This week we have a two-for-one special for New Music Friday. Bob Lipton has created two titles using the same themes for different grade levels. We have Garam Masala for beginning orchestras and Mumbai for intermediate orchestras.
Bob Lipton is a tuba player and retired music teacher. During a trip to India, he heard music of all sorts everywhere. There was Bollywood and classical and folk. Upon his return home, he sought to record his impressions of that music in these two titles. He is careful to note that these pieces are not meant to be an authentic representation of Indian musical styles, but are rather, by necessity, his interpretation of them.
