    Vienna Philharmonic Fanfare - Richard Strauss

    Richard Strauss (1864—1949) composed his Vienna Philharmonic Fanfare (Wiener Philharmoniker Fanfare) in 1924 for the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra. Scored for 8 horns, 6 trumpets, 6 trombones, 2 tubas and 2 timpani, the fanfare opened the orchestra’s inaugural benefit ball to raise money for the musicians' pension fund. It is still performed each year. This arrangement for full brass band and timpani would work well with the cornets and trombones stood around the back of the band in a semi-circle formation, with the flugel, tenor horns, baritone(s), euphoniums and basses sat ’inside’ (although conductors should beware of any balance issues presented by this setup!)Also available to purchase in print from(external webpage, opens in new window)

    Light Cavalry Overture - Phillip Littlemore

    Francesco Cavalieri di Supp?-Demelli was born in Split, then in the Austrian empire, and began composing as a boy. On moving to Vienna he changed his name to the more Germanic and less ostentatious Franz von Supp? and began conducting opera as well as writing over three hundred works of his own. Most are unperformed today though the overtures, such as Poet and Peasant and Pique Dame , are still very popular. The operetta Light Cavalry was written in 1866 with a plot concerning a love intrigue which is resolved by the Hungarian Hussars (Light Cavalry). The Overture consists of a fanfare, a faster section, and an Hungarian-styled slow section which are interspersed with the famous galop with its short, short long rhythm representing the beat of the horses’ hooves. This music has been much copied, parodied and often used for cartoons. Item Code:TPBB-081 Duration: 6'00" Grade: Suitable for all
