    SENZA MAMMA (from Suor Angelica) (Soprano Cornet Solo with Brass Band) - Puccini, Giacomo - Littlemore, Phillip

    The aria Senza Mamma (Without your Mother), sung in the opera by Sister Angelica, is one of the most poignant moments in any of Puccini's works, and has remained a repertoire favourite. Suor Angelicais the second instalment in Puccini's triptych of one-act operas commonly known as Il trittico. The opera chronicles the fall, redemption, and final transfiguration of its central character, Sister Angelica, who has taken the veil in repentance for bearing a child out of wedlock. The libretto, by Giovacchino Forzano, was immediately appealing to the composer, whose sister Igenia was Mother Superior of the convent at Vicepelago. Though it contains some of Puccini's most adventurous writing (the musical language at times even flirts with polytonality) the work has not enjoyed popularity comparable to that of its companions,Il TabarroandGianni Schicchi, each of which has enjoyed an independent life in the repertory.

    Triptych (on a theme by Handel) - Peter Meechan

    Triptych (on a Theme by Handel) was commissioned by horn soloist Lesley Howie for a premiere performance at the Bridgewater Hall, Manchester. In three broad sections, the work is a modern take on the traditional 'theme and variations' concept, used in many brass band solos.The three sections of the piece are:fanfare and theme - a fanfare sounded by the soloist at the opening is taken on by the band, leading to a setting of Handel's Sarabande (from his 6th Suite for keyboard) and a recapitulation of the fanfareslow song - a simple melody, becoming more elaborate throughout the sectionfinale – a quasi-tango featuring some fiendish technique from the soloistTriptych (on a Theme by Handel) is dedicated to Lesley Howie.

    Cityscapes - Jan de Haan

    For Cityscapes, the composer used the metropolis of New York, the largest city of the United States, as a source of inspiration. The first movement mirrors the skyline of the 'Big Apple'. In movement two, Central Park is introduced and in the closing movement of this triptych, the ever-sparkling Manhattan, known for its many skyscrapers, and its financial centre Wall Street, is the focal point. Not only are the busy city traffic and the chaotic hustle and bustle expressed in the music, but also the impressive buildings, including the famous Empire State Building. Let the magic of New York shine with this dramatic new item for brass band.
