    SYMPHONIC DANCE No.3 (Brass Band) - Rachmaninoff, Sergei - Littlemore, Phillip

    Completed in 1940, the set ofSymphonic Danceswas Sergei Rachmaninov's last composition. The work is fully representative of the composer's late style with its curious, shifting harmonies, the almost Prokofiev-like grotesquerie of the outer movements and the focus on individual instrumental tone colours throughout.Rachmaninov composed the Symphonic Dances four years after his Third Symphony, mostly at the Honeyman Estate, 'Orchard Point', in Centerport, New York, overlooking Long Island Sound. The three-movement work's original name was Fantastic Dances, with movement titles of 'Noon', 'Twilight' and 'Midnight'. When the composer wrote to the conductor Eugene Ormandy in late August, he said that the piece was finished and needed only to be orchestrated, but the manuscript for the full score actually bears completion dates of September and October 1940. It was premiered by Ormandy and the Philadelphia Orchestra, to whom it is dedicated, on 3rd January, 1941. This arrangement is of the last dance and is a kind of struggle between theDies Iraetheme, representing Death, and a quotation from Rachmaninov's ownVespers(also known as the All-night Vigil, 1915), representing Resurrection. The Resurrection theme proves victorious in the end as the composer actually wrote the word 'Hallelujah' at the relevant place the score (one bar after Fig. 16 in this arrangement).Duration: 3:45

    Canzon duodecimi toni ?? 10 no 3 (1597) - Gabrieli: Eric Crees Performing Edition

    Another major key for two five-part choirs beginning with stately counter- point. The lower second choir takes on a more subdued role before a triple time section and a grand ending. Dur 2'45"Gabrieli is one of the truly great composers but sadly neglected. His compositions, moreover, are rarely of great technical difficulty, making them ideal for mixed ensembles and school use. We hope this edition will bring these magnificent pieces to a wider audience, especially the young.• Each set contains a score and parts for brass, woodwind and string instruments to allow performances by practically any combination as well as brass only.• This new Performing Edition of Gabrieli's Sacrae Symphoniae and Canzoni e Sonate was prepared for the recording by the LSO Brass on Naxos Records:Vol 1 - 8553609Vol 2 - 8553873Vol 3 - 8554129"...the playing is superb...three CDs which embody all of Gabrieli's instrumental ensemble works, the first such collection in the world".....'Musician'"...scrupulously prepared new edition".....'BBC Music Magazine'"...notes, both scholarly and informative...an exciting series".....'Guardian'
