    Sweeney Todd Suite - Phillip Littlemore

    For almost two centuries, the enduring legend of the maniacal barber of Fleet Street, Sweeney Todd, and his savoury human pies has inspired terror in the hearts and minds of the public, whether through the printed page or the theatrical stage. Malcolm Arnold's ballet, Sweeney Todd , was first staged in 1959 by the The Royal Ballet Company and choreography by John Cranko. The music was later adapted as a concert work and it is from this version that this brass band arrangement is made. The original concert suite lasts some 20 minutes, but this version has been shortened to a more manageable eight minutes. An optional cut is also marked reducing the piece to six minutes, making it ideal for brass band concerts. Item Code: 0-571-56918-8 Duration: 8'00" (6'00" with cut)

    Petite Suite de Ballet - Eric Ball

    This composition consists of four ‘miniatures’, simple in construction, yet not without technical demands upon the players.The music is for a ballet which so far exists only in the imagination! Like most ballet, it has a touch of the fantastic, and must be interpreted with a light, deft touch.The first movement, Parade, brings many characteristics on to the stage, marching perkily, leggily, with almost puppet-like movements.In the next movement, Pas Seul (Solo Dance), one lone figure holds the stage, with a mixture of grace and sauciness. At the end he (or she) runs off with a snap of the fingers.The third movement is a Minuet. A chosen few, richly garbed, perform this stately, courtly dance, while the rest of the company look on at some ritual in which they are not allowed to join.The final Ensemble commencing with the return of the lone figure, gradually brings the whole company to the stage. Various groups come forward for a few moments, and then rejoin the general pattern of the dancing. Towards the end a stately procession is formed, but this finally breaks up in a sudden flurry of leaping and capering, and in a moment, as though at some magic call, the dances have disappeared, whilst the sonorous tones of the final bars of music follow them with a rather disapproving air.Our little fantasy is over.

    Daphnis & Chlo?: (The Second Suite) - Ravel, M.

    This revised (2012) version of the complete Second Suite from RAVEL's DAPHNIS & CHLOE arranged by Howard Snell, has been chosen as the test piece for the Championship Section of the NATIONAL BRASS BAND CHAMPIONSHIPS OF GREAT BRITAIN of 2012 at the Royal Albert Hall.

The Conductor's Score is produced especially in A3 format due to the complexity of some passages of the arrangement. Further copies of that particular score can be purchased through a separate entry in this Catalogue of Brass Band Music.
