    The Great Gate of Kiev - Phillip Littlemore

    Modest Mussorgsky was a close friend of the young artist and architect Victor Hartmann, and his death in 1873 plunged Mossorgsky into a deep depression. The following year a memorial exhibition in St. Petersburg displayed Hartmann’s paintings, costumes, architectural designs and sketches. Mussorgsky’s visit to it, combined with his desire to write a piece in his friend’s memory, inspired him to compose his Pictures At An Exhibition for piano. A suite of ten movements, with a recurring Promenade theme, it is one of the composer’s most famous works and regarded as a showpiece for virtuoso pianists. It is perhaps the orchestral transcription made by Maurice Ravel in 1922 that is now the most famous version of it. This arrangement opens with a brief excerpt from The Hut on Fowl’s Legs , which was based on a painting of an elaborately carved clock depicting Baba Yaga, a horrible tiny witch that feasts on human bones. The tenth, and final picture in Mussorgsky’s masterpiece is commonly referred to as The Great Gate of Kiev , although it’s literal translation is The Bogatyr Gates — a Bogatyr being a hero figure in medieval East Slavic legend. It features a grand main theme that is interspersed with a more solemn hymn-like secondary theme. The work closes with a grand final rendition of the Promenade theme that almost grinds to a halt at what must be the foot of what were to be magnificent ceremonial gates (although they were never actually built!).

    Infernal Ride

    Tripartite in form, Infernal Ride is mercurial and virtuosic, yet with a more static middle section. The work reflects the mad-cap chase of Ichabod Crane’s final ride on his horse, Gunpowder, in the story by Washington Irving, namely The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. Often an atmosphere of driven fear pushes the music forward only briefly stopping for breath. The work closes with flourishes in rapid succession, perhaps with the hapless Ichabod meeting his unfortunate end! A sound clip of this piece can be found here Item Code: 0-571-56990-0 Duration: c.7'40"

    Les Preludes - Phillip Littlemore

    Les Pr?ludes is the third of Liszt’s thirteen symphonic poems and by far the most popular. Liszt was the originator of the ‘symphonic poem’, a one-movement orchestral work which bears a relationship to a literary work, a painting, an historical event or a legend. The genre was later adopted by many other composers. Les Pr?ludes opens with a slow introduction, which represents the principal theme, before exploding into a bold and vigorous version dominated by the trombones before giving way to a more lilting version in the horns. The music is developed with martial, romantic and pastoral adaptations before a brilliant coda gives the theme a grand, heroic transformation for a stirring end.?

    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)

    Robin Hood Prince of Thieves - Kaymen, M - Broadbent, D

    A Robin Hood for todays audiences, light years removed from the romantic vision of Errol Flynn. This is a much darker Robin Hood (with Kevin Costner’s uncomfortable American accent), introducing characters (Morgan Freeman’s Azheem the Moor) that are not part of the original legend. Without doubt Alan Rickman’s campish Sheriff of Nottingham stole the film. Kamen’s main title theme whips the listener to another time and place – medieval magic!3rd section +
