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

A Latin-American inspired piece hinting at the heat of the local climate and of that generated by the dancing. The entire piece is structured on the 3:2 clave rhythm synonymous with so much Salsa and Latin American music.

“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

“The CD is just fabulous. The ensemble playing is fantastic; the tightness of the ensemble is amazing; the balance and dynamics are just brilliant.”

Philip Biggs
The Brass Herald

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

Rodney Newton
Composer, arranger and music journalist

“Under the Spell of Spain is a showcase of virtuosic playing by some of London’s finest brass and percussion players. Highly recommended!”

Jon Gorrie
Founder, BrassMusician.com

“The end result, is a resounding success. This is not a commercial CD, this is education, passion and self belief written in the sleeve notes”

Richard Walker
British Trombone Society

“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.”
