    1989 - Tim Paton

    What happened in 1989? I wrote this piece for piano, and later scored it for brass band! It begins in a thoughtful mood, then very soon moves into a bluesy style. After an up-tempo dance section, and a brief re-cap of the beginning, it finishes with a majestic coda, which really shows off that special sound that only a brass band can make. Although it is called 1989, it can be any memorable year that the listener wished it to be. Good key players make this playable by any band.

    A Rachmaninoff Prelude - Rachmaninoff

    I first heard the Rachmaninoff Prelude in G minor when my brother, (Dr) Rod Paton, used to play it on the piano. The martial sound of the opening theme caught my imagination, and I knew then that this piece would sound magnificent if played by a brass band. If you like the music of Rachmaninoff, then you will love this piece. That spectacular sound that we all know, with busy, melodic bass lines, and a middle section in his well known ‘romantic’ style – (I could already hear the euphonium playing those rippling arpeggios). In response to the enthusiasm for this magnificent piece, I have lightheartedly commented that maybe he wrote it for brass band, but there wasn’t one available, so he did it for piano instead!

    A Suffolk Prelude - Andrew Duncan

    Written for the Ipswich & Norwich Co-Op Band, A Suffolk Prelude is based around five traditional tunes from Suffolk:‘Nutting Time’,‘Blackberry Fold’,‘Cupid’s Garden’,‘A Seaman’s Life’‘The Bold Richard’The piece begins on the percussion and timpani alone leading through a crescendo into the first statement of the fanfare which is derived from a motif from the tune ‘Nutting Time’. This leads into a playing of the ‘Nutting Time’ tune which is then developed as the tune is passed around the band.‘Nutting Time’ is a jolly lighthearted tune about a ‘fair maid’ who meets a handsome young farmer called ‘Johnny’ when out gathering nuts in the wood. After a pause on the tubular bells the slow tune ‘Blackberry Fold’ is presented as a solo for Flugel Horn, then as a full band version.‘Blackberry Fold’ is a touching song about a Suffolk squire who gets married well below his station to a beautiful milkmaid, simply because he loves her! They live happily ever after.The next tune to be heard is the juanty ‘Cupid’s Garden’ played firstly as a solo on the Euphonium, and again this is about the subject of love. This song is sung from a sailors prospective and he tells how he met a lovely maiden and has promised to marry her when he returns from duty at sea.The trombones then play the noble tune ‘A Seaman’s Life’. This tune seems to serve as a warning to young girls about the fickle nature and the total unsuitability of marrying a sailor! ‘Oh a seaman’s life is a merry merry life, they’ll rob young girls of their heart’s delight, they will leave them behind for to sail one morn, but they never know when they’ll return’. Despite this it is a fine tune!The last tune featured is ‘The Bold Richard’ which is played by all the bass instruments in the band. This is a song telling how the Royal Navy friggate ‘The Bold Richard’ went to battle against a French friggate destroying her and taking her crew as prisoners.Suffolk Prelude goes on to feature a slow version of the tune ‘A Seaman’s Life’ played alongside a fast version of the tune ‘Cupid’s Garden’. The opening fanfare then returns leading into a final coda section.

    Abrazo - Lucy Pankhurst

    The title Abrazo translates as ’embrace’, but is also the term given to the dancing frame of the Tango; where the partners change stance by pulling and pushing the frame, yet always remaining in physical contact with each other. This technique is suggested in the music by the soloist breaking away from the band with virtuoso interjections, before being ’embraced’ again by the full band. When the cornet soloist eventually breaks completely free in the cadenza passage, the music becomes much more agitated and moves away from the original Tango, transforming briefly into a Flamenco to finish with a flourish.

This is a compilation of pieces especially written for the recording by some of the most esteemed brass band writers of today. ‘African Adventure’ is one such piece, generously contributed by Darrol Barry in support of the ongoing work of the charity.All sets sold raise money for Brass Band Aid – a charity The Music Company has continued to actively support since 25.
