Set at a Junior Band level, PARP ! follows a flexi scoring formula of mixed brass players; requiring a minimum of 4 brass players - but the maximum number is endless. The pieces are predominantly groove based and seek to take participants through a wide range of styles and musical identities. 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 piece seeks to imitate a piece of Klezmer music. One particular characteristic of a Klezmer song or dance is where the music starts slow and gradually speeds up into something of a frenzy. In a typical Klezmer band the melody would be carried by either a Clarinet or Violin (Fiddle) hence Fiddley Fum.

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

Peter Bassano
Head of Brass Royal College of Music (retired)

“One of the finest brass ensemble recordings that has ever come my way.”

Rodney Newton
Composer, arranger and music journalist

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

Dr. Gavin Dixon
Classical CD Reviews

It is scintillatingly good. Superbrass more than live up to their name.”

“Many recordings over the last few decades have demonstrated the superb quality of British brass playing; 'Under the Spell of Spain' will rightfully take its place among them.”

Paul Sarcich

“All cleverly arranged and beautifully played, with excellent sonics.”
