At Brass Music Online, you can order a custom arrangement of practically any piece of music and we will tailor it to your specific ensemble.
Are you looking for Bach instead of Nielsen? Do you need Trombone, viola, and tenor sax instead of 2 violins and cello? Does your trumpet player have a solid double G but your trombone player can only cover one octave? No problem!
What can you order from BMO?
You might want a violin and piano sonata switched to solo flute with string trio accompaniment. Or you might want a quartet reduced to duet. Or maybe your chamber group wants to perform something from the full orchestral repertoire: symphony, overture, concerto, divertimento, suite, concerto grosso, fanfare, dance, march, opera aria, etc. Whatever the original instrumentation, we can work with you to adapt it to your specific ensemble.
Your custom arrangement can be for any combination of instruments. We generally support from 1 to 30 parts in an arrangement, and you can select from 58 different instruments. So your chamber group is almost certainly covered.
How much does it cost?Because of the custom nature of BMO, each arrangement is priced separately. The price usually depends on the availability and quality of the original source composition, the creative effort in adapting the original composition for your needs, and the mechanical effort in editing and formatting. Once you submit your request, we will quickly research that particular composition and send you a firm price quote, usually within 24 hours. Once you agree to the price and submit a PayPal payment, we will start work on your arrangement and notify you as soon as it is finished.
Just to set expectations, our minimum cost for any arrangement is $75. Most "typical" arrangements are a few hundred dollars. Long compositions (like a full-length symphony) and arrangements that require labor-intensive formatting will be more expensive. (Purchasing an existing arrangement from BMO´s Catalog is much cheaper - often just a few dollars. And there's a very good chance we already have some music there that will fit your group.)
How long does it take?Our standard turnaround time is 3 weeks from the date we receive full payment. We can sometimes accommodate faster delivery, but there may be an additional charge. In rare cases, it might take longer but we will always tell you ahead of time.
