ANOTHER WORLD STOOD HERE coverANOTHER WORLD STOOD HERE for flute ensemble (piccolo, five C, alto, bass and optional contrabass) by Howard J. Buss was composed immediately after an ancient oak tree was removed from his neighbor’s yard. The composer states, “The crew worked for several days to dismantle and haul away the enormous tree. I had lived next to it for a quarter of a century. The morning after they finished the job I visited the site were the mighty tree once stood and felt a deep sense of loss. It had become part of my life, and I reflected on how it served as home for countless birds and other animals, how it survived numerous hurricanes and lightning storms, and remembered the precious shade it provided during the long Florida summers. It is sorely missed. This work is dedicated to the memory of this ancient friend.” 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. Score and parts included. B469 $20.00
Sound Samples: Excerpt 1 (the beginning).mp3, Excerpt 2.mp3, Excerpt 3.mp3, Excerpt 4 (the ending).mp3

Concerto for Marimba and Percussion Ensemble_Buss_coverCONCERTO FOR MARIMBA AND PERCUSSION ENSEMBLE by Howard J. Buss was composed in the early months of 2017 and is dedicated to Robert McCormick. The percussion ensemble uses four players. This work is comprised of 3 continuous, unnamed movements that follow a haunting and somewhat mysterious introduction. References to the opening phrases of the introduction are made throughout the composition. The first movement is in two main parts: The first resembles a chain of joyous episodes, each flowing into the next as the musical narrative unfolds. This gives way to a series of passages that become increasingly developmental. Obvious references to the introduction are interspersed with elements of the first section as well as new material. The second movement is in a lively 6/8. It is in ternary form features a substantial marimba cadenza in the central section. The finale movement revives the joyful character of the first and includes a short intense passage influenced by jazz before building to a rousing finish. (15’) Solo part: Grade VI., ensemble parts: Grade IV.  Complete set (score & parts) B467CS  $48.50, Score only B467S $25.00, Parts only B467P $23.50

Scherzi coverSCHERZI for piano by Allen Molineux - These miniatures are six different ways of looking at the scherzo genre. The first deals with allowing the performer to freely play the material. The second, at times, hints at a jazz-like swing style. The third is a special kind of quodlibet in that it uses snippets of well-known scherzi for piano and also for orchestra with numerous appearances of the Chopin “Scherzo No. 2” holding it all together, while some actually interact with each other. For example, Brahms, Clara and Robert Schumann do get in a bit of a tangle and Bruckner seems to be at odds with the early Romantics of Beethoven and Schubert. The fourth is a conversational contrast between herky-jerky and groove motion. The fifth, which is the briefest, is a contest between a short staccato figure and an ever-expanding legato one. The final scherzo is a distorted ragtime piece where the left hand avoids the typical march-like accompaniment pattern. (9’50”) Grade V. B770 $16.50 Sound samples: Scherzo1.mp3; Scherzo2.mp3; Scherzo3.mp3; Scherzo4.mp3; Scherzo5.mp3; Scherzo6.mp3

Six Dialogues coverSIX DIALOGUES “Reflections on Plato” for flute and horn by Roger C. Vogel. Few other authors in the history of Western philosophy can compare with Plato in the depth and range of his work. His dialogues have long highly esteemed in their treatment of justice, virtue, and love, as well as political, religious, and other social concerns. Socrates is most often the protagonist in the dialogues with his dialectic method of inquiry, a rigorous conversation consisting of short questions that lead to the heart of any matter. At odds with Socrates are the sophists, teachers whose mastery of rhetoric, the art of persuasion, seeks to convince the listeners to accept their propositions without critical inquiry. Each of the Six Dialogues is a reflection on one aspect of Plato’s dialogues: The Dialectic, Hymn to Love, Virtue, Rhetoric, Justice, and The Sophists. Two scores are included. (16’) Grade V. B960 $16.50

Three Sackbuteers_Buss coverTHE THREE SACKBUTEERS ENTER VALHALLA for trombone trio by Howard J. Buss was named winner of the 2018 American Trombone Workshop’s National Composition Competition sponsored by the U. S. Army Band “Pershing’s Own.” It is a fantasy piece in which the composer imagines the entrance of three sackbut players into the enormous hall of Valhalla. An improbable collage of specious ideas and historical anachronisms combine in dream-like manner and are embedded in the musical tapestry of this work. The sophisticated musical language of the composition combines with the programmatic fantasy implications and audience participation to create a rousing concert feature. For trios doing outreach concerts in the schools, it affords the opportunity to discuss the history of the trombone in a way that is fun and sure to engage the students. (6’30”) Grade V. B475 $16.00

Vibrant Horizons coverVIBRANT HORIZONS for flute and piano by Howard J. Buss was composed for flutist Brian Luce in the autumn of 2017. While not referring to any one individual in particular, this work is suggestive of a person’s journey from one reality to another. It is in 3 movements: New Beginnings (5’15”) has an optimistic character, and the spirited thrust of the music projects movement in a hopeful and positive direction. The contemplative second movement, Old Thoughts (5’45”), juxtaposes beautiful, atmospheric sections with brooding passages, as if to suggest a tension between desirable elements of the past with those that prompted the individual to seek new horizons. The final movement, Circles (6’30”), addresses the fact that once one is settled into a new situation, routines develop. When viewed over time these routines often resemble circular patterns. Score & part included. (17’30”) Grade V. B474 $20.00
