Little Waltz was inspired, as you can guess, by some famous Russian Waltzes from the first half of the 20th Century. Both Khachaturian’s Waltz from "Masquerade" and Shostakovich’s "Waltz No. 2" are masterpieces but I wanted something with the essence of these pieces but without the length and stamina. Whilst it will never sit alongside these works, I hope it will provide a little taste of Russia for your Park concert. Click on the YouTube video below to hear the whole arrangement.
Brass bands can often suffer with attendance on Park jobs.
The idea behind the Park Life series is to create a set of light music arrangements that can be played by half the band if necessary.
They are also designed not to be too hard on the lips for the cornet players.
All this makes them playable by youth and training bands as well making them a natural extension to the Easiband series.
The Park Life Series offers entertaining and effective musical content without putting pressure on players, making arrangements playable by top section and youth section bands alike.
