    The Garland Waltz (Tchaikovsky arr. Dan Price) - Dan Price

    Brass Band Concert Series - Grade 4 'The Garland Waltz' comes from 'The Sleeping Beauty', the second of three ballets by Pyotr Tchaikovsky. Sleeping Beauty's theme is simplistic and focuses on the conflicting forces of good and evil through the characters the Lilac Fairy (good) and Carabosse (evil). The ballet's premiere in 1890 received more favorable accolades than 'Swan Lake' but Tchaikovsky never witnessed the works true success outside of Russia as he died in 1893. By 1903, 'The Sleeping Beauty' was the second most popular ballet in the repertoire of the Imperial Ballet, having been performed 200 times in only 10 years. The waltz and other music from the ballet has been used extensively on film and television, most notably on Disneys animated version of 'Sleeping Beauty' and the recently released 'Maleficent'.

This speech can be narrated.

    Trip the Light Fantastic - Dan Price

    Horn virtuoso Owen Farr commissioned a new concert item for tenor horn from composer Dan Price in 2009, Trip the Light Fantastic was the resulting work.The piece is music absolute, with no particular aim to tell a story or impose and image or idea on the listener. For anyone who knows Owen, they will know that he has an infectious and engaging presence and a lively sense of humour. His technical and musical ability is universally renowned, as is his enthusiasm and passion for music. The composer has attempted to create a musical caricature of some of these personal qualities and has borrowed the dancing term ‘to trip the light fantastic', "to dance nimbly or lightly, or to move in a pattern to musical accompaniment" as a fitting title to encompass the virtuosic yet jovial nature of the piece.
