    Academic Festival Overture - Johannes Brahms

    In 1881, Brahms accepted the degree of Doctor of Philosophy at Breslau University in Poland.For the occasion, he wrote his Academic Festival Overture, for orchestra, basing it on student songs. It is a splendid example of a serious composer writing a piece of musical “fun”.Romantic in style, the composer’s great skill is evident in his linking of the tunes, and his different treatment of them.In performance, there is rich scope for expression, for tenderness, boisterousness and high spirits, as well as thoughtfulness and an underlying purpose are all present in the music.The Overture ends with a typically Brahmsian climax, built into a welter of instrumental colour.The arrangement for brass band is by Denis Wright.

    In Memoriam - Arthur Sullivan - Neville Buxton

    Written before teaming up with W.S. Gilbert, the first performance of "In Memoriam" was in 1866 at the Norwich Festival. Just before Sullivan started the composition, his father passed away. Sullivan turned his grief to the completion of this overture. It is also thought that the work was initially inspired by a poem of the same name by the Lord Tennyson Alfred. The overture enjoyed much success during Sullivan's lifetime, although sadly is seldom heard today. This arrangement of the work is the 2013 set test piece for the Butlins Mineworkers Open Brass Band Festival, 2nd section.
