Info

The Austrian composer Fritz Neuboeck has written "San Ludovico", a classical chorale for winds and percussion. With its variable instrumentation (Basic Sound), it is also very suitable for smaller ensembles.

The title “San Ludovico” refers to the religious character. The chorale - originally an unaccompanied liturgical chant of the Roman Catholic Church - has evolved over the centuries. Many great Romantic composers, such as Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy or Johannes Brahms created chorales in different variations and instrumentation.

In recent decades, numerous chorales for wind band were composed using the tonal range and colours of woodwinds, brass and percussion.

At the beginning of "San Ludovico", the woodwinds play the melody part, followed by an eight-bar lyrical tenor solo, after four bars with flutes in upper voice. In the middle section, woodwinds and brass are in balanced relationship. At the end the full chorale sounds in the brass with a figured upper voice in the higher woods.

The calm and solemn “San Ludovico” chorale is also suitable to improve intonation and tonal balance.
 



BASIC SOUND
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.
