Brass Choir or Ensemble, Concert Band, British Brass Band scoring with alternative parts set for traditional band brass instruments - Intermediate - Digital Download
Composed by Bedrich Smetana (1824-1884). Arranged by Charles Decker. Romantic Period, Opera, Repertoire, Graduation, Recital. Score, Set of Parts. 44 pages. Published by Charles Decker Music Press (S0.401437).

Item Number: S0.401437

Originally for orchestral brass and now scored for traditional British Brass Band instrumentation, this elegant and powerful fanfare served as the prelude to Smetana's 1881 opera "Libusa" and can  feature the brass section of a concert band. This accessible, moderately difficult edition includes a complete set of alternate parts for standard wind band brass instruments ( B-flat cornet substitute for soprano cornet in E-flat, F horns substitute for E-flat alto horns, and substitute all low brass parts set in bass clef). The audio file is an actual brass ensemble performance and not a computer playback of the score.
