    Taps in Tempo - Jan Nerneska - Rodney Newton

    Despite his European name, Jan Berenska was a Midlander and something of a youthful prodigy, playing piano, violin and cello and giving his first broadcast at the age of 15 from Station 5IT (based in Witton, near Birmingham) in the days of crystal sets. He made his professional debut as a multi-instrumentalist in 1919, playing in the pit at London's Drury Lane Theatre for a pantomime. In the 1920s, he became sub-leader of the fledgling City of Birmingham Orchestra (CBO) before forming his own Berenska Pianoforte Quintette in 1930, which broadcast regularly from the BBC'S Birmingham studios. In 1935, he formed a dance band which toured all over the country.His xylophone solo, Taps in Tempo, is dedicated to Leslie Lewis, principal percussionist of the CBO. Born in South Wales, Lewis was a prot?g? of the orchestra's legendary timpanist, Ernest Parsons, and was subsequently engaged by the BBC as percussionist with its Theatre Orchestra in London, only to die tragically of a heart attack at Euston Station on the day he was to take up his new appointment.Taps in Tempo is very typical of the type of xylophone solo heard on innumerable bandstands and in caf?s and variety theatres throughout the 1930s and 1940s. It features a bright, catchy melody, dazzling arpeggios and scales and four-mallet chords to show off the xylophonist's technique. This arrangement was specially created for the virtuoso percussionist, Simone Rebello.

    Dick Turpins Ride To York - Rodney Newton - -

    Commissioned in 1998 by trombone superstar Brett Baker, Dick Turpin's Ride to York, was originally scored for trombone and brass band.Inspiration for the work is taken from Alfred Noyes poem The Ballad of Dick Turpin, which describes a fictional attempt by notorious highwayman, Dick Turpin, to ride from London to York to escape justice and the inevitable hangman's noose.The work is rich and dark in colour but paints a clear musical representation of its subject. Galloping horses, post horns and racing stage coaches all make an appearance in this wonderful solo and the listener has their work cut out trying to keep up with the highwayman as he is chased through the storm ridden night.
