    Cuban Overture

    Originally entitled 'Rumba', Gershwin's? Cuban Overture was a was written some time following a two-week holiday which he took in Havana in February 1932. The overture is dominated by Caribbean rhythms and Cuban native percussion, with a wide spectrum of instrumental colour and technique. It is a rich and exciting work with complexity and sophistication, illustrating the influence of Cuban music and dance. Although it received it’s premi?re under the title 'Rumba', it was renamed Cuban Overture three months later at a benefit concert conducted by Gershwin at the Metropolitan Opera to avoid giving audience the idea that it was simply a novelty item. The new title provided, as the composer stated, “a more just idea of the character and intent of the music”. Item Code: TPBB-004 Duration: c.6'20"

    A Christmas Overture - Nigel Hess - Phillip Littlemore

    Nigel Hess' vivacious and colourful A Christmas Overture , originally commissioned as an orchestral work by John Rutter for his 2007 Christmas Festival, proved an instant success with audience and orchestra alike. Traditional carols, skilfully juxtaposed and interwoven, provide the thematic material. They are, in order of appearance: Ding Dong! Merrily On High ; Deck The Halls ; Il Est N? Le Divin Enfant ; Infant Holy, Infant Lowly ; Personent Hodie ; We Wish You A Merry Christmas and Angels From The Realms Of Glory , which bring the overture to a majestic close. Fragments of other carols appear along the way to enrich the texture of what is surely one of the most attractive pieces written for the festive season. Item Code: 0-571-57132-8 Duration: c. 7'00"
