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

This is both a melody and a song found in the Klezmer tradition and also the Kurdish tradition. Loosely translated it means ‘The Girl with the Brown Hair’. As with the Balkan tradition, the music has a more Eastern sound to it due to its use of a slightly different tonal system to that of typical western music. For those of you with a keen ear you will notice the characteristics of the music basing itself very much in the dominant rather than the tonic key centre and the use of the harmonic  minor scale as a melodic device.

"Who but the best professionals could live up to this ?... Everything about this disc is to be recommended, the recording is crystal clear and the playing and arranging of the first water”
