    The Seven Divine Properties - Rob Goorhuis

    Rob Goorhuis wrote this challenging work for solo euphonium with its marvellous title The Seven Divine Properties at the request of Danny Oosterman and after an idea of Anteun Hoesen. In fact, this piece came about because the Andels Fanfare Corps was going to record a CD in early 2012 exclusively with pieces by Rob Goorhuis. Anteun Hoesen plays the solo part in this piece on the CD.The concept of divine properties features heavily in various ancient religions: these are properties to which man can aspire—through striving towards divine properties one can evolve spiritually and become a better person. Different divine properties feature in various religions. In the Christian church, the terms Faith, Hope and Love play an important role.This composition is primarily written from an Old Testament point of view. The chosen qualities are as follows: Simplicity, Strength, Truth, Perseverance and Passion. After a short introduction of the thematic material, the various properties are depicted in musical miniatures.

    Christmas Concerto

    This arrangement of Corelli’s famous “Christmas Concerto” features soprano cornet, two solo cornets and solo euphonium. Arcangelo Corelli was one of the first masters of the baroque period, a skilled violinist much admired by fellow composers like Bach and Handel. He was born in Fusignano, near Ferrara in Northern Italy in 1653. He studied in nearby Bologna where he became an extremely competent violinist. By the 1670s he was working in Rome and building a reputation as a composer at the important and powerful Papal court. By the late 1600s he was widely famous all over Europe, regularly invited to important courts and palaces. Although he had a huge influence on the virtuoso writing of later composers, his writing for string instruments was designed to be playable by average, often amateur players.His set of Concerti Grossi known as Opus 6 was not published in his lifetime. We think they were written around 1690, and they were first published in Amsterdam in 1714, a year after Corelli's death. A 'Concerto Grosso' is a concerto for a group of soloists (the "concertino" group) accompanied by an ensemble (the "ripieno" group) and was an important form in the Baroque era. Handel's very successful examples were modelled on Corelli's example. Number 8 from the Opus 6 set was commissioned by the Venetian Cardinal Pietro Ottoboni and bears the inscriptionFatto per la notte di Natale('made for the night of Christmas'). It was used as part of the soundtrack for the 2003 film 'Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World".You can view a sample score of this arrangement here.

    Paul McGhee: Kjeden

    Subtitled dialogue for Euphonium and Brass Band, Kjeden aims to explore the relationship between soloist and ensemble. The ensemble, rather than merely accompanying; interacts with the soloist and creates soundscapes which become the backdrop for the soloists extended passages. Many instruments from the ensemble become lead lines in the material and there is a constant dialogue between the instruments as each fights for importance. Using the idea of a chain the five sections of the piece are interlinked and the point where one ends and another begins is often blurred and distorted. Each section emerges from the material which precedes it and constantly gives reminders of what has gone before as well as introducing new material.Dance like passages and fast rhythmical sections flow in and out and morph into musical ideas of highly differing character with contrast being the primal element which propels the music and creates momentum. Although the music draws to a definite conclusion, the re-introduction at the end of the piece of motifs and moods that occur at the beginning of the work mean that the music comes full circle, finishing where it began. Indeed, it is the intention that the music in fact has no ending and is to be played on a loop continuously; further blurring the boundaries and becoming an unbroken chain of material.A recording of Kjeden can be heard below (from Paul’s Soundcloud page)and you can see a preview of the solo part here.Duration: c.21 minutes

    Jingle Bells - James Lord Pierpont

    Tranquil Seas - Dan Price

    Tranquil Seas - Suite for Brass Band and Percussion, takes its inspiration from the evocative titles given to the various areas of the Moon's surface.Maria (or Mare) are the large plains on the moon's surface which were created by ancient volcanic eruptions. They are less reflective than the higher ground on the surface and therefore have a darker, blue-ish appearance when viewed from earth with the naked eye. Early astronomers mistook this change in colour as actual water and therefore named them seas.I Sea of Clouds - Mare NubiumThe first movement takes the form of a fanfare and theme and opens full gusto at double fortissimo with a rich descending bass line, fast paced ostinati in solo cornets accompanying a slow paced fanfare from back row cornets, horns and trombones.II Sea of Tranquility - Mare TranquillitatisThis is a slow, peaceful movement in binary form. The first section offers a sense of space and weightlessness through gently ebbing accompaniment and features solos for flugelhorn and euphonium. Percussion and muted trombones introduce a rhythmic pulse to the second section which underpins the remainder of the ensemble scored in block harmony. This interplay between polyphonic and homophonic writing gives the effect of the slowly revolving moon.III Sea of Serenity - Mare SerenitatisThe movement starts with the back drop of gently overlapping ostinati in tuned percussion and a sustained pedal point in horns. Low brass introduce the main theme to which other members of the ensemble join as the movement develops. A second theme is introduced which is more rhythmic in nature and contains a combination of homophonic writing set against a strong, dance-like ostinato (written compound time against single time) which gives the movement a sense of movement. This part of the music expresses the relationship of the moon and the earth, constantly revolving in their eternal dance against the back drop of space. Despite the amount of rhythmic content in this movement the pulse remains slow and there is a lack of urgency in the music so that the calmness and euphoria have an almost hypnotic effect.IV Sea of Dreams - Mare DesideriiThe finale of Tranquil Seas is written in the form of a toccata, opening with a thinly scored pianissimo. The characteristic arpeggio line of the toccata is initially scored on solo cornet and as the movement develops this motif is passed to almost all the family groups in the ensemble. The rich sweeping melody line also associated with this form is featured characteristically on the low brass. This high-octaine final movement brings the complete suite to a dramatic conclusion.This is challenging and demanding music that is also rewarding for both performer and listener. All of the movements work well as individual items if the complete suite is to long for your program.

    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!
