Noten für BlasorchesterOld MacDonald had a farm
Here is a Rocking variant of a well known song. There are a lot of openings for the wind players to make animal sounds, or maybe some of the youngest children or spectators could be like soloists, making these sounds. The sky is the limit. The soft part may be a cosy cat? It is possible to split the drum set part so one player is playing the bass drum, while another take care Snare drum and cymbals. The cowbell has a higher priority than the Bongos/Congas. Thank you for playing this piece.Bjørn Morten Kjærnes (b 1952) is one of Norway?s most published wind band composer and arranger. Starting out as a 7-year-old Euphonium player (and later,trombone) in a local school band, he has learned this instrumentation from the inside and as an arranger, composer and conductor he has been working with wind bands all his life. The first education was to be a music teacher, but then composing and arranging became more important and led to composition studies at the Music Academy of Oslo. As a composer he is inspired by an aural based serialism, and with a strong influence of jazz, many of the pieces have mild dissonances and tonal centrums. Some of this can also be heard in some of his arrangements. Children?s experience of music has always been important to Kjærnes and working as a teacher, and later headmaster of a music school led to developing many of the flexible instrumentations that today are published. Today he is working as the editor of wind/brass band edition of Norsk Noteservice AS and as a conductor. As the leader, for many years, of the Norwegian Band Federations adjudicating committee, he is also much used as a guest conductor and adjudicator in local and national competitions.
