About this Piece
Red Folk Suite is a selection of small Brazilian folk songs that are known widely by around two hundred million people. These songs are a part of school life up through adult life, and children begin to learn them as babies. It is a rich inheritance not only for one country, but for the whole world.
This version with four songs — SÃO JOÃO DARARÃO, A CANOA, POBRE CEGA, A MARÉ ENCHEU — was written for instrumental groups with five melodic parts and three percussion parts. Red Folk Suite is part of a major project dedicated to music composed for brass and winds without any specific indication of instrumentation (open score), which makes this piece ideal for beginners in any kind of brass and/or wind ensemble.
