Bagatelle - Antonin Dvorak (1841 - 1904 )  - Arranged for Academic Brass Ensemble by Mogens Andresen.

Antonin Dvorak was a master of such small pieces. The best known is probably his SLAVIC DANCE. The present piece, BAGATELLE is from a collection of several of the same kind op.47. Dvorak played Viola in a string quartet, and in the cellist's home where they practiced, there was a harmonium. For the sake of variety, he then wrote these pieces for 2 violins, cello and harmonium.

With the introduction of the “new” valve brass wind instruments during the 20th century, the number of civilian and military wind bands in both Europe, the United States and Russia exploded. There was no real standardization of combination of  instruments, and the size ranged from large giant wind orchestras to small brass ensembles.

The repertoire was mostly national anthems, marches and waltzes, but often also by arrangements of smaller pieces written by the greatest composers of the time. Copyright protection did not exist at that time, but the composers were really only happy with the advertising given, when their music was played by the wind bands.
