    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

    Blenheim - Arthur Butterworth

    Heroic Overture Op.43This concert overture is an evocation of the spirit of heroism associated with Blenheim and the illustrious names of Marlborough and Churchill. The slower middle section is a contemplation of history at a distance of time - nostalgic and perhaps regretful of the passing of former glories.In form it is neither strictly of the classical French nor Italian styles but it is an amalgam of the two, approximating more to Minuet and Trio form, it has a slow introduction followed by an allegro which is interrupted by a more contemplative middle section. After this, the material of the allegro is recapitulated and the work ends with a brief coda based on the opening.
