A chance for the lower instruments to take the lead, this piece from the beginning of the second movement of Beethoven's 7th Symphony has been described as one of the most beautiful pieces of music ever written.It is unusual as a Brass Band piece in that it builds 'from the bottom'. With a repeating ostinato it is slow and stately, with carefully controlled pace and intensity. An unusual section of Beethoven's 7th Symphony and a welcome change of pace.
Tchaikovsky composed his fifth symphony in the summer of 1888. He suggested that the opening-and recurrent-theme of the symphony represented "a complete resignation before Fate." The finale begins with a slow introduction of the 'fate' theme which segues into an Allegro Vivace of drive and energy, during which a majestic version of the fate theme periodically emerges. Finally, after a notorious "false" ending, the music courses ahead to a dramatic climax. Duration: 7:30Estimated delivery 12-14 days
Astonishing and ferocious perpetual motion, is the best way of describing this Finale. Technically? An Everest. Musically? Exhilarating. See the News section for a much fuller note about the piece and its history. Duration is around 5 to 7 minutes.Estimated delivery 10-14 days
