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

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.

“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.”

“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.”
