flavoured brass project he made the suggestion that a Tango, although more Argentinian than Spanish, would fit in well with the overall concept. I have always been a very big fan of the music of Argentinian composer Astor Piazzolla and particularly the way that the Tango could be combined with jazz. A favourite recording of mine is of Piazzolla himself performing (on the bandoneon) with the jazz saxophonist Gerry Mulligan. As the composing progressed, a fugato also emerged hence the title Fugatango." Originally “Fugatango” featured a french horn improvised introduction section. This new brass band version allows the flugelhorn to enjoy the moment with a wonderful 8 bar solo section, now notated. Later in the work the solo trombone is given a solo section.Duration: 5:30 minutes.Percussion: 2 players playing drum kit and castanets. Grade 2: Moderately Easy 2nd and 3rd Section Bands
