DRAGE/ANDRESEN

ARRANGEMENTER & KOMPOSITIONER

 

 

Sammen med Daniel Drage Lotzkat har jeg under navnet DRAGE/ANDRESEN arrangeret og komponeret mange musikstykker. Vi har skrevet for brass-ensemble, for Brass Band, for militærorkester, for harmoniorkester og for symfoniorkester. Bl.a. har vi skrevet koncerter for basbasun, for tuba og for slagtøj, hvor akkompagnementet både er instrumenteret for symfoniorkester, for harmoniorkester og for klaver.

Alene eller som en del af DRAGE/ANDRESEN, har jeg skrevet musik til mange “Special Events”, F.eks:

SYMPHONIC BRASS

Når messingblæsere fra symfoniorkestre skal spille som ensemble er det altid et problem at finde repertoire fordi de fleste besætninger falder ”udenfor” og ikke matcher orkestrets sammensætning af messinginstrumenter. F.eks. indeholder  stykker for ”10-piece ensemble” kun et horn men 4 basuner, mens andre stykker for større besætninger kan indeholde stemmer for 6 trompeter, 4 horn, 4 basuner og 2 tubaer. Derfor har vi, DRAGE/ANDRESEN, skrevet en række stykker for SYMPHONIC BRASS der passer perfekt for messingbesætningen i et symfoniorkester. Se en samlet liste af musikstykker under publikationer/noder/sheetmusic/symphonic brass.

SYMPHONIC BRASS

When the brass players from a symphony orchestra wants to perform as an ensemble it is always a problem to find repertoire for the right formation because most combinations of instruments does not match. Music for “10-piece ensemble” include only one horn but 4 trombones, and other pieces for larger ensembles may contain parts for six trumpets, four horns, four trombones and two tubas. None of these match the brass instruments in the symphony orchestra.  Therefore, we, DRAGE/ANDRESEN, have written a number of pieces for SYMPHONIC BRASS  perfectly suited for the brass sections in a Symphony Orchestra. For a complete list of music look under publikationer / music / sheet music / symphonic brass.
