    English Dances, Set 1, Op. 27: No. 1 - Sir Malcolm Arnold - Ray Farr

    English Dances, Set I, opus 27, is a light classic composition that was written for orchestra by the British composer Malcolm Arnold in 1950. The set contains four dances that continue without pause: the individual movements are indicated by the tempo markings. The work came about at the request of Bernard de Nevers, at the time the head of publisher Alfred Lengnick & Co., who asked Arnold to write a suite of dances as an English counterpart to Dvorak's Slavonic Dances and Bartok's Romanian Folk Dances. The premiere took place in the spring of 1951, played by the London Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by Sir Adrian Boult. Following the success of the first set, De Nevers asked the composer to write a second one, which Arnold completed the next year (Op. 33). The Andantino from the first set has been skilfully arranged and orchestrated for brass band by Ray Farr.

    Ave Maria - Johann Sebastian Bach, Charles Gounod - Ray Farr

    There have been several settings of this Roman Catholic prayer to music, with the Bach/Gounod version being the most famous. It consists of the first prelude of Bach's The Well-Tempered Clavier plus a melody that Gounod wrote over this. Gounod himself called the piece 'Meditation', and it was only later that the words of Ave Maria were fitted. This reflective arrangement for Cornet and Brass Band is by one of our most gifted arrangers, Ray Farr.

    Tenor Toccata - Rodney Newton

    Composed for, and dedicated to, Owen Farr, this single movement work for tenor horn is divided into clearly defined sections. The introduction consists of a fanfare figure which is taken up by the soloist and turned into a cheerful melody. This is developed and varied during the progress of the first section, culminating in a climax. The pace later slackens and a new theme emerges, which grows out of the opening fanfare figure. This is then taken up by the accompaniment and shared with the soloist. A return to the faster music brings a new set of variants on the original theme, which builds to a broad statement of the middle section theme. A recapitulation of the primary material is rounded off by an energetic coda, also based on earlier material.Tenor Toccata is also available with piano accompaniment as part of Prima Vista Musikk's Owen Farr Solo Series.

    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.
