Transcriptions for Wind Orchestra and Small Band
Our publications come as printed full scores with the parts on CD-ROM as PDF files in both letter (8½" x 11") and A4 (metric) size paper. We also provide alternate parts for special needs, such as transposed low brass parts in both bass and treble clefs. With the parts as PDF files on CD-ROM, you can print as many copies as necessary, and it frees you from the time-consuming search for missing parts or pages.
Here are sample pages in letter size and A4 to see if you have an appropriate PDF viewer. (This is only the first page of a multiple page part.) Free downloads of the latest version of Adobe Acrobat Reader are available at www.adobe.com. Also, we highly recommend a laser printer for best results when printing from the CD-ROM.
The Wind Orchestra transcriptions are for standard symphonic band, concert band, or sometimes wind ensemble. In most cases, cues are carefully provided throughout so that these transcriptions can be performed without complete instrumentation. However, sometimes extended instrumentation or complete instrumentation is required due to the nature of the piece.
The Small Band transcriptions are for bands that are small in size, but not necessarily beginners. They face difficulty finding music that is both playable and pleasurable. We offer classical transcriptions that can be performed with only 15 or so players without compromising the integrity of the original. These transcriptions are also suitable for wind ensemble, or standard symphonic band and concert band for outdoor performance.
Please browse both the Wind Orchestra Catalogue and Small Band Catalogue, and click on the catalogue number for more detailed information, if available. Currently, we are preparing KM 010 Orpheus in the Underworld Overture by J. Offenbach. More titles will become available over time, and our catalogues will expand in the future.
