Czech Brass Band Style Inventory

(This list is not all-inclusive)

The Czech brass-band style of music primarily has come direct from the Czech and Slovak lands recently. There's no mistaking the E-flat clarinet on top, and the alternation between trumpets and smooth tenor lines with brass rhythm in the background. The band has acquired a great deal of original music from "The Old Country" through the friendship and kind courtesy of Ladislav Kubes in Prague. Mr. Kubes operates what is probably the finest Czech brass band in the world, Veselka which has toured the United States several times. Through a mutual friendship, Czech Plus Band is the only band in the United States to play the original works of this great European musician. Several additional friends in "The Old Country" have also helped the Czech Plus library grow. Czech Plus Band has a large collection of pieces by the great Czech brass band composer, Frantisek Kmoch. Additionally, Arthur, Walter and Peter Drahozal and James Vanourny (Czech Plus musicians) have arranged numerous brass-band style "specials" (arranged specifically for this particular band).
