New Concert Band Music


Ignacio Cervantes (1847 - 1905) was a Cuban pianist and composer who achieved fame and recognition in his native country. Cervantes is best known for his considerable influence in blending various aspects of creole musical culture with that of Cuban music for a totally unique and appealing sound tableau. Four of Cervantes' colorful dances are included in this brilliant setting for wind band. They are Danzas Nos. 1 and 2, the melancholy Soledad, the lively Picatazos, and a reprise of Soledad.

An accomplished composer and conductor in his day, Julius Fucik wrote more than 400 marches, polkas and waltzes. Even one hundred years after his death, the patriotic themes in his music remain popular in the Czech Republic as well as throughout Europe and the US. Fanfare Sounds represents the highest standards of the Austrian regimental march with its stylishly dignified tempo, crisp articulations and, as an added feature, resplendent trumpeting fanfares that are brilliantly displayed through the piece.

Also titled Aria With Diverse Variations, this monumental opus for harpsichord was composed and published late in Bach's career. Few works have excited scholars, performers, writers, and audiences more than the Goldberg Variations have. The composition represents a unique blend of complexity, beauty, and massive scope. In this setting, the aria and all 30 variations are presented in different combinations of instruments making it the perfect vehicle for featuring various chamber ensembles within the larger performing group. It is a significant contribution to the list of serious repertoire for wind bands. This transcription was performed prior to publication as part of the memorial service for Lorin Maazel at his Castleton Festival Theatre in Virginia in 2014.

This ragtime masterpiece was composed in 1907 and is named after the beautiful variegated southern flower. What make this particular work stand out from other ragtime pieces is the oddity of its structure, rhythm, and melody, which could be the result of the collaboration of these two composers. The first two strains were written by Louis Chauvin, a brilliant young pianist from St. Louis, and that last two strains were composed by the master, Scott Joplin. The opening has a decidedly melancholy air about it that could serve as a premonition of Chauvin's early death at the age of 27. The work then concludes with a more upbeat feeling as the musical bouquet is tied together through the genius of Scott Joplin. A truly unique and appealing ragtime work.

Joseph F. Lamb is rightfully regarded as one of the "Big Three" composers of classic ragtime music, the other two being Scott Joplin and James Scott. Lamb, who was of Irish descent, was the only non-African American of the group. Unlike Joplin and Scott, Joseph Lamb's fame outlived the era of classic ragtime, and he along with Eubie Blake were the only personalities from the original ragtime era that took part in the ragtime revival of the late 1950s. Ragtime Nightingale is a "heavy rag" and displays Lamb's individual style, delightful syncopations and jaunty spirit that appear so pleasingly throughout the piece. A new dimension to concert programming.

Jacques Offenbach's operetta Voyage to the Moon tells the enchanting story of a prince that sets out on an adventure to travel to the moon. Premiered in Paris in October of 1875, the production was loosely based on the popular Jules Verne novel From the Earth to the Moon and spared no expense in making it a major theatrical event. This lively and exuberant overture contains various themes from the operetta including a beautifully lyric horn solo before concluding with a brilliant cancan-like presto that Offenbach is famous for. The musical flair and dance-like exuberance brilliantly reflect the grand spectacle of the stage presentation.
