Brass band music in the Balkan countries plays a very importance role at social functions (parties, weddings etc.). This musical genre has a very distinctive sound since it uses a tonal system that is slightly different to that of the western tradition. Balkan Brass Band music relies heavily on replicating various folk song and dance traditions from the region and is not afraid to Balkanise almost any popular music to become part of the repertoire.

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 arrangements all sound fresh, and the playing is beyond reproach.”
