Superbrass
  You can now get your hands on some brilliant Superbrass music

You can now get your hands on the brilliant compositions and arrangements played by the incredible Superbrass Ensemble through the 4BR Shop.

And we have a trio of great full brass band pieces ready for action (you can hear them too) – so why not check them out...

Funk (Keiron Anderson)


Price: £35.00
Full brass band

The driving rhythms and lush harmonies of funk music is a perfect vehicle for the tight, dynamic playing of a solid brass band. The brass sections of Tower of Power and Earth, Wind and Fire inspired players from the 1980s onwards and being part of this type of rhythmic force is a great experience. This piece is designed to be rewarding for all the performers and of course the most important group; the audience.

Duration: 4:00 minutes

Fantasia on Themes of Purcell (Ian Shepherd)


Price: £45.00
Full brass band

Fantasia consists of three distinct sections that use thematic material from three separate pieces by Henry Purcell. The first section is based on the march from Funeral Music for Queen Mary which is dramatically dark and powerful but also uplifting.

The Second section uses the devastatingly beautiful aria Dido's Lament or When I am laid in earth from the opera Dido and Aeneas as its basis and builds to enormous proportions, unlike the original aria. The third section begins with a haunting reference to the Rondo from Abdelazer. Gradually, this builds towards an exciting re-statement of the theme in the first section to the finale.

Duration: 8:30 minutes.

Blewz (Keiron Anderson)


Price: £35.00
Full brass band

There are many harmonic forms of the blues from a standard chord sequence to a more complex set with a circle of fifths. This bright, entertaining work is fun to play and easy to programme with a hint of jazz and a swing feel, complete with a little interplay section for bass trombone and tuba, which adds to the entertainment value of this piece.

Duration: 3:30 minutes
