    Lions of Legends - Thierry Deleruyelle

    This work was commissioned by Eurofestival. Ever since antiquity, mankind has been fascinated by the lion: symbolising courage, strength and temperance. Many have made use of the lion to represent themselves in symbols and emblems. In five movements the composer describes both the history of the lion throughout centuries, as well as the characteristics. A challenging idea to turn into music! The final movement 'King of Kings' is extremely spectacular. A great choice for thematic concerts or as a main piece in your concert or contest.

    Bread and Games - William Vean

    'Panem et Circenses', Bread and Games were essential for keeping the citizens of ancient Rome in check. While the bread was meant for the poorest among the Romans, the Games were Popular Pastime Number One for everybody.There were different kinds of games, such as chariot races (especially popular with female spectators), or wild-beast fights, where lions, tigers, bulls or bears were set on one another or even on human beings. Most popular, however, were the Gladiator fights. In 'Bread and Games' William Vean depicts one of the many fights in the antique Colosseum. 1. Entrance of the Gladiators: By powerful bugle-calls the attention of the peoplewas asked for, after which the Gladiators entered the Arena at the sound of heroic marching-music.2.Swordfight: We can hear that the fights were not mere child's play in this part.On the contrary, they were a matter of life and death and were fought accordingly.3.Mercy of the Emperor: Sometimes a wounded gladiator could be fortunate, depending on the mercy of the audience. Waving one's handkerchief meant mercy, a turned-down thumb meant no pardon. The Emperor had the right to take the final decision, but he usually complied with the wish of the majority of the public. 4.Lap of Honour: Gladiators were mainly selected among slaves, convicted criminals, or prisoners of war. Consequently, winning was very important, as it would mean fame, honour and sometimes even wealth. A lap of honour, therefore, was the winner's due reward.

    Purple Prelude - Ian Raisbeck

    Purple Prelude was composed in 2017 by Ian Raisbeck for the Lions Youth Brass - the title, reflecting the colours of the band uniforms. The piece features 3 contrasting themes; the first a fanfare style opening full of pomp and ceremony, the second idea is a lively and rhythmical section giving the percussion players some latin inspired rhythms to fit the driving syncopated accompaniment rhythms. The final idea is a slower more reflective theme, giving the band a chance to show a warmer, richer sound. It is important to note that there are three very distinct styles (as described above). The contrasts between fanfare, lively rhythmic playing and the lyrical hymn style are important to capture. Dynamics and Tempo should also be carefully observed to produce full effect (some parts are written with different dynamics to others - this is intentional). During the central section percussion players may wish to alter the printed parts (in a Latin style).Also available to purchase in print from(external webpage, opens in new window)

    Artemis

    Artemis is the Greek goddess of hunting and forests. In western art she is often pictured with deer, lions or bears with a bow in her hand. The tempo of this march is stately and the themes are "concertante" in character making Artemis best suited as a concert march rather than a street march. Technically this march is not too difficult although at times some dexterous fingering is necessary. The trio melody is especially lyrical and offers various sections within the band the possibility to show off their skill in playing the expressive melody. This excellent new concert march is sure to become a classic and be performed time and time again.

    Ground Bass - Ian Raisbeck

    Ground Bass is based on the ostinato from J.S. Bach's 'Passacaglia and Fugue in C Minor (BWV 582)' originally written for Organ solo in the early 18th Century. It has been transcribed and reworked numerous times by a number of composers from different periods in time ever since its composition. This work utilises the ground bass in four different sections each exploring the colours that the brass band has to offer. Ground Bass was commissioned for Lions Youth Brass to premiere at the 2011 National Youth Brass Band Championships.Also available to purchase in print from(external webpage, opens in new window)

    Rise - Ian Raisbeck

    Rise was commissioned by Lions Youth Brass for the 2016 National Youth Brass Band Championships and is an original Brass Band work based upon the Christian Hymn Jesus Christ Is Risen Today, widely known as the Easter Hymn. Originally written in the fourteenth Century as a Bohemian Latin Hymn, it gained popularity in the 18th Century when John Baptist Walsh translated the text. This composition takes short motifs from the melody, initially setting them in fanfare figures. There is a central section which explores a lively rhythmic ostinato before the Hymn is set in full in the final part of the piece.Also available to purchase in print from(external webpage, opens in new window)
