    Rhapsody on Overturian Themes - Christian Overhead

    ?'Rhapsody of Overturian Themes?' is an innovative concert programme/first half finale which builds its foundations from a broad collection of favoured classics, with references including:La Carnaval Romain – Hector BerliozLe Roi d’Ys – Edouard LaloThe Marriage of Figaro – Wolfgang Amadeus MozartWilliam Tell – Gioachino RossiniLight Cavalry & Tantalusqualen – Franz von Suppe1812 – Pyotr Ilyich TchaikovskyLa Forza del Destino (The Force of Destiny) – Giuseppe VerdiThe work uses inventive means to link the references, enabling it to present itself as an individual work with just momentary hints of the fragments passing almost before the ear realises. It has an upbeat side to its personality, bringing forth a modern sound to complement the classical interludes. The piece was originally written to make an impact in an entertainment competition programme, working extremely well as an exciting ?'finisher?'.Through combining new sounds with classically familiar melodies, ?'Rhapsody on Overturian Themes?' is a feature piece which can find its worthy place in the concert programme of a championship section (or upper level 1st section) band.

    Seaside Rendezvous - Freddie Mercury - Iain McKnight

    There was no greater showman in the world of rock than Freddie Mercury and, for many, no greater group than Queen. The release in 2018 of the film Bohemian Rhapsody brought the sounds of Queen to a new generation as well as providing a welcome dose of musical reminiscence for fans across the world. As well as an astonishingly gifted performer, Freddie Mercury was an equally adept composer, drawing upon his early musical training as a classical pianist as well as his eclectic musical tastes to create songs of immense character and imagination.With its echoes of music hall, vaudeville and no small amount of saucy postcard humour, Seaside Rendezvous is from the band's fourth studio album, A Night at the Opera, released in 1975. The song is so complex and makes such extensive use of multi-tracking and specially recorded effects - the tap dance segment, for example, was created by Freddie Mercury and Roger Taylor ‘performing' on the mixing desk with thimbles on their fingers - that Queen never performed it live.Colourfully scored and featuring numerous momentary solos around the band - including a feature for the cornet section on kazoos - this arrangement was made for Foden's Band and featured as part of their programme for the 2018 Brass in Concert Championships at Sage Gateshead. The band subsequently recorded it on their 2019 CD, Trials and Triumphs.
