Band Music

Energico! for bandENERGICO! for band or wind ensemble (2014) by Howard J. Buss begins with a concise, stately section that presents harmonic and rhythmic material that is developed throughout. The festive main body of the work is in an episodic ABA-Coda format and mixes Buss’ unique style of soaring lyricism with crisp, energetic rhythms and colorful harmonies. Energico! was originally written for flute ensemble during the summer of 2008: The Long Island Flute Club with support from The Brannen-Cooper Fund commissioned it in celebration of its 25th anniversary (1984-2009). It was premiered in 2009 by the Professional Flute Choir of the Long Island Flute Club at the National Flute Association Convention in New York City. The flute choir version of the work is available from Brixton Publications. Energico! for band intensifies the energy of the original version by utilizing the full resources of the concert band, including four percussion parts. The timbral palette is expanded accordingly and includes the use of mutes, stopped horn, and other colorful devices. Energico! for band is a sophisticated, yet audience-friendly work. (10’30”) Grade V-VI.

Illuminations by Howard BussILLUMINATIONS for bass trombone or tuba and band by Howard J. Buss, originally for bass trombone (or tuba) and piano, was composed for Charles Vernon, bass trombonist with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, and the 30th Anniversary of the International Trombone Festival. This significant addition to the repertoire is written in an accessible modern style. The musical language is sophisticated, yet appealing to general audiences.  Illuminations is cast in 2 contrasting movements: The first, Reverie, is contemplative and lyrical. Beautiful, expansive melodic lines are woven into a gentle, almost mystical, musical fabric. The second movement, Urban Lights, is an energetic rondo that is strongly influenced by jazz, and in one section, funk music. “Thoughtful, tuneful, and rewarding to perform.” – ITA Journal  (19’) Grade V-VI.

   SKYLINES for trumpet (Bb or C ) and orchestra by Howard Buss is a picturesque musical urban portrait in two movements. The work is loosely programmatic in that no specific city is depicted; rather, the composer captures, in a broad manner, the essence of the big city spectacle. The lyrical and majestic first movement, Panorama, suggests the expansive grandeur of cityscape. The second, Amid the Spires, is hugely influenced by jazz and captures the dynamic energy of life on the busy streets. The trumpet and piano version was premiered by Eric Berlin, trumpet, and Nikki Stoia, piano, on May 22, 2003 at the International Trumpet Guild Conference held at Texas Christian University in Forth Worth. The orchestra version was completed in the Spring of 2006.
