Brass bands are very much part of the musical culture here. Much of Romania’s indigenous folk music is based on an uneven pulse in which some beats are longer than others.

Description

We all know that playing in a band is, for us brass players what it is all about. Band Travels seeks to take brass instrumentalists (and drummers / percussionists) on a global journey of musical discovery by exploring characteristic music of each country visited. Band Travels seeks to provide young musicians with an easy and initial point of access at which ensemble playing can be enjoyed and developed. It follows a 4 part flexi scoring formula; requiring a minimum of 4brass players - the maximum number is endless !. Parts 1 and 2 are played by trumpets / cornets while Parts 3and 4 are played by a flexi combination of all / any other lower brass instruments. Drum kit and percussion help add a stylistic identity to each piece. To help with programming, you may wish to visit just some of the other countries available. Ready for the Off can serve as an opening piece and Homeward Bound as a finisher. You may wish to include also include a stopover on your global journey, in which case Staying Put will serve well.

“Another impressive offering then from Superbrass, and a worthy successor to their excellent debut disc”

“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.”

“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 ?”

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