    A Tear in the Fabric of Time - Gareth Wood

    A Tear in the Fabric of Time is essentially a symphony for brass band and was inspired by the book The Elegant Universe by Brian Greene, which attempts to simplify complex ideas in modern physics for the layperson. This piece was dedicated to and written for the Buy As You View Band but was first performed by the National Youth Brass Band of Great Britain, conducted by Robert Childs in Summer 2006. The work is featured by the Cory Band on their recording The Promised Land (DOYCD218).A brassy, fanfare like introduction provides much of the material for the rest of the work.This leads into a dramatic 'Allegro' driving forward with brittle motives and stabbing chords. A euphonium melody accompanied by divided basses attempts to mellow the mood, but is unsuccessful as the music drives ruthlessly on! The centre of the work is a choral like Adagio; maybe the blackness of space or the darkness of human nature. A short episode leads into a 'Presto' which is a reworking of the first 'Allegro' relentlessly careering to a violent end! [Gareth Wood, 2006]

    Lake of Tenderness - Ben Hollings

    Ben Hollings provides a delicate, atmospheric concert work utilising extended harmony reminiscent of modern choral composers such as Eric Whitacre. The work is technically modest, consisting of sustained chords interspersed with moving crotchet lines and lyrical solo contributions, and is accessible to bands of all levels.The work takes its title from ‘Lacus Lenitatis’ - one of the Latin named basaltic plains on the earth’s moon, thought by early astronomers to be lakes. Atmospheric in nature, the music seeks to evoke imagery of the solitary moon in the still of space. As we all know, simple music is often the most effective, and this is certainly the case here. Hollings’ chordal and lyrical writing creates a truly beautiful work that would be welcome in any concert programme.Lake of Tenderness was commissioned by Dr. Robert Childs and premiered by Grimethorpe Colliery Band at the 2015 Brass in Concert Festival, at The Sage, Gateshead.
