Bassoonisms coverBASSOONISMS for bassoon quartet by Howard J. Buss. The titles of its 3 movements, Basslets, Moonstruck, and Festoons, are derived in part from the spelling of the word “bassoon.” In addition to musically capturing qualities of the subjects of the titles, they also explore musical characteristics unique to the bassoon. Basslets are tiny, elegant and colorful tropical fish that when observed in large groups create a mesmerizing effect as they flit about. The word “moonstruck” refers to the condition of being out of character due to being in love. Festoons are decorative garlands of flowers, ribbons, lights, or other objects hung in a draped fashion. Score and parts are included. (8’) Grade V.

Masquerade coverMASQUERADE for oboe, clarinet, and piano by Roger C. Vogel. The atmosphere of a festive gathering with elegant and elaborate costumes is the inspiration for the six movements of this work. Featured are the dignity and regalness of an Emperor and a Queen, the humor of a Harlequin, the dignified progression of a Promenade, the capriciousness in Caprices of unexpected words and actions by the guests, and the heroic excitement of a knight-errant in Paladin. Score and parts are included.  (16’30”) Grade IV-V. Score sample: Excerpts.pdf

Totally Tubular coverTOTALLY TUBULAR for oboe/English horn and trumpet/flügelhorn by Howard J. Buss. Its 3 movements traverse a wide variety of sonic atmospheres and moods.

The performers shift back onto the oboe and trumpet for the stirring final movement, Emanations. The titles of the movements, as well as that of the larger work, refer to a number of uses of the expression ‘totally tubular.” Obviously, the instruments used in the piece are tubular. The expression is used in popular culture to indicate excitement, or that something is “rad“, cool”, or “punk.” Among surfers the expression has been used to describe particularly impressive breaking barrel waves. Players read from score, 2 scores are provided. (8’5”) Grade V. Score sample: Excerpts.pdf

Iridescence coverIRIDESCENCE for flute, clarinet, and piano by Randall Snyder musically depicts the phenomenon of certain surfaces that appear to change color as the angle of view or the angle of illumination changes. The work begins with a six-note arpeggiated chord, each note serving as the bass of a transposed reiteration. This harmony, plus the heterophonic interplay of the instruments, creates the effect of hearing the same intervals in different perspectives. A faster section based on a linear seven-note pattern follows. The trio closes with a reprise of various versions of the opening sonority. Score and parts are included. (5’) Grade V.

Reflections on the Last Post for clarinet and piano coverReflections on the Last Post for clarinet and band coverREFLECTIONS ON THE LAST POST for clarinet and piano Howard J. Buss was inspired by The Last Post Ceremony at the Menin Gate Memorial in Ypres, Belgium. It honors the thousands of soldiers who died to free Belgium from the Germans in WWI. The Last Post Ceremony was first held on July 1928 and has been performed every night since November 11, 1929 at the Menin Gate Memorial, except during the years of the German occupation of Ypres from May 20, 1940 to September 6, 1944. During the occupation the ceremony was continued at the Brookwood Military Cemetery in Surrey, England.

The work also has stirring sections signifying the youthfulness and vitality of those who fought and died on the Ypres battlefields. Score and part included.

Summer Rain for flute and piano SUMMER RAIN for flute and piano by Lee Heritage. Lush harmonic language and toccata-like textures invoke the shifting moods of a summer storm in this new work by Lee Heritage.  A lyrical prelude opens the piece with an ascending flute melody and gentle cross rhythms in the piano hinting at the storm to come.  A cloudburst interrupts this Adagio with running sixteenths in the flute punctuated by syncopated chords in the piano.  A dialogue of sixteenth notes between flute and piano moves forward with optimistic energy until dissolving into a return of the prelude.  This piece is an excellent choice as a recital opener.

Recent new issues from the January 2019:

Brass Miniatures coverBRASS MINIATURES for brass quintet by Howard J. Buss is in 4 short movements inspired by light and images reflected on polished brass: On the Edge, Refractions, Facets, and Illuminated Reflections. In November of 2018 the composer found a box labeled “1974” in a storage closet. It contained a collection of long-lost scores he had composed 4½ decades earlier. Upon examining the music it was apparent that in these works was a trove of youthful musical ideas that could be developed, polished, and edited into exciting “new” compositions. The musical content of first 3 movements of is close to that in the 1974 brass quintet. The final movement was rewritten to include elements of the original score, but updated to be closer to the composer’s current musical language. While On the Edge, Refractions, and Facets, have a decided edginess to them; Illuminated Reflections is more consonant and lyrical. It includes subtle references to material in the previous movements as well a buffed rendition of the opening melody of the first movement in its coda.Score and 5 parts are included. (7’22”)

Portraits coverPORTRAITS for horn quartet by Lee Heritage is in four movements, This and That, Waltz, Hymn, and Rip Romp. The first pulses with rhythmic energy and dramatic fanfares. The playful syncopations and percussive character of the opening serve as a cheerful prelude to a nostalgic slow waltz in the second movement. The rich harmonies of the waltz are followed in the third movement by a stately hymn that explores the full expressive power of the horn choir.  Exuberant horn rips open the final romp, announcing a return to the rhythmic energy of the first movement.  A melodic optimism permeates the romp, which closes with a final triumphant fanfare. Score and 4 parts are included. (8’44”) Grade V. Sound samples: Excerpt 1.mp3; Excerpt 2.mp3; Excerpt 3.mp3; Excerpt 4.mp3

Recent new issues from the end of 2018:

Anne of the Waves coverANNE OF THE WAVES (2018) for solo flute by Howard J. Buss was commissioned by Paul McReynolds for Anne Marie McReynolds. The 3 movements, From the Waves, Dreaming, and Glistening, explore a wide array of moods and sonic atmospheres ranging from the mystical, to the contemplative, to soaring, vibrant passages. A common rhythmic thread in the musical tapestry is adaptation of “Anne of the Waves” as expressed in Morse Code. The use of code refers to the fact that both Anne and Paul McReynolds are airplane pilots. Morse Code is still used today in aviation. The rhythms in the music derived from code appear in a variety of contexts, such as sections in a lilting 6/8, a flowing waltz, and in a more abstract, sparkling way in the final movement. However, it is not necessary to know Morse Code to enjoy this work. Musically, the rhythms resulting from its use serve as a unifying factor throughout.. (7’45”) Grade IV-V.

JAL (just a little something) coverJALS (just a little something) for solo flute by Allen Molineux, in 3 movements: Rag, Blues, and Swing. The composer states, “I decided to write it after reading a flutist's call for scores. It was mentioned in it that she liked playing blues and swing and that the work should be no more than fives minutes in duration. Initially, I wanted to have a slow blues movement followed by a fast swing, but soon realized that a spirited opener was needed before getting to the slow blues. That meant creating a three movement set with each being approximately a minute and a half long. The melodic, harmonic and rhythmic essences of each movement's traditional style are co-mingled with those of my own, which hopefully produces a fresh, yet familiar feel.”  (5’35”) Grade V.

In 1997 Lullabye for Bear won second place in the Composer’s Guild Music for Children composition competition. The reviewer wrote: “This is a beautiful work that is appealing and well constructed.

Vibrant Horizons for flute & band by Howard Buss score coverVIBRANT HORIZONS (2018) for flute and wind ensemble by Howard J. Buss was composed for flutist Brian Luce. 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.
