New World Breakdown (score & parts)

By Antonin Dvorak

Detailed Description

New World Breakdown (score & parts) (with apologies to Dvorak). Composed by Antonin Dvorak (1841-1904). Arranged by E. Kiefer. Flute Oboe (optional) Bb Clarinet 1 Bb Clarinet 2 Bb Bass Clarinet Eb Alto Saxophone Bb Tenor Saxophone Eb Baritone Saxophone Bassoon (optional) Trumpet in Bb 1 Trumpet in Bb 2 F Horn Trombone Euphonium (B.C.) Baritone (T.C.) Tuba Timpani (2 drums) Percus. Classics: Remixed. Grade 1. Score & parts. Duration 2:00. Published by C. Alan Publications (CN.18910).

Driving sixteenth notes in the hi-hat and thumping syncopation in the bass create the foundation over which Dvorak's masterwork can shine. Alternating between double-time and half-time in the accompaniment, Kiefer's brief 2-minute arrangement features a lot of variety & energy.

When writing this series, I wanted to created a bridge between what young band students hear every day on the radio, TV, & movies with other types of music that they may not be familiar. I also wanted to make sure the students and their audiences have fun! This is not a new idea. We have added rock/disco beats and jazz swing to Bach and Beethoven before. This series is simply an updated version, infusing good classical music with hip hop, funk, and more. With each arrangement comes a CD (or you can download the mp3 track from the C. Alan Publications website) with an engaging drum 'n' bass beat that complements the arrangements, varying as the pieces progresses, yet remaining simple enough to make it easy to play along. The band will have a blast playing along to a booming bass while learning important classical melodies. The arrangements are easy and well within the reach of younger players. They may also be performed without the recorded track, but it's much more fun with it! As a middle school band director, I was always looking for fun ways to introduce my students to all kinds of music. I was also looking for a fun way to keep students engaged and help them realize the commonalities between their pop music and other styles. This series will help you with these objectives. Most of all, have fun! - Ed Kiefer.
