Two Bagatelles by Alfred Reed (1921-2005). Arranged by Andy Clark. Concert band. Build-A-Band Series. Grade 3.5. Extra full score. Composed 2010. Duration 5 minutes, 9 seconds. Published by C.L. Barnhouse (CL.026-3978-01).
Alfred Reed's' "Two Bagatelles" was first published as a trombone quartet, then enlarged to a brass choir and finally to a full concert band setting. Andy Clark has taken it back to its beginnings and adapted it for the Barnhouse Build-A-Band Series, so that students in very small bands will get a chance to perform music by this master composer. Sounds great if the four basic parts are covered among the instruments present.
