3 Fanfaren - 3 Fanfares
Kees Vlak wrote "3 Fanfares" about different topics. You should perform them separately, for example as opening piece of a concert. „Euro Fanfare“ is very festive; it celebrates a modern Europe, where different countries and cultures find a new solidarity. „Alpen Fanfare“ opens with a bass note, sounding like from far away. The melody builds up from low instruments to high instruments and creates a picture of a sunrise above the majestic Alps. „Royal Fanfare“ is for an official and festive welcome of a royal couple that gracefully enters a room full of noble guests.
From S to XXL – Music for any band instrumentation
"Basic Sound" is a series by RUNDEL Music Publications offering an attractive and diversified repertoire to bands at grade 2 or 3 level, of sizes S to XXL. "Basic Sound" allows for performances by groups with limited instrumentation. Minimun requirements are clearly bracketed in the score.
The smallest size (S) of "Basic Sound" is based on the following instruments:
one (1) flute, two (2) clarinets, one (1) alto-saxophone, two (2) trumpets, one (1) trombone, one (1) baritone/euphonium, one (1) tuba and percussion.
Each edition also includes a full set of parts (XXL). That way the conductor can adjust the pieces of the "Basic Sound" series to his band's instrumentation.
