Concert band / wind band

This is a piece written to encourage fun in your audience and band as well. This composition is written with having incomplete small wind bands in mind. It is not unusual to see the bands (especially amateur ones) without complete accompanying section (the trumpet and two trombones). Because of this, the accompaniment is written the way the Trombone 2 part may be omitted. If the accompanying section is complete, the trumpet and 1st trombone must play the bracket noteheads, where provided. Another quite common issue is absence of the E-flat clarinet. In this score, the first voice of the clarinet section is written in E-flat as well as in B-flat, so the parts are interchangeable. Trumpeters’ range skills are kept in mind as well. There are bracket noteheads provided. Playing of them is to be set by the 1st trumpet player. Where signed "Hraj po 2-hé" = play 2nd time only.

Translation guide: klarinet = clarinet; trubka = trumpet; tenor = baritone T.C.; baryton = baritone B.C.; trubka dopr. = accompanying trumpet; trombon (oblig.) = obligatory trombone; trombon (nepov.) = optional trombone; bicí = drums

Which method of viewing music should I use?

Score Exchange has two methods to display previews of music: seView which uses regular html and javascipt and the Scorch plug-in from Avid which needs to be downloaded and installed onto your computer. Both have advantages and disadvantages:


seView, is the most compatible option. You should be able to view music on all modern web browsers including most mobile devices. Even if your device does not support javascript you should still be able to preview at least page one of the music.

You do not need to install any additional software to use seView.


Scorch is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. As modern web browsers are updated, Scorch is no longer compatible with many browsers. Scorch has never been compatible with mobile devices and some web browsers on Mac computers.

If your web browser does not install Scorch automatically, you can click here to download and install scorch manually.
