    Gull Dances

    The composer, who lives and works at the edge of the Forth estuary in Edinburgh has been inspired here by the intriguing “tap” dance that the gulls perform on the grass at certain times to encourage worms to break the surface. The middle movements describe the birds’ “dancing” in flight, with a waltz and a slow soaring melody. The piece was written for the COOP Glasgow Brass Band on the occasion of their winning the Scottish brass band championship in 2009 and was broadcast on BBC Scotland’s “Classics Unwrapped” in November of that year.Duration: 11:00 minutesPercussion: 3 Players playing timpani, snare drum, triangle, suspended cymbal, bass drum and crash cymbalsGrade 4: Moderately Difficult 1st Section Bands
