    Prelude & Mazurka - Delibes - Barry Strickle

    The ballet "Coppelia" was first premiered in May 1870, unfortunately its successful run was interrupted by the Franco-Prussian war. Thankfully, the ballet still went on to become the most performed opera at the Opera Garnier in Paris. The ballet brought Delibes his first taste of success, encouraging him to carry on to other great works such as Lakeme, and Le Corsaire. Arranged by Barry Strickle, the Prelude and Mazurka from Coppelia will be instantly recognizable to most, and features regularly on Classic FM.

    Prelude and Chorale - Stijn Roels

    Prelude and Chorale is a scintillating, dynamic opening piece based on the brilliant finale from the earlier concert work Aureus. The latter work is built around a magnificent hymn—which also forms the common thread running through this overture.As the title suggests, the work begins with a modern 'prelude': a prologue to the actual hymn. The beginning of the hymn, especially, serves as the source of the thematic material. The hymn melody itself is immediately embellished by a counter-melody and supported by a rhythm section of bass and drums. This all leads to an energetic passage in which the proverbial stops are pulled out once more.

    A Suffolk Prelude - Andrew Duncan

    Written for the Ipswich & Norwich Co-Op Band, A Suffolk Prelude is based around five traditional tunes from Suffolk:‘Nutting Time’,‘Blackberry Fold’,‘Cupid’s Garden’,‘A Seaman’s Life’‘The Bold Richard’The piece begins on the percussion and timpani alone leading through a crescendo into the first statement of the fanfare which is derived from a motif from the tune ‘Nutting Time’. This leads into a playing of the ‘Nutting Time’ tune which is then developed as the tune is passed around the band.‘Nutting Time’ is a jolly lighthearted tune about a ‘fair maid’ who meets a handsome young farmer called ‘Johnny’ when out gathering nuts in the wood. After a pause on the tubular bells the slow tune ‘Blackberry Fold’ is presented as a solo for Flugel Horn, then as a full band version.‘Blackberry Fold’ is a touching song about a Suffolk squire who gets married well below his station to a beautiful milkmaid, simply because he loves her! They live happily ever after.The next tune to be heard is the juanty ‘Cupid’s Garden’ played firstly as a solo on the Euphonium, and again this is about the subject of love. This song is sung from a sailors prospective and he tells how he met a lovely maiden and has promised to marry her when he returns from duty at sea.The trombones then play the noble tune ‘A Seaman’s Life’. This tune seems to serve as a warning to young girls about the fickle nature and the total unsuitability of marrying a sailor! ‘Oh a seaman’s life is a merry merry life, they’ll rob young girls of their heart’s delight, they will leave them behind for to sail one morn, but they never know when they’ll return’. Despite this it is a fine tune!The last tune featured is ‘The Bold Richard’ which is played by all the bass instruments in the band. This is a song telling how the Royal Navy friggate ‘The Bold Richard’ went to battle against a French friggate destroying her and taking her crew as prisoners.Suffolk Prelude goes on to feature a slow version of the tune ‘A Seaman’s Life’ played alongside a fast version of the tune ‘Cupid’s Garden’. The opening fanfare then returns leading into a final coda section.

    In Thee Is Joy (Chorale Prelude) - Bach, J.S.

    Positively explosive, brilliant and joyous, this organ Chorale Prelude is as exhilarating as anyone could wish. Bach was often asked by his church employers to tone things down a bit, and this piece is probably the kind of thing they had in mind. Of course he paid no attention.

    Prelude and Liebestod (Tristan) - Wagner, R.

    The beginning and end of Wagner's opera Tristan and Isolde are two of the most frequently played of the composer's operatic excerpts in orchestral concerts. Following in the footsteps of Alexander Owen who produced an arrangement of the Prelude alone at the turn of the 19th to 20th century, with the capabilities of Bands being now so much further advanced I took up the challenge of a version for our times together with Isolde's broken-hearted Song of Death that closes the opera.Glorious music, that is still 'modern' today in painting the romance of the title characters. Difficult, yes, but rewarding, absolutely.

    Centennial Prelude - Jan Van der Roost

    This short opening music was composed on commission of the symphonic band of Jan Van der Roost's village (= Kontich near Antwerp / Belgium). In 1991, this community band celebrated its 100th anniversary. After composing commissioned pieces from different countries (even from Japan), this was the most 'near' commission he ever received indeed!It is a short but varied piece, featuring all sections of the band. After a short introduction, played by the brass instruments, a crisp rhythm starts and boxes the main theme. After a second theme, played by brass and percussion, a short melodical passage brings some 'rest'. At the end, the fanfare of the introduction reoccurs.Although this "Centennial Prelude" isn't a really demanding piece, it sounds colourful and energetic. It has been recorded on CD by the band of the 'Royal Dutch Airforce' and the 'Desford Colliery Brass band'.
