    Fragile Oasis - Peter Meechan

    Fragile Oasis is the name of a collective who describe themselves as a??a?a grass-roots participatory initiative that connects the shared perspective of astronauts from different countries and cultures with people on Earth, encouraging all to work together so that our planet is not only visibly beautiful, but beautiful for alla?.Many involved in the project are astronauts on the International Space Station (I.S.S.), who post, on their website (http://www.fragileoasis.org) many different details of their experiments, photos from space, and some incredible video footage of our Earth.One such time lapse video (a video made up many still images) was posted on their website by astronaut Ron Garan (http://www.fragileoasis.org/blog/2011/11/coming-back-down-to-our-fragile-oasis-2/) in 2011. It is made up of images taken from the I.S.S. of what Garan described as a??a?a couple of laps around our Fragile Oasis before coming back down [to Earth]a? and features all kinds of amazing views from space.Each of the five sections of this work relate to an aspect of the video - either something literal or something more metaphorical. The opening section, i: The lights from Above, is a musical description of the view of the Aurora Australis from above the lights. The second section, ii: The Storm from Above (part i), is also a musical portrayal of portions of the video clip - in this case the many lightning storms we see from above. The storms that are so powerful on Earth appear as small bolts of electricity dancing through the clouds.The third section, iii: Freya, has its roots in personal family tragedy. The name Freya derives from a Norse goddess who was associated with both beauty and love, and in this central section I wanted to write music that not only acknowledged how fragile life itself is, but that every day of it counts and should be celebrated.iv: The Storm from Above (part ii) is a again a reference to the lightning storms, but also to the huge hurricanes we see in the video. It leads us to the final section, v: The Oasis from Above - a description of the size and grandeur of Earth, our Fragile Oasis.Fragile Oasis was commissioned by Leyland Brass Band and Michael Bach, and partly funded by The John Golland Trust, for their appearance at the 2013 European Brass Band Championships in Oslo, Norway. It is dedicated to Natalie Youson, in friendship

    Con Brio - Mike Lyons

    A brand new piece, jolly and lively all the way thought. Composed in 7/8 time most of the way though, giving the players something to think about, and the audience something to enjoy. There is chance for the players to re-gain their composure during a lovely little flugel solo (thankfully, in the more common time!). The band then join in and the fun returns, getting faster and faster before another break into the Lento, where the trombones and solo horn feature. However the rousing ending isn't far away!!! A stunning work, good fun, and enjoyable by all.

A light swing piece in style, this entertaining work offers drummers the chance to show off their skills and more importantly, is accessible to players of many levels.

    13.7 Billion Years Earlier - James McFadyen

    Brass band sheet music by James McFadyen. Listen to the glorious sound of the Central Ohio Brass Band perform this grand and magical fanfare. Described as a fanfare tone poem, 13.7 Billion Years Earlier tells the story of the beginning of our universe, the big bang. Based around the note of concert Db, this is poetic brass band music with flowing melodic lines and deep evocative harmonies, gradually building to glorious and magical ending. Since the conception of this music, the most recent accurate measurement of the universe is now 13.8 billion years old.What is the Big Bang?The Big Bang is the leading theory of how our universe came to be. All of space, time and matter in our universe was created at that moment. Everything you see around you comes from that moment 13.8 billion years ago. The term "big bang" was coined by Fred Hoyle (1915-2001), a British astronomer who supported the opposing theory of the time - Steady State Theory.At the heart of the Big Bang theory is Inflation, as developed by Alun Guth (b.1947).Over the years, the evidence to support the Big Bang theory mounted up, and has been so consistent with the model that to argue against the big bang would require a substantial amount of opposing evidence not yet observed.Evidence to support the Big Bang theory includes (amongst others) pigeon droppings at the big ear telescope in Ohio (USA), WMAP image of the universe and the discovery of redshift demonstrating the expanding universe.More Space Brass Band Sheet Music2019 marks 50 years of the first moon landing. If you're looking for original music for brass band with a space theme, you're at the right place. If you like 13.7 Billion Years Earlier and looking for something along the same lines, The Pale Blue Dot by the same composer is the perfect choice. With it's 5/4 time signature and lyrical melody over a pulsing ostinato building to a heart-pumping ending, it's the perfect set of tones for your concert.For those after a more energetic piece, Magnus Hylander's Sunrise is sure to fit the bill. The calm and peaceful start is not unlike something from that of Philip Sparke, and when the piece gets going, it's a great concert piece that moves along at a fair pace.The "Wow!" Signal by James McFadyen is a 3-part concert work based on the 1977 signal found in the constellation of Sagittarius. In fast-slow-fast form, this original extended work is a great way to showcase your bands musical prowess whilst giving the audience a new sonic experience.

    Concerto for Tenor Horn - Lucy Pankhurst

    I wrote this tenor horn concerto for Owen Farr in 2002, whilst we were both studying at the RNCM in Manchester. I had never heard a brass player like Owen before and was stunned by his technical brilliance as well as his musicality. Also, being at college myself, and exploring the horn repertoire in more detail, I wanted to write something which showed the versatility of the instrument and used more of the extreme range. This was my first attempt at a large-scale work.I actually gave the premiere of the 2nd movement in my final degree recital, but Owen gave the first official premiere of the full work at Birmingham Conservatoire in 2005.
