The UE ‘Concert Band Collection’

Reading time: 1 min. James Rae woodwind concert

James Rae is the man who puts fun into woodwind and brass teaching. His many compositions, especially in the jazz and blues idioms, have often featured on examination syllabuses. Recent years have seen his publications of easy flexible ensembles for younger players and now he turns his attention to the wind band.

In his new series ‘The Concert Band Collection’, he has written exciting new pieces for the standard concert band line up. Attention is given to each instrument so that the technical and musical requirements do not exceed UK Grade 2.5. An optional piano part will provide ‘stuffing’ and moral support for the young players who will quickly enjoy James’ catchy and imaginative music. Each volume contains two titles.

Each volume features two titles:

UE21751This one includes ‘Big Screen Fanfare’, a fanfare in the style of a Hollywood movie theme and the cool ‘Rockbuster’.

UE21752This one includes the haunting and nostalgic waltz ‘Secret Fairground’ and a dynamic masterpiece called ‘Blue Strut’.
