The Om Pa band sound is synonymous with the Alpine region of central Europe; particularly the Bavarian region of Germany and neighbouring Austria. The upbeat, happy sound of these waltzes, marches and polkas also go hand-in-hand with any excuse for a party or festival, particularly if beer is on-hand. Probably the biggest of all these is the Oktober Fest in Munich, Bavaria.

Description

Part of a collection of thirty original compositions and arrangements entitled Ba-Da-Boom Brass.

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 4 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.

“The CD is just fabulous. The ensemble playing is fantastic; the tightness of the ensemble is amazing; the balance and dynamics are just brilliant.”

Philip Biggs
The Brass Herald

“Under the Spell of Spain defies any category other than: superb.”

“This is absolutely one of the finest and most creative brass ensembles in the world."

Marc Dickman
University of South Florida writing in the International Trombone Association Journal

“The end result, is a resounding success. This is not a commercial CD, this is education, passion and self belief written in the sleeve notes”

Richard Walker
British Trombone Society

“Another impressive offering then from Superbrass, and a worthy successor to their excellent debut disc”

Dr. Gavin Dixon

“Stunning playing all round and a perfect 'snapshot' of the incredibly high standards of performance in brass playing in London today."
