The European Brass Band Association is pleased to announce the composers who have been commissioned to write the set test pieces for the 43rd European Brass Band Championships, Palanga, Lithuania (25 April - 3 May 2020). The host organiser, Palangos orkestras, has commissioned new works for each of the four competitions with the support of the Lithuanian Council for Culture. 

 The set tests for the Championship and the Premier Youth Section are being written by leading European composers of band music, Philip Sparke and Jan de Haan respectively, who have also been working closely with a number of Lithuanian composers new to writing for brass band. Two of them, Vaida Beinariene and Kazys Daugela, have been commissioned to write for the Challenge and Development Youth sections respectively.

 EBBA President Ulf Rosenberg comments, “We are delighted that the team in Palanga has commissioned four new works to mark the first visit of the European Championships to Lithuania, including two composers from the country’s rich and diverse musical culture.”
