    Symphony No 1 for Wind Band - Solitude Standing - Stig Nordhagen

    The two movements in this symphony have quite similar structure and length, and this is no coincidence.As a composer, I try to create two musical stories that comes from the same starting point and thought, but they sound and feel different.Music often describes something you cant say in words. This composer stands in the middle of the symphony, here personalized as trombone solo (or euphonium) and tries "Solitude Standing" to make a bridge between the two parts.- Stig Nordhagen -

    On Winter Hill - Dan Price

    Winter Hill is situated in the North West of England within the West Pennine Moors. It is a popular destination for walkers and on a clear day it offers views across Manchester, Liverpool, Blackpool, the Isle of Man, the Cumbrian Mountains and the Peak District. The hill is well named as there is an ever-present blusteriness even during the summer.On Winter Hill is an evocative concert item for solo euphonium and brass band which tells the story of a journey, in music, to the summit of the hill.The work opens with a quiet ostinato on solo cornets which is a musical interpretation of the swirling wind dancing around the peak of the summit. The wind is ever present on the hill and so is the ostinato building in volume and intensity as the journey progresses. The solo line uses modal writing and is fashioned as a ‘folksong without words' and gives work a feeling of melancholy and of ‘days gone by'. Perhaps the listener can imagine looking out from the side of the hill across the valley towards the now silent chimneys of industry.The summit of the hill is finally reached six bars before Figure G, which is the moment you walk into the wall of wind and sound that takes your breath away for a moment, but gives you an immense sense of achievement. The music here should be full and rich giving the soloist a moment to catch their breath. The work closes at the start of the descent from that moment you step off the peak of the hill and you are already back in a different world.

    Windjammer | Kevin Bell

    This energetic piece inspired by the beauty and majesty of the sea and the great tall ships is an ideal second half opener for any concert.Windjammer begins with a pounding shuffle pattern on toms tom's in 12/8 time, this is taken up by accented lower brass played over by a forceful fanfare like melody.Feel the thrill and power of a majestic sailing ship as sails are hoisted and trimmed to 'jam' the exhilarating power of the wind.Various cross themes develop as the pace and feel changes, slowing into a melodic straight 4/4 time as the ship gently yields to the wind and glides gracefully through the water. Themes are passed through the band and the music swells into full band sections.This slower section then returns to the original 12/8 driving opening riff of the piece uncovering various short themes before building to a triple forte punchy ending.InstrumentationSoprano, Solo, Repiano, 2nd and 3rd CornetsFlugelhornSolo, 1st and 2nd Tenor Horns1st and 2nd Baritone1st, 2nd and Bass TromboneEuphoniumEb and Bb BassesPercussion parts (4):1: Timpani2: Drum kit3: Xylophone / Glockenspiel4: (Optional) Bass Drum / Tambourine / Tam Tam / Cymbal / Mark TreeISMN: 979-0-708127-05-5
