    Four Cities Symphony - Rodney Newton

    This piece was commissioned by the National Contesting Council as the 4th section test piece for the 2008 Regional Brass Band Championships of Great Britain. This symphony (the composer's 12th) has four movements played without a break. The first centres on two aspects of the city of London: its history and pageantry and its role as a busy modern metropolis.The second movement depicts Paris, its street cafes and boulevards and riverside walks, in the form of a romantic waltz. The third movement is constructed around the Gregorian chants of the Lord's Prayer (Pater noster, qui es in caelis) and the Creed (Credo in unum Deum) in an evocation of the city of Rome. After a powerful climax, mysterious tramping footsteps are heard as the ghosts or a Roman legion march through the city by night. The vision fades and the pater noster is heard once again, before the movement is brought to a close with the ancient Ambrosian chant, Christus Vincit, Christus Regnet, Christus Imperat.The final movement is an evocation of the city of Moscow, with its great historic buildings, its turbulent history and its fiery traditional music. At the outset a rather dour folk-like melody is heard which is transformed into a lively Cossack dance.This work is dedicated to Howard Wilson, former principal euphonium of City of Coventry Band who, in 1972, introduced the composer to top section brass band contesting.Rodney Newton, September 2007

    Funk Engine - Ryan Howells

    Funk Engine was commissioned for the Intermediate Section of the 2016 National Youth Brass Band Championships.When I was commissioned to write a piece for the championships I decided that I wanted to create something a bit different to standard brass band repertoire. I decided that the best way to do this was to go a bit out of my comfort zone and explore some styles of music that I have yet to experiment with.I have always been a great lover of Jazz, Funk and Big Band music and the sounds associated with them. In Funk Engine I have tried to capture some of these sounds, however, I am a brass-bander at heart and as such I’ve tried to create a fusion of styles that hopefully combines the best of brass band and jazz into one piece.

    Furioso Polka - Johann Strauss II

    Austrian composer Johann Strauss II (1825-1899), is well known for his prodigious output of waltzes, polkas and operettas. He was also a notable violinist and conductor, and made many tours, particularly of London and the USA. He was the son of Johann Strauss I, and collaborated in a few works with his composer brother, Josef. Furioso Polka is perhaps one of Strauss's lesser-known polkas, but it is certainly one of the most exciting. It was composed in 1862, while Strauss lived in Vienna.

Veering away from the original with the help of a driving Cha-Cha beat, a piano Montuno line in the baritones and featuring an opportunity for Conga players to revel in the moment, God Rest Ye Merry, Cha-Cha Men is a lively and fun take on this Christmas classic.

    Grand March - The Wizard - Phil Lawrence

    Having played nearly all the great marches both in the brass band and orchestral repertoire, I was keen to create a cross between the best of brass band marches, and two of the great English orchestral composers of grand marches, Elgar and Walton.It was the slower 2nd subject sections of Elgar and Walton's marches in particular which I wanted to replicate and here is the result.Phil Lawrence.
