2020 New Releases for Concert Band


Julius Fucik was born in Prague, Bohemia in 1872 and died in Berlin, Prussia in 1913. A bassoonist and composer, he later became the most renowned bandmaster on the Continent. This masterful march creates a vivid display of musical imagery as it begins in 6/8 time depicting the majestic galloping rhythm of horses associated with the cavalry. The march then continues in alla breve meter featuring bold and profound counterlines in the baritone voices and gallant regimental trumpeting. A real march gem that shines with proud ceremonial splendor.

This delightful stop-time two-step dance was first published in 1902, and its appeal is as widespread today as it was then. A new sense of vibrancy and optimism is reflected in this early 20th century dance that features the wild "new" rhythms of ragtime which substantially changed the nature of dance. Lively and rhythmic, this work displays all the features that made the style so popular and shows the composer to be a true master of the genre, earning him the title "The King of Ragtime." Syncopated, bright, and energetic, it's an entertaining addition to concert programs. Members of the band become a part of the act by rhythmically stomping along with the music.

Reward your students while taking the audience on a thrilling sonic journey.

It opens with a majestic brass fanfare complemented by colorful woodwinds and percussion. A variety of textural and stylistic presentations leads to the closing flourish that rises from the bottom of the sound canvas to the top for a final resplendent fanfare restatement.

A celebration of those who deserve great honor! The triumphant opening is brilliantly stated by the trumpets and answered by a flourish of shimmering woodwinds. Brass and percussion build up to a contrasting theme and a slower section of warm, resonant harmonies and shifting, contrasting textures. Grand and majestic, the opening material then returns to close with the two main themes layered for a decidedly heroic and triumphant finish.
