    English Dances, Set 1, Op. 27: No. 1 - Sir Malcolm Arnold - Ray Farr

    English Dances, Set I, opus 27, is a light classic composition that was written for orchestra by the British composer Malcolm Arnold in 1950. The set contains four dances that continue without pause: the individual movements are indicated by the tempo markings. The work came about at the request of Bernard de Nevers, at the time the head of publisher Alfred Lengnick & Co., who asked Arnold to write a suite of dances as an English counterpart to Dvorak's Slavonic Dances and Bartok's Romanian Folk Dances. The premiere took place in the spring of 1951, played by the London Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by Sir Adrian Boult. Following the success of the first set, De Nevers asked the composer to write a second one, which Arnold completed the next year (Op. 33). The Andantino from the first set has been skilfully arranged and orchestrated for brass band by Ray Farr.

    Bulgarian Dances (Part II) - Franco Cesarini

    Bulgarian folk music has a long tradition and numerous typical characteristics, such as particular dissonances and complex, irregular rhythms. In Bulgarian Dances (Part II) (which can be performed together with the previously published title Bulgarian Dances) Franco Cesarini has preserved the original spirit of Bulgarian folk music, yet has imbued it with a symphonic character and brought it into the concert hall. The three different movements give us a meditative, moving folksong and a lively dance, before a distinctly symphonic part leads to a glittering finale.

    Folk Dance and Carol - Tim Paton

    This music aims to capture the feeling of a Village celebration. It begins with a lively Jig, where the music joyfully dances around the band. It then settles down to two verses of that beautiful melody by Gustav Holst, “In the Bleak Mid-Winter”. It then quickly ‘gets on it’s feet’ again, and finishes off the celebration with the Dance and the Carol mingling together.

    SLAVONIC DANCE No.8 (Brass Band) - Dvorak, Antonin - Littlemore, Phillip

    Antonin Dvorak composed his first set of eight Slavonic Dances in 1878. The music is lively and overtly nationalistic, although the tunes themselves are all original and are not taken from any Slavic folk dances. Slavonic Dance No.8 is high-spirited and in the style of a furiant, the boldest of Czech folk dances. Although written in a 3/4 metre throughout, Dvorak creates cross-rhythms that shift this metre in to 2/4, which is an important characteristic of the furiant.

    Jumpety Jump - Oystein Olsen Vadsten

    This is an original piece of music composed by Oystein Olsen Vadsten, inspired by old Norwegian folk dances. "Jumpety Jump" actually started out as a "reinlender" (Norwegian Folk Dance) which origins from Rhinland. The reinlender is well disguised in this arrangement by adding the shuffle- and swing style to it.The piece is first of all meant as a "happy go lucky" - tune, but is full of rhythmical and technical challenges. Its put up as a jazz-tune, first presenting the melody, then "improvisasations" by the different instrument groups, before going back to the first theme.The title "Jumpety Jump" refers to the kind of jumping feeling the shuffle groove gives.
