    King Arthur (Scenes from a Radio Drama) (Brass Band - Score and Parts) - Britten, Benjamin - Hindmarsh, Paul

    This colourful suite incorporates the Introduction, a dramatic Wild Dance, some of the music underscoring the scenes for Galahad and The Holy Grail, and two vivid battle scenes, ending with The Final Battle and Apotheosis. King Arthur (scenes from a radio drama) for brass band should not be confused with a much longer orchestral suite which Paul Hindmarsh devised from the same source in 1995.

    Dance Macabre - Saint-Saens - Gavin Somerset

    A full arrangement of the spectacular work by Saint-Saens. Certainly a test for any top section band, both technically and rhythmically. Every section has an important role to play (yes, even Bass Trombone!). The main theme was used in the BBC's drama "Jonathan Creek", letting the audience recognize the piece immediately. Great as an alternative to an overture concert piece, this is one for every player of the band to get their teeth stuck into.

    Sprites & Flares - Christopher Bond

    Written for & Commissioned by Leyland Band for Brass in Concert 2015Sprites & Flares (2015), refers to the uncertain activities of sprites (upper atmospheric lightening) and solar flares (solar activity from the sun which cannot penetrate the earth's atmosphere) and uses these two ideas as a basis for the kind of musical material heard within the work - dramatic, swirling motifs, often of a virtuosic nature.The work's dramatic opening ensures the first thirty seconds are high in energy and full of impact. Following this, the music dies down and presents an ethereal atmospheric section, perhaps reflecting the calm before the storm. Before long, the music takes a turn for dramatic, fast, virtuosic playing, all reflecting the theme of the work, and indeed remains in this style through to the close, gaining momentum and becoming ever- more triumphant as the work reaches its close. A huge ending is heard, full of excitement and drama, but more importantly grandeur and rich harmonic-chords.The work was commissioned by and written for Leyland Band and its conductor, Thomas Wyss, as the finale to its 2015 Brass in Concert programme, premiered at The Sage, Gateshead, on 15th November 2015.

    Echoes - Andrew Stevenson

    Echoes is an original light concert item based on the style of an Irish Air. The core of the piece is a melody which is first heard in the euphonium and then moves onto cornet and then later becomes a tutti passage. As well as this melody, there are also moments in the piece where some motifs are heard in counterpoint; this is where the title Echoes comes from. These counterpoint ideas symbolise the motivic sounds bouncing around a chasm and echoing back.The music gives lots of chances for bands to show off their sound as well as the principle players in their solos. There is also a wide scope of opportunities for conductors to insert their own musicality into the music to bring out emotion and drama. Echoes is a very simple and effective piece, it is also extremely catchy and easy to listen to.

    Lament - to the Unknown - Andrew Stevenson

    Lament ? to the Unknown was written in the memory of Rob Southwick, who passed away in Easter 2012. Rob was a talented musician who worked with many local music and drama groups around Doncaster; this piece pays homage to the immense musicianship and talent of Rob.The piece itself is very simple, both rhythmically and technically. The tempo is slow and calm, representing a reflective hymn. The basis of the piece is built on dissonant chords and atmospheric percussion which creates a wonderful soundscape of colour. The falling fourths of the distant trumpet calls emulate feelings of sadness and mourning and the somewhat disjointed melodies give the piece a mysterious sound. The piece grows to an emotional climax before settling down for a chilling end.

    Audivi Media Nocte - Oliver Waespi

    Audivi Media Nocte is based on the eponymous motet by Thomas Tallis from the 16th Century - a work that holds great fascination for Oliver Waespi. During the process of composition, various chord sequences and rhythmical structures emerged that led the work in the direction of a musical drama, with elements of a concerto grosso and solos for different soloists. An innovative, virtuoso and gripping work that can also take you far in competitions!
