Ba-Da-Boom Brass - A new initiative from Superbrass Music. This collection of 30 original compositions and arrangements has been inspired by the heritage and culture of world and historical brass-related styles. We hope this repertoire will prompt a growing inquisitiveness for brass players of all ages and styles, and was created with a brass club or gathering in mind. Set at a moderate / training band standard, these pieces can be played by a flexi group of mixed brass instruments plus assorted optional percussion. A minimum of 4 brass players is necessary, but the maximum is limitless. All four brass voices have occasional divisi passages; in these instances more texture and harmonic colour is added. In the instance of using just four brass players, playing just the top part in each case will provide a cohesive performance.

  • Part 1 – Trumpet / Cornet in Bb
  • Part 2 – Trumpet / Cornet in Bb
  • Part 3 – Horn in Eb or F / Trombone / Baritone / Euphonium
  • Part 4 – Trombone / Baritone / Euphonium / Bass Trombone / Tuba
  • (8va options for Bass Trombone & Tuba)
  • Assorted optional percussion - prioritise drum kit

Description

Much South African Township music carries a very buoyant, energetic drive about it. However, at the same time there are ballads and lullabies that have a simplistic casual grace about them. It is this latter style that I have attempted to convey in this composition. Imagine an African sunset….J.M.
