Ragtimes and Habaneras for Brass Ensemble - arrangement by Brian Bindner.

This work was originally written for brass band (see there). At the composer's request, his former pupil Marcel Wengler wrote an arrangement for Symphonie wind band, which is equal to the original in everyway. Here Henze and Wengler have given wind players a work which successfully combines a popular style and to some extent extremely witty elements with the resources of new music. It is excellent concert music for advanced and Professional orchestras.
Hans Werner Henze belongs to a small circle of internationally known composers of serious contemporary music. In his operas, symphonies, and music for ensembles and chamber music groups, as well as in his contributions to music for amateurs, there are works with a distinctive sense of form, delicate tonality and rhythmic variety which nonetheless never lose sight of that dimension of humanity.
