Default A Balkan Brass Band?

(I already posted this before, but I realized that it was in the wrong area, so I'll just move it here.)

So, I bet none of you know who I am. I'm a composer who uses an orchestra incorrectly (At least, that's how I see it because of something that I'll explain later.)

I use an orchestra in the format of
  • Double Basses / Contrabassoons / Tubas
  • Cellos / Bassoons / Trombones
  • Violas / Clarinets / French Horns
  • 1st Violins / Oboes / Trumpets
  • 2nd Violins / Flutes / Piccolo Trumpet (Maybe)

And I use them as if I'm controlling a Balkan brass band, which I most certainly am NOT.

So, I was thinking "How about a new EWQL library that has a Balkan Brass Band included with them?"

Now, what do I mean by "Balkan Brass Band?" Well, let me tell you. The normal pieces of one of those things (which their most popular bands, Fanfare Ciocarlia & Boban Markovic Orkestar, come from either Zece Prajini, Romania, or Guca, Serbia) would consist of these:
  • Bass Tuba
  • Tuba
  • Baritone Horn
  • Tenor Horn
  • Alto Saxophone (Maybe a couple)
  • About 2-4 trumpets
  • Soprano Clarinet
  • Bass Drum (one that has a cymbal attached to the top)
And that's the sort of thing that I'd like to see in the library.

To show you an example, here's a video of two of Europe's most beloved brass bands, Fanfare Ciocarlia & Boban Markovic Orkestar, pitted against each other onstage performing the "James Bond Theme" live at Budapest in 2011. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=chvJGhpVMm0

That's all!

(Quick side note: I'm sorry that I posted that in the wrong area, but I had no idea that a suggestion thread existed. Sorry 'bout that!)
