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.
This piece aims to celebrate the character of Klezmer music. Klezmer music has its origins in the Jewish communities of central and Eastern Europe. It is very much social music and is found at the heart of many a ceremony or celebration. In many traditional Klezmer bands the violin and later the clarinet have enjoyed the prominence of delivering the musical pyrotechnics. However as the music has spread around the globe, other instruments including brass have been encompassed into the Klezmer Band.
