Divertissements_coverDIVERTISSEMENTS for Bb clarinet and percussion by Howard J. Buss was composed in the autumn of 2016 for clarinetist Kathleen Mulcahy. This colorful composition is designed so that either one or two percussionists can perform it. The 3 movements take listeners through a wide range of emotions and sonic atmospheres. Lyrical sections that are playfully juxtaposed with forceful passages characterize the first movement, Temporal Intrigues.The hauntingly beautiful second movement, Mystic Eyes, has a dreamy, meditative quality. Fusional Escapades is energetic and, with the exception of the clarinet cadenza, the performers are equal partners. The sometimes-playful character of the music is reminiscent to that which occurs in the first movement. (12’40”)  Grade V. B462 - score & parts - $28.50

Brom Bones for clarinet choir coverBROM BONES for clarinet choir (1 Eb, 3 Bb, 2 Eb Alto, 2 Bb Bass, and 1 Bb Contrabass) by Howard J. Bussmusically depicts the character and exploits of Washington Irving’s dashing prankster in The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. The work is in 5 movements: Following the energetic and heroic Overture, in The Smoke Out tone clusters represent the buildup of smoke in Ichabod’s singing school. Chorale-like passages suggest the music of the singers in training. The movement ends in transition, as Brom Bones and his small band of pranksters gallop off to their next adventure. The third movement, The Schoolhouse Caper, combines very aggressive and topsy-turvy passages with humorous, plodding interjections. Ichabod’s Romance begins as an enchanting unaccompanied ballad, which is abruptly disturbed by a cacophony of raucous clarinets, suggesting the whining of Brom’s mocking dog. Reverent hymn-like sections serve as the backdrop to heartfelt solo passages, which are again disturbed by Brom’s annoying dog. The movement ends as it began, with the beautiful bass clarinet solo. The intense final movement, Night Encounter, depicts Ichabod’s frightening and fateful run-in with the Headless Horseman, suspected by some to be Brom Bones in disguise. (13’15”) Grade V.

Trombone Graffiti coverTROMBONE GRAFFITI for trombone quartet or ensemble by Howard J. Buss was composed in the fall of 2016 and is dedicated to The American Trombone Quartet. While writing this work the composer envisioned trombonists creating graffiti, not in the usual manner with paint and chalk, but with sonic gestures. The composition is musically sophisticated, yet is designed to appeal to a wide range of audiences. At times the music is characterized by bold, colorful swoops of sound, often with idiomatic glissandi. In other sections, staccato passages suggest a pointillist approach to creating the graffiti. Throughout, an undercurrent of edginess and electrifying tension permeates the music, as if to suggest the graffiti artists face the risk of getting caught in the act of producing their art. (7’14”) Grade V.

Alien Loop de Loops for trumpetALIEN LOOP DE LOOPS for trumpet and electronic recording by Howard J. Buss is a playful fantasy piece designed to appeal to a wide range of audiences. The title refers to both programmatic and technical elements in the work. The composer envisioned a performer outside in an open area during an air show by an alien craft. During the opening section he/she plays unaccompanied, but then is joined by the recording, which contains sounds generated by traditional instruments as well as an "alien" voice, the spacecraft, and various electronic effects. Technically, the title refers to how the recording was made. It consists of numerous sound loops combined to form an imaginative and picturesque sonic tapestry. The publication includes sheet music and a CD (attached to the inside of the back cover) that contains a performance track and the accompaniment track. (6’47”)

The intimacy between the singer and the pianist highlights the emotions expressed in the text and the music.

Zephyrs of the Dawn coverZEPHYRS OF THE DAWN for flute choir by Howard J. Buss is an enchanting work that showcases the agility and beautiful sonority of the flute choir. The character of the music is meditative and at times conveys a hint of portent, as if to suggest that these gentle, yet persistent early morning breezes contain within them hints of the events of the coming day. The musical scoring is colorful and inventive, yet does not require the performers to venture into extreme registers or use extended techniques. It is scored for piccolo, five C flutes, alto flute, bass flute, and optional contrabass flute. Because of its modest technical demands and musical sophistication, this audience-friendly work is appropriate for both intermediate-level and advanced flute choirs. (5’) Grade IV. B466 $22.00
