Tielman Susato was a Renaissance composer, instrumentalist and publisher based in Antwerp. In 1551 he produced a collection of dance compositions called La Danserye made up of Allemandes, Galliards and Rondes. The limited range of each instrumental part allowed them to be used in a very flexible manner; making use of whatever instruments were available at the time. These dances were very much for amateur as well as professional use and hence firmly embedded themselves into the musical and social culture of the time.

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.

“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

“Brilliant technique and superb artistry from all concerned.”

"WOW !!!!! all of you should be locked up !!!! What great stuff - the compositions/arrangements, the playing (OUTRAGEOUS !!! ), everything is simply fantastic. (actually - i couldn't have expected anything less ! ) Many, many thanks to you and all for your superb contributions. yet again, you've managed to raise the bar! (an inch or two is ok but a few yards is really unfair !!!!!!!!!! )"

“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 ?”

Graham Rickson

“Every now and again a recording that is both truly outstanding and will have great appeal to brass band listeners appears on the shelves. We are delighted to make it the first recipient of our CD of the Year Editors Award.”
