    Canzonetta

    Canzonetta is a tenor horn solo with optional brass band or piano accompaniment.Canzonetta was one of my earliest compositions, written in my early days as an undergraduate. Along with a companion piece called Caprice it was written for an old friend, Louise Hunt (now Louise Skillander), to whom it is dedicated. We had both been in the Northop Youth Band together, and both pieces were the result of a conversation about the lack of 'good tenor horn solos' for lower section and youth players at the time.With more mature consideration the Caprice has been consigned to the dustbin of history, but the simplicity of Canzonetta has allowed it to stand the test of time with a few minor scoring revisions.To view a PDF file of the full score click here, and to view the solo part click here.

    Csardas - Vittorio Monti - Steve York

    Vittorio Monti (1868-1922) was born in Naples and studied at the Conservatorio di San Pietro a Majella with Pinto (violin) and Serrao (composition). Monti went to Paris in 1886 where he perfected his violin playing studying with Sivori, and was for many years first violin in the Lamoureux Orchestra. His works include ballets and operettas, as well as instrumental, vocal and violin pieces. He is best remembered as the composer of the celebrated Cs?rd?s for violin and orchestra. Cs?rd?s has been arranged for every imaginable instrument. This version - for tenor horn soloist and brass band - has been arranged by Steve York.

    Sunday in the Park - Philip Sparke

    Sunday in the Park was written for tenor horn virtuoso Sheona White, and commissioned by her partner, Matt Wade, as a Christmas present. Composer Philip Sparke had known and admired Sheona's playing for many years, having produced her first solo CD and written pieces for her previously. Both composer and performer are huge fans of the late Karen Carpenter, Sheona in part modelling her sound on the singer's sultry voice; so it was decided that this new solo would be a piece which, whilst not being a 'Carpenters' pastiche, paid tribute to their relaxed style and rich harmonic language. Sunday in the Park opens with an accompanied cadenza for the soloist, which leads to a gentle rhythmic melody with a laid-back feel. This is taken up by the band but the soloist sparks a change of mood by introducing a faster light rock interlude. This reaches a climax, at which point the music unwinds until the original mood returns. A variation on the original melody leads to a short cadenza from the soloist, which brings the work to a peaceful close.
