Description

Part of a collection of eight contrasting pieces entitled "Movers & Shakers" and continues the Superbrass series of 3 part flexi resources for Junior Bands.

This resource builds on the foundations established and musically showcased in the starter resource – “5 & In !”

The material is written such that each part is active within the range of an octave (often less), the pieces are almost always diatonic and rhythmic characteristics are enhanced by the inclusion of a small variety of articulations.

For this series we have given the conductor & ensemble members the chance to be a bit more creative with the structure of the pieces.

Each piece is derived from little more than a duet (Parts 1 & 2) with Part 3 sometime duplicating a melodic role and at other times providing an independent bass line underpinning the harmonic structure.

You may choose to play each piece twice; once as a duet (Parts 1 & 2) followed by a full 3 part version.

“This is joyous stuff; an intelligent, coherent crossover disc, performed with phenomenal punch. Brilliantly recorded too – what’s the point of assembling a collective of virtuoso brass players if they can’t make your ears bleed ?”

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

“The entire programme can be likened to a sumptuous feast, with each track having its own highly delectable and thoroughly satisfying flavour. The CD is surely compulsive listening for all brass and percussion enthusiasts.”

“This intriguing "water-borne" voyage runs the gamut from more classically-tinged interpretations to straight-ahead and improvised jazz. Along that journey we are treated to a highly inspired and masterfully presented performance.”
