    How To Catch A Killer... - Jonathan Bates

    DURATION: 5 minutes. DIFFICULTY: Championship. 'How To Catch A Killer.' was composed as the energetic finale to Carlton Main Frickley Colliery Band's 2nd placed 'Murder in the Night' set at the 2018 Brass In Concert Championships. The piece is built upon a quite complex motif in the tuned percussion, exploring an almost sci-fi-esque soundworld as the identity of the killer is figured out. After the identity of the killer is revealed, there is a brief chase scene before the work draws to a dramatic and fiery conclusion. .

    An American Tale - Dan Price

    Written as the finale of the Cory Band's programme at the Brass in Concert Championships in November 2008, An American Tale is a musical tribute to the American Civil War. The work includes 'The Battle Hymn of the Republic', 'The Girl I Left Behind', 'Kingdom Come', 'Yankee Doodle Dandy', 'The Soldiers Return', 'Turkey in the Straw' and concludes with 'Amazing Grace' - a song synonymous with slavery and selected to conclude the work as a reflection of the war's primary goal. Each of the songs is scored in a psuedo-compositional style of an American composer including John Philip Sousa, Aaron Copland, Charles Ives and Leonard Bernstein.

    Brass Triumphant - Gareth Wood

    Brass Triumphant is a four-movement work and was composed for the Cory Band during their 125th anniversary year of 2009.The first movement is a celebratory fanfare featuring a strong melody as the thread which runs throughout the whole work. The second movement is powerful in nature and reflects struggle and endeavour. The third movement is a beautiful slow melodic poem subtitled Mist of the Forest. A melody carried by the euphonium honours the great Welsh folk melodies we all know and love. The lollipop finale is a rollercoaster ride, taking us to the very edge of band technique. The hymn tune O Iesu Mawr appears though heavily disguised and is a reminder of the composer's Welsh Heritage.The Cory Band under Dr. Robert Childs gave the World premiere of this work during the World Music Contest Gala Concert in Kerkrade, Netherlands July 2009. It later received its British premiere during September of the same year in Birmingham's Symphony Hall, again performed by the Cory Band under the direction of Robert Childs.

    Brassed Off Fantasy - Dan Price

    Commissioned in 2013 by the Grimethorpe Colliery Band and included in their Brass in Concert program the same year, Brassed Off Fantasy is a skilfully written selection of music which appears in the 1996 film Brassed Off, which of course, the Grimethorpe Colliery Band are synonymous.The selection includes some of the popular music of the film, Londonderry Air, Finale from William Tell and The Florentiner March but the composer has cleverly disguised their musical settings with the Florentiner appearing as a German Beer Keller Waltz and William Tell written as a slow melody. Brassed Off Fantasy is a selection, which will please the audience and is fun for the band to perform yet breathes new life into the old Brassed Off favourites.

    Colours in Rain - Daniel Hall

    Colours in Rain, was commissioned by Tredegar Town Band as the opening item in their concert the night before they defended their British Open title.For a fanfare, this composition starts unusually. Breaking away from the more conventional and traditional fanfare, Colours in Rain begins with the 'Rain Motif', a repetitive single bar that emulates the sound of rain. The lower band follow, introducing the fanfare theme and exploit a multitude of different colours and connotations, which are uncommon in fanfares.After a calm section the music intensifies and the main theme is once again introduced. The theme is passed around the ensemble until the climax of the piece, where all instruments recapitulate each individual motif before the finale section. This harmony expresses a striking colour, with rapid rhythmic motion, and is where the 'Colours in Rain' title originates.

    Pyrotechnic Variations on 1812 - Christian Overhead

    Pyrotechnic Variations on 1812 was composed for Brass Band Schoonhoven, and used as part of their programme for Brass in Concert in November 2016.'Pyrotechnic Variations' is a modern day twist on Tchaikovsky's famous '1812' Overture. A heraldic opening introduces some familiar themes, before leading into a frantic virtuosic passage (especially for euphonium!), where quotes can be heard all through the band. This subsides into the central 'slow' section (via the unusual route of a bass and drum kit feature). After a whisper quiet reintroduction of the main theme, we build to the 'canon' finale - ending in a glorious celebratory style!

The piece was inspired by a painting entitled 'Wanderer Above the Sea of Fog', and explores the theme in a variation of styles, including a slow and tranquil opening, which builds into a fast, loud and exciting finale.
