Ideas please: I need some help from those tMPer's with a wider-ranging and more in-depth knowledge of repertoire than I have. Please be aware that the thread title is not meant to be in any way disparaging towards respected modern-day composers of brass band music, however I'll try to explain: In May, The Egham Band is giving a slightly unusual concert, in that we have teamed up with the local Music Club with the intention of presenting the brass band to an audience of music-lovers who would not normally consider attending a brass band concert. The sort of people who would happily sit through a couple of hours of Beethoven/Brahms/Mozart string quartets or piano trios, but would avoid a conventional brass band concert because their perception of brass bands is based on "Brassed Off" and their experience of seeing/hearing bands at the local annual agricultural show, or whatever, therefore they imagine that we only play "the Floral Dance" and arrangements of the "Galop from William Tell." Instead, what we want to do is show that brass bands do actually play "real" music, but we don't want to assault them with "hardcore" contemporary music, therefore the brief is to find original music by "established" classical composers (ie composers the non-bander audience will have heard of) written specifically for brass band (ie not arrangements or transcriptions), dating roughly from the first half of the 20th c. Accordingly, the programme thus far (not necessarily in this order) is: Comedy (Ireland) Moorside Suite (Holst) Severn Suite (Elgar) Pageantry (Howells) Little Suite for Brass (Arnold) What I am looking for is a sixth (and probably final) piece which fits the above criteria, but is possibly a little lighter in vein, and a bit shorter (ie not "test-piece"-length), and hopefully a bit lighter on the lips ... I would appreciate your suggestions. TIA G.
