    Jazz Suite No. 2 - Waltz No. 2 - Dimitri Shostakovich - Johan de Meij

    In 1938 Shostakovich composed his Second Jazz Suite at the request of the recently founded State Orchestra for Jazz conducted by Victor Knushevitsky. This suite was originally scored for a complete symphony orchestra to which four saxophones, an accordion and a guitar had been added. The Jazz Suite no. 1 in three movements, composed in 1934, had been written for a smaller ensemble. The title 'Jazz Suite' is rather misleading, as the composer definitely uses the style of light music. Back in 1928, the twenty-two-year-old Shostakovich had already composed some light music. A bet among friends to make an orchestration of the popular song 'Tea for Two' in less then one hour time, caused him to compose 'Tahiti Trot'. Shostakovich easily won the bet as he completed the original and witty arrangement within only forty minutes!

    Third Suite (I. March, II. Waltz, III. Rondo) - Jager, Robert

    Composed in 1966, this three movement work is performed regularly in contests and festivals as well as on concert band programs globally. The unique setting of this original work provides subtle challenges to the performers and conductor with enhanced interest for the listener. The movements are "March"-non-characteristically scored in alternating 4/4 and 3/4 time, "Waltz"-similarly juxtaposed in alternating 3/4 and 2/4 time, and the raucous "Rondo." Robert Jager's "Third Suite"-a distinctive work with charming character. (8:45)

    ZOO BALL (Part 2 in B flat) - Strachan, Keith

    2nd Clarinet, 2nd Trumpet/Cornet, Flugel HornThe Zoo Ball is a suite of twelve light-hearted pieces for the young wind of brass band by Keith Strachan.It can be seen from the titles that the young player is introduced to a variety of dance rhythms that are both fun to play and enjoyable to listen to.It is scored in five parts (some of which divide in places) so can be played by ensembles of aroung ten players up to full band. When a fuller instrumentation is available, teachers and conductors are encouraged to vary the scoring as appropriate, particularly in repeated sections. This will allow players to rest occasionally and add changes of colour to the band sound by avoiding excessive doubling.Contents:Lion's PrideHippo's WaltzKangaroo HopEel CongaElephants' MarchSnake, Rattle and RollPanther TangoPenguin PolkaBuffalo BluesBlack Mamba SambaTiger RagMonkey Swing
