Re: Re: Brass Band and Harp
Of course the arrangement could have added even more colour with the
inclusion of flutes and clarinets. And maybe some other woodwind, say oboes,
bassoons, that sort of thing. Maybe some French horns instead of tenor
horns, trumpets instead of cornets. And perhaps a string section.
Come to think of it, when arranging any orchestral work for brass band
there's always going to be colours missing form the performance. That's sort
of the point. In the days of digital recording technology I am astounded as
to why bands keep playing arrangements of existing orchestral repertoire,
when there is a wealth of music written specifically for the timbre of the
band. Where is the audience for these transcriptions?
Keep music original!
