    Slavonic Dance No.8 - Antonin Dvorak - Phillip Littlemore

    Antonin Dvorak composed his first set of eight Slavonic Dances in 1878. Originally written for piano duet, the dances were inspired by Johannes Brahms’ Hungarian Dances , and were orchestrated soon after composition at his publisher’s request. The music is lively and overtly nationalistic, although the tunes themselves are all original and are not taken from any Slavic folk dances. It was indeed this first set of Slavonic Dances that finally launched Dvorak as a composer beyond his native Bohemia. Such were the popularity of the original dances, Dvorak wrote a second set of eight in 1886. Slavonic Dance No.8 is high-spirited and in the style of a furiant, the boldest of Czech folk dances. Although written in a 3/4 metre throughout, Dvorak creates cross-rhythms that shift this metre in to 2/4, which is an important characteristic of the furiant. Item Code: TPBB-036 Duration: 4'10"

    The Sorcerer's Apprentice - Phillip Littlemore

    French composer Paul Dukas wrote his symphonic poem, The Sorcerer's Apprentice , between 1896 and 1897. Subtitled ‘Scherzo after a ballad by Goethe’, the piece was inspired by Goethe's 1797 poem of the same name. By far the most performed and recorded of Dukas' works, perhaps it’s most notable appearance was in the Walt Disney animated film Fantasia? from 1940, which led to the piece becoming widely known to audiences outside the classical concert hall. The original orchestral work is some 10 minutes in length, however this brass band transcription has been abridged to create a more manageable 6-minute work, yet retains the urgency, magic and colour of the original.? Item Code: TPBB-030 Duration: 6'00"

    Postman Pat - Bryan Daly - Len Jenkins

    The original music for the phenomenally successful Postman Pat series was composed by Bryan Daly (who sadly died in January 2012) and included not only the well-known theme tune "Postman Pat & His Black and White Cat", but also the tuba solo "Walking in Greendale", both of which are now available, arranged for brass, from Wobbleco Music. The theme tune was originally sung by Ken Barrie and was released as a single in the UK where it reached number 44 in the charts in July 1982. The Postman Pat TV series and the later Postman Pat SDS TV series continue to delight and entertain children not least because of the instantly recognizable theme tune. What is less well known is that Bryan was also one of the most sought-after session-musician guitar players of the 1960's and 1970's, a first-call studio musician for the likes of Burt Bacharach, and his performances grace numerous classic hit recordings that have remained radio staples to this day. This "twin-pack" contains 2 arrangements: one of which follows faithfully the original theme and is generally A4 in size, and another which is a march/fete edition and is slightly easier to play. They are printed back-to-back and by folding the parts in half, the march/fete edition becomes lyre-ready.

    You're My World - Umberto Bindi, Gino Paoli, Carl Sigman - Len Jenkins

    "You're My World" is a ballad originally recorded in 1963 as "Il Mio Mondo" ("My World") by Umberto Bindi, who co-wrote the Italian-language version with Gino Paoli. Although the original Italian version was not a hit, even in Italy, the song came to the attention of UK record producer George Martin, who commissioned an English version to be recorded by his prot?g?e Cilla Black. The English lyrics were written by Carl Sigman. Cilla's recording at Abbey Road Studios was made with Johnny Pearson conducting his orchestra and The Breakaways providing background vocals. Her road manager and future husband Bobby Willis also sang on the track. "You're My World" reached No. 1 in Britain on the chart dated 30 May 1964 and remained there for a total of four weeks, one week more than Cilla's preceding single "Anyone Who Had A Heart" (Also available as a Brass arrangement from Wobbleco Music). Although Cilla returned to the UK Top Ten eight times, "You're My World" was her final No. 1 hit. Two quite different arrangements are available; one for Full Brass Band and one for Brass Quintet with optional Glockenspiel. Both attempt to retain the style of the original recording.

    Concerto Grosso - Score and Parts - Derek Bourgeois

    About this new digitized editionThis edition was digitized in 2012 by Espen Wallacher Haukas, former principal percussion in Manger Musikklag, with help from his fellow band members Tina Kvamme and Christian Breistein. Together with conductors Martin Philip Winter and Philip Harper, the handwritten material was proof-read and corrected to make a new version, performed at the Norwegian Brass Band Championship of 2014. We compared the original ten-piece material to the brass band version and altered some notes/articulation to match the original. There were also some bars of percussion that enhanced the lines of the music in the ten-piece version that has been added in the percussion parts (with Derek's permission). The only change that has been done is to write the Flugelhorn solo at number 39 in 4/4 instead of 2/4; sounding just the same but having a calmer and more relaxed visual expression, to make it easier for the performer to read.

    Equilibrium - Paul Lovatt-Cooper

    Equilibrium was composed for Bandmaster Ross Johnson and Camberwell Citadel Band of The Salvation Army. The title suggests a state or situation in which opposing forces or factors balance each other out and stability is attained.Equilibrium is based around the hymn tune St Margaret which can be found in its original form acting as the central balance point in the music. The work on the whole is developed from this hymn tune with fragments of the melodic line and developing material scattered around the central section. This gives an end product which is a musical balance of ideas gathered either side of the original material. Equilibrium was selected as the test-piece for the 2009 World Music Championship (WMC) (First Section) held in Kerkrade, Netherlands.
