    The Breeze And I - Ernesto Lecuona - Neville Buxton

    The songs of Ernesto Lecuona may have been covered by more exotica artists than any other composer, yet they're relatively unknown except to fans of traditional Latin music. It's a shame, for Lecuona was a multi-talented artist and a pioneer of Latin music in America. A Lecuona song has everything an exotica lover could ask for: mystery, excitement and rhythm. "The Breeze & I" is no exception, starting with a Bolero, then moving from Beguine to Swing before returning to the Bolero to finish. Recorded by Jimmy Dorsey with Bob Eberly singing Al Stillman's lyrics, this tune became a number one hit in the U.S.

    Bolero - Ravel, M.

    'A piece for orchestra without music' was one way that Ravel described his Bolero, one of his last compositions before illness finally subdued him. 'Simply a seventeen minute crescendo for orchestra' was another version of his opinion, although this reduced arrangement is closer to 7 minutes due to the lesser forces available to a brass band. Whatever his own thoughts on the matter, the Bolero remains one of the most recognisable and enjoyable of musical masterpieces.

    The Wondrous Cross - Dean Jones

    The Wondrous Cross was written as the result of a request from Tim Parker, Bandmaster of the Staines Band of The Salvation Army for something new and inspiring for Easter and based on the tunes of 'Rockingham' and 'O Waley, Waley'. The composer has fused the old and the new tunes firstly with a chorale setting and then in a 'bolero' style. This has created a moving work that will engage the listener into the heart of the Easter story.

    VICTORY FOR ME! (Brass Band Set) - Wilfred Heaton

    Spartacus, (Finale) - Khatchaturian, A.

    The ballet score contains much well-known music, but this selection is less familiar than much of the score. The story of Spartacus, the slave who attempted the overthrow of Rome and nearly succeeded, is an extraordinary one. Khatchaturian's music is as highly coloured as ever, creating a wave of excitement that builds up in the same manner as Ravel's Bolero.

    The Witches' Sabbath - Berlioz, H.

    Arranged as part of a series of finishers (together with Pines of Rome, Procession to the Minster, Entry of The Gods, Bolero, Daphnis, American in Paris etc., etc.,) the full title is 'The Dream of the Witches' Sabbath'. It should have been 'Nightmare.' Shock tactics rarely continue to work for very long in music, buut here they do. This arrangement contains one unique technical feature of its own.

    Pacific Dreams - Jacob de Haan

    Pacific Dreams describes the experience of Miguel, a traveling composer from Spain who, feeling somewhat alienated from his homeland, is wandering through an area of Sydney known as The Rocks. At a small outdoor market in a typical street of this oldcolonial neighbourhood, he discovers a print of William DeShazos painting "Pacific Dreams" Portrayed in the painting is the surf of one of the exotic islands in the Pacific. Next, with the impressive Sydney Harbour Bridge looming over the narrowstreets of The Rocks, he envisions sultry Pacific beaches. Suddenly a theme he once composed about the lakes in Japan comes to him. Is it the Asian influences present in cosmopolitan Sydney that bring this theme to mind? Or perhaps the waters aroundSydney, over which he could sail to Tahiti? He is uncertain. Could this same theme be used to create a new composition about his feelings for the metropolis Sydney? How then to work his Pacific Dreams into the mix? Miguel is certainly no fan ofHawaiian music. Mayby he could use the vocabularies of islands like Hawaii and Tahiti, their beautiful vowel combinations being sung ad libitum by a mixed choir.With these ideas and his newly purchased print of "Pacific Dreams", he boards the Metroat Circular Quay. He has a final glimpse of the harbour and the Sydney Opera House as the train races into the ground. On to the hotel! To work! He must compose!Maestoso : Miguel is impressed as he gazes upon the Sydney Harbour Bridge. And yet, hewants to go away from this city. Away, to an exotic island in the Pacific.Steady Rock : In the Rocks, musicians are playing at a square. Miguel basks in the atmosphere but at the same time he is fantasizing about Hawaii and Tahiti.Andante Lamentoso :In his hotel room, Miguel is feeling sad and lonely in this big city. He takes comfort in his "Pacific Dreams".Allegro : Miguel boards the boat that takes him from Darling Harbour to Circular Quay. In his mind he is traveling on to Hawaii. Or is ithome, where the bolero is playing? He is pulled back to reality by the skyline of Sydney.
