Katerina Ismailova (Suite). By Dmitri Shostakovich (1906-1975). Arranged by Jose Schyns. For Concert Band. Grade 6. Full score and set of parts. Duration 17:00. Published by Baton Music (BF.BM147-SET). Dmitri Shostakovich' opera Lady Macbeth of the Mtsensk District was with more than 200 performances very succesful in as well Russia as abroad. But in 1936 Stalin attended a performance and it was immediately condemned in an editorial in Pravda. The opera only reappeared, sanitised as Katerina Ismailova, long after Stalin's death, in 1962. The Suite from Katerina Ismailova consists of the entr'actes linking some of the scenes: these orchestral passages contribute to the dramatic momentum, giving an almost ciematic quality to the work's flow and develops in an symphonic character.

Ballata della Gnomidi by Ottorino Respighi (1879-1936). Arranged by Jose Schyns. For Concert Band. Grade 6. Full score and set of parts. Duration 15:00. Published by Baton Music (BF.BM203-SET). Ottorino Ottorino Respighi (1879 - 1936) had already begun to attract international attention for his orchestral tone poem Fontane di Roma (Fountains of Rome) (1917) when he wrote his Ballata della Gnomidi, a grotesque orchestral work that was destined to remain virtually unknown. This transcription of the symphonic poem, made by Jose Schyns, became one of the highlights at the Kerkrade WMC in 2005.

Mascarade For Brassquintet. (And Band). By Serge Lancen. For Concert Band. Solo Concerts / Various Solo. Solo and Band Series. Grade 5. Score and Parts. Published by Molenaar Edition (ML.011880100). This is a very special work, written as it is for brass quintet (trumpets I and II, horn, trombone, bass-tuba) and symphonic band, but also available in a version for brass quintet only, which enlarges the practical possibilities for performance enormously. Lancen has certainly exceeded himself in this brilliant work. Following its premiere during the W.A.S.B.E. Congress in Boston in 1987, the 'Boston Globe' wrote: 'Far simpler but its own way more original was the 'Maskerade for Brass Quintet and Band' by Serge Lancen. Its eight movements are unabashedly tonal, throughout a cheerful carnival of simple, sincere ideas worked out with skill and good humor'. The premiere was given by the Dutch National Youth Symphonic Band conducted by Jan Cober.

Symphonie de Paris by Serge Lancen. For Concert Band. The Best Original Pieces for Concert Band / City / Original Pieces. Original Pieces. Grade 6. Score and Parts. Published by Molenaar Edition (ML.011321100). This composition, written in 1973, was commissioned by the French Ministry of Cultural Affairs and is dedicated to Desire Dondeyne who premiered it with the Musique des Gardiens de la Paix at the Paris Palais des Congres on 27 February 1975. The piece was recorded in 1994 by the Orchestre d'Harmonie de la Police Nationale (National Police Band) conducted by Pierre Bigot. Serge Lancen included the following text with the score: "The Symphonie de Paris is a musical walk through the capital. Once the visitor has arrived, the composition evokes successively: the familiar cheerfulness of the popular quarters, the hustle and bustle of the great boulevards, the mysterious elegance of the Champs Elysees, the poetic charm of the banks of the river Seine, the impressive Notre-Dame cathedral looking in the mirror of the Seine. Then we have the Rive Gauche (Left bank): the young and dynamic Latin Quarter, Saint-Germain-des-Pres an ideal place to stroll. The walk ends near the Eiffel Tower and during the ascension we really discover Paris with its monuments, its avenues, the meanders of the Seine. Finally we enjoy the unique sight of the entire city perspective.".

Remerciements by Serge Lancen. For Concert Band. Original Pieces. Original Pieces. Grade 4. Score and Parts. Published by Molenaar Edition (ML.012319100). Remerciements' (Thanksgivings) is the fourth religious composition by Serge Lancen. It is a song of praise and thanksgiving, piously devoted to God. As the composer is very happy to live here on earth he wants to express this happiness in his musical language, accompanied by a text glorifying our Creator. The work is written for symphonic band. The text, quoted from or inspired by Psalms and prayers, can either be recited in whatever language or sung in French by a baritone or mezzo-soprano, accompanied by a harp or an organ. There is the 'Sign of the cross' which can be heard up to 12 times. The work consists of five movements: the first one is a call for prayer. In the second one the composer expresses his Thanksgivings to God. This movement is taken from Lancen's 'Poeme Oecumenique' (1975) then sung by a soprano accompanied by symphony orchestra. Now it is only played by the band. The third movement is a homage to God using the theme of the 'Benedicamus Domino', dating from the tenth century and already quoted in the introduction. The fourth movement is serious and moving, it implores the beloved ones who have left us. The finale glorifies God. Hallelujah.

Le Mont St. Michel by Serge Lancen. For Concert Band. Countries / The Best Original Pieces for Concert Band / Original Pieces. Original Pieces. Grade 6. Score and Parts. Published by Molenaar Edition (ML.011471100). Serge Lancen (Paris 1922) undoubtedly belongs to the top of contemporary European wind music composers. His MANHATTAN SYMPHONY (1962), CAP KENNEDY (1970), SYMPHONIE DE L'EAU (1986) and MISSA SOLEMNIS (1989) are now part of the classical modern symphonic band repertoire. Lancen always writes in the French tradition and is often inspired by folkore, the beauty of the French landscapes and even the great architectural monuments of his country. In this fine suite of four symphonic sketches he was inspired by the splendid site of the 'MONT SAINT-MICHEL'. The work dates from 1976 and was premiered by the French National Police band, conducted by Pierre Bigot, at a concert in the Paris 'Palais des Congres' on May the 4th 1977. It evokes the splendour of one of Western Europe's great monumental abbeys. The mount arises amidst a symphony of mist and sand; the visitor goes through the main gate and enters the medieval town. He walks up to the abbey church and discovers the magnificent panorama. He recovers some time in an unexpected patch of green and admires the mighty fortress. Finally he reaches the actual abbey and visits the inspiring church and the sober refectory. At sunset, the abbey complex casts fanciful shadows on the beach and soon, in the light of the spots, the spire with the Archangel Michael lits up, high above the sea and the sand, right on the border between Normandy and Brittany.

Le Chant de L'Arbre by Serge Lancen. For Concert Band. The Best Original Pieces for Concert Band / County Scenes/Four Seasons/Sun/Light / Original Pieces. Original Pieces. Grade 6. Score and Parts. Published by Molenaar Edition (ML.011536100). The one movement symphonic poem Le Chant de l'Arbre (The Song of the Tree), dedicated to the composer's friend Thirault, was also commissioned by the French Government. This composition, published in 1980, was premiered at the Paris concert hall "Palais des Congres" on 6 June 1980 by the "Musique de la Police Nationale," conducted by Pierre Bigot. It was chosen as test piece for the seccion segunda of the 1989 wind band contest Certamen Internacional de Bandas de Valencia (Spain) and was recorded on compact disc by the famous Tokyo Kosei Wind Orchestra, conducted by Frederick Fennell, in December 1988. The composer wrote the following comment: "The symphonic poem 'Le Chant de l'Arbre' is a tribute to the life of a tree throughout the seasons. In summer, the tree is sparkling in the sunlight although violent thunderstorms make it shake seriously from time to time. When autumn has come, its leaves turn golden before they fall and whirl around before falling on the ground. Then winter sleep takes hold of the tree. Finally here is spring again and everything regenerates so the tree starts blooming again.".

Ricercare (1949) by Hendrik Andriessen (1892-1981). Arranged by Koekelk.. For Concert Band. Arrangements of Classical Pieces. Classic Arrangement. Grade 6. Score and Parts. Published by Molenaar Edition (ML.011879100). The original 16th century Ricercare was actually a vocal work without words. Instrumental music is in search of its independence: the content was so to say a musical invocation. The Ricercare in this case is an invocation of the various themes - seemingly contradictory - yet forming a symphonic unity, which is attained by their contrast and their dialogue in counterpoint. One of these themes is formed by the tones B - A - C - H (B = German for B-flat; H = German for B-natural). This Ricercare has nothing to do with the old Motet character.

Commedia Dell'Arte by Joseph Horovitz (1926-). For Concert Band. Original Pieces / The Best Original Pieces for Concert Band. Masterpieces. Grade 6. Score and Parts. Published by Molenaar Edition (ML.012271100). As the title implies, the work was inspired by the comic theatrical tradition developed in Italy from the 16th century onward, by troups of travelling actors. However, it originated long before during the roman period, and it influenced the much later comedies of Gozzi, Goldoni, Moliere, Lope de Vega, as well as the English Pantomime and the Viennese folk-play of the 19th century. Like many of my compositions, this piece has obvious balletic and pantomimic elements and performers and audience alike, should be encouraged to imagine characters such as Harlequin, Columbine, Pantaloon, Truffaldino, Scaramouche, together with pompose guardians, languishing daughters, serenading lovers and cheating servants.

Der 116. Psalm by Franz Schreker (1878-1934). Edited by Christopher Hailey / Iris Pfeiffer. For SSA choir, 2 flutes, 2 oboes, 2 clarinets, 2 bassoons, 4 horns, 2 trumpets, 3 trombones, timpani, harp, organ, 2 violins, viola, cello, double bass [piano for rehearsal only]. German title: Der 116. Psalm. Psalms, German. Complete orchestral parts. Language: German. Composed 1900. Duration 14 minutes. Published by Carus Verlag (CA.751019). With Language: German. Psalms, German. Franz Schreker was an important representative of the "Wiener Moderne" and one of the most successful opera composers at the beginning of the 20th century. To conclude his studies at the Vienna Conservatory he set Psalm 116 for women's choir and orchestra (1900) and dedicated to his "beloved teacher Robert Fuchs, in reverence." Fuchs, the highly respected composition teacher, was a close friend of Johannes Brahms and a champion of Brahms's romantic classicism. Thus, Schreker's psalm setting closely follows the tonal language of Brahms. In 1901 Psalm 116 was first performed in a concert of the Gesellschaft der Musikfreunde in Vienna, and was first published in the same year by the Viennese publisher Adolf Robitschek. The scoring of the psalm is identical with that of Brahms's Deutsches Requiem, which would suggest and facilitate a performance of both these on the same concert program.

Score and critical commentary. 304 pages. Published by Paul Hindemith Gesellschaft (SD.49011954). ISBN 9790001127332. Paul Hindemiths Werk weist enzyklopadische Zuge auf: er bedachte von Anfang an alle musikalischen Gattungen und realisierte einige seiner musikalischen Gedanken und Projekte nicht im einzelnen, abgeschlossenen Werk, sondern in Werkzyklen und funktional unterschiedlich gebundenen Musiken, die sich voneinander abheben und erst unter dem Aspekt des Gesamtwerkes einander erganzen. Paul Hindemith selbst hat denn auch eine Gesamtausgabe seiner Werke nicht nur gewunscht, sondern auch projektiert: erhalten ist von ihm eine detaillierte Liste Ungedruckte Stucke fur eine etwaige Gesamtausgabe. In die im Neustich vorgelegte Gesamtausgabe aufgenommen werden alle vollstandigen Werke in allen vorliegenden Fassungen. Entwurfe und Fragmente von Werken werden im Anhang des entsprechenden Bandes veroffentlicht, Skizzen im Kritischen Bericht und in der Einleitung des Bandbearbeiters ausgewertet. Jeder Band enthalt das Vorwort der Herausgeber der Gesamtausgabe, Kurt von Fischer und Ludwig Finscher, eine Einleitung des Bandbearbeiters, die uber Entstehungs- und Wirkungsgeschichte informiert, authentische Angaben zur Auffuhrungspraxis macht und erhaltene Einspielungen der Werke durch Paul Hindemith selbst diskutiert, sowie den Kritischen Bericht. Die Hindemith-Gesamtausgabe ist eine kritische, wissenschaftlich fundierte Edition, die zugleich den Bedurfnissen der musikalischen Praxis Rechnung tragt. Sie wird auch schon durch die zahlreichen Erstveroffentlichungen von Werken Paul Hindemiths der Hindemith-Forschung eine neue Basis bieten und der musikalischen Praxis neues, philologisch abgesichertes Material zur Verfugung stellen.

Metamorphoseon by Ottorino Respighi (1879-1936). Arranged by Matty Cilissen. For Concert band. Symphonic Series. Grade 5. Score and set of parts. Duration 0:16:45. Published by Beriato Music (BT.0604-1-312). Ottorino Respighi (1879-1936) is one of the most significant 20th century Italian composers. In particular, his works Pini di Roma, Feste Romane and Fontane di Roma are very well known and his general virtuoso composing style appeals strongly to the imagination. In Metamorphoseon, the composer varies the same theme in 12 steps (modi). This is a magnificent work in a beautiful transcription by Matty Cilissen.
