Music to the Contender would make a great arrangement in the right hands
ave satani from the omen
that would be interestring
I have done an arrangement of the main John Williams theme of Superman available from www.bernaertsmusic.com playable by all bands.
I always thought if someone could get to grips and arrange some of Pink Floyds material it would be good. Anyone fancy a go?
Funnily enough, I've been wondering about doing bits from "The Wall", I can't decide whether this is a superb idea or a nightmare
Anyone got any thoughts on whether or not it might work?
See how things start?
National Express, by Neil Hannon, aka The Divine Comedy, arranged for Trombone Solo (and embarrassed cornets) by Tim Paton, was played by Tim Benson and the tMP band at Pontins last night.
Golden Brown - Stranglers!!
Ok so I got National Express out of this thread... how about?
Some Guillimots - particularly Sao Paulo, which is fast becoming my fav track.
The second movement from Tchaikovsky 5 - Horn Solo
Barber's adagio for strings for brass
Arranged by myself and available from www.obrasso.ch
Coldplay's "Fix you" would make a good Brass arrangement in my humble opinion - would obviously require some improvisation, but it could work
wallace and gromit for youth band i have arranged a simple quartet version but what about a fullband version
I'm pretty sure it has already been done..
Not sure who by though...
It has been done, A Grand Day out, we played it in our brass ensemble.
Full BB parts we just did a miniature version lol
Trying to keep the customer satisfied - Simon and Garfunkel
Heard a jazz band play it few months back - needs damn good bass bone and sop but doesnt sound too hard....
Rachmaninov's Piano Concerto No.3 for me, although I hate to think what the solo part would be like, and think it would be well beyond the technical capabilities of any band. Can't see it happening unfortunately
I'm back to the point wher one asks "What's the point of bothering, when the publishers won't even give you the basic courtesy of an acknowledgement, let alone a reply?"
Having had the yearly overdose of Santa Claustrophobia, I want a full version of Rootin' Tootin' Santa Claus! What a tune! But where is it from? I've never heard it anywhere other than in this piece.
You need to get your CD collect upto date found the following versions on CD
. A Rootin’ Tootin’ Santa Claus - Tex Beneke w/ The Miller Orchestra
Pee Wee King - Rootin' Tootin Santa Claus - Pee Wee King's Country Hoedown (Bloodshot)
plus it seems to be credited to a new Christmas film release this year Unaccompanied Minors
My advice would be, try a different publisher!
Whilst I realise the name on the cover is often big part of how we judge scores at a glance, getting new music out there is more important now than it ever was.
Don't give up budding/amateur/experienced/professional composers/arrangers. The brass band world needs you!!
