    Cowboy Suite - Alan Laken

    In the tripartite 'Cowboy Suite' Alan Laken takes us to the Wild West, the domain of cowboys, indians, trappers and other fortune hunters. Around 1890 the west coast of America was reached, which in effect meant the end of the Wild West. Its stories, however, survived and have been a source of inspiration for many books, films, and, of course, music. Some characters, such as Jesse James, Billy the Kid, and Buffalo Bill are forever linked to these tales. In the 'Cowboy Suite' we first hear the 'Hoedown'. At the end of an exhausting workday the labourers used to lay down their tools, among others the 'hoes' and spontaneously began to play music on the instruments which they then possessed (guitars, fiddles, and banjos) and to dance. After being jolted on the 'Wagon Trail' we reach the third part, the 'Cowboy Roundup'. In this last part it becomes clear that as a cattle driver it is imperative to stay firmly seated in the saddle. As the cattle are rounded up, i.e. driven together, spectacular things happen.

    Seize the Day - Peter Graham

    Seize the Daywas written for the London-based International Staff Band of The Salvation Army, conductor Dr Stephen Cobb, the title serving as the theme for the band's USA West Tour 2010. As befits music being performed during a trip to the United States the work is based upon three traditional American spirituals. The first, The Gospel Train, is introduced following a carillon-like intrada in trombones and bells with supporting cornet flourishes. Ostinati drive the musical locomotive along until an abrupt halt ushers in another kind of vehicle, the celestial Sweet Chariot, featuring euphonium and trombone soloists. The finale, Amen, celebrates the arrival at our destination with some tongue-in-cheek West Coast (and Swinging London!) references before a reprise of Swing Low, Sweet Chariot brings the music to a majestic and joyful conclusion.

    Tales and Myths of Gothia - Jerker Johansson

    Jerker Johansson has lived in Gothenburg, on the Swedish West Coast, since 1984, and is deeply interested in the history of the country. Gothia is the most southern part of Sweden, and Gothenburg, which was founded in 1621, is since many years an important centre for trade and shipping. Old paintings of the harbour with its gigantic sailing ships gave impulse to the heroic character of the piece.The opening fanfare is followed by a lively allegro, which eventually leads to a calm section, containing reminiscences of the fanfare. The cornets introduce a cantabile theme, and a dance reminding of the Renaissance precede a recapitulation of the allegro theme. Tales and Myths of Gothia was originally composed for concert band in 2017. The brass band version was premiered on 26 April 2019 during Oslo Brass festival by Uffes Blas Brassband, conducted by Andreas Kratz.

Here is the first stanza:We worked in the heat and the thick black dust,Sticks to your skin like a burnt pie crust.We rue each day the miner must,Go down in the Brunner mine.Down In The Brunner Mine is dedicated to Helen Aldred, who conducted the first performance.

    Waterfront Sketches - Alan Fernie

    Waterfront Sketches was commissioned by the National Children's Band of Great Britain and premiered by them at Repton School in July 2016.

BELFAST - "She was fine when she left here.."A dark, brooding opening, full of industrial noise and clamour, and reflecting the epic construction of the SS Titanic. Little did they know...II. GLASGOW - The Vital Spark at BroomielawAn affectionate portrait of Neil Munro's "Para Handy Tales", and the adventures of the madcap crew of the puffer "The Vital Spark" as it sailed up and down the Firth of Clyde from its berth in the heart of Old Glasgow. Full of quirky west coast humour, and much loved by Scots the world over.III. CARDIFF - A Romance in Black and GoldAn imaginary soundtrack to a doomed love story in the melting pot of Tiger Bay.IV. PORTSMOUTH - Of Tallships and Towers, and Tales from AshoreA rumbustious finale, portraying the energy and activity of this still busy waterfront, with frequent references to our glorious nautical heritage.

    Radio City (Trombone Solo with Brass Band) - Graham, Peter

    As youngsters growing up on the west coast of Scotland, my brother and I fell heir to an old valved radiogram which provided us with our first experiences of radio broadcasts. On the short wave signal, and through the static, we could pick up a whole range of programmes from across the Atlantic. I particularly recall the baseball games, the American accents of the announcers providing a window to a evocative world far removed from our small Ayrshire town. These memories form the basis of Radio City.The work is set in three movements, each introduced by a pastiche radio announcer narrative written by Philip Coutts. The first, City Noir, is a nod towards Raymond Chandler's eponymous private eye Philip Marlow and the dark cityscape of 1940s California.Movement two, Cafe Rouge, takes its title from the main restaurant in New York's famous Hotel Pennsylvania. Two of the most famous band leaders of the 1940s, trombonists Glenn Miller and Tommy Dorsey, broadcast live from the cafe on numerous occasions and the movement echoes with a collage of imagined sounds from the period.The finale, Two-Minute Mile, derives from an event dubbed in the USA as "the most exciting two minutes in sport", namely the Kentucky Derby. The virtuoso soloist figurations have their roots in Kentucky bluegrass fiddle music, with the galloping bluegrass clog-dancing rhythms providing the backdrop.- Peter Graham, Cheshire, January 2013

    Eriskay Love Lilt (with brass band) - Trad

    Eriskay Love Lilt is a traditional Gaelic melody from the Western Isles of Scotland, sensitively arranged here by Andrew Duncan as a cornet solo with brass band accompaniment.This arrangement was written in 2001 for Phillip McCann and was first played by him with the Hepworth Band at the 2002 Leek Music Festival in Derbyshire, England. It has also since been recorded by Eleanor Ferguson with the Whitburn Band on Reflections of Freedom.Andrew Duncan comments: The Isle of Eriskay (Eirisgeigh) lies forty miles off the North West coast of Scotland in the North Atlantic. It is a small island, only two kilometres square and lies between the larger islands of South Uist and Barra. Eriskay is one of the islands which form the archipelago known as the Western Isles or Na h-Eileanan an Air. The Eriskay Love Lilt is a hauntingly beautiful tune which is typical of the greater number of traditional Gaelic melodies in that it is largely based on the Aeolian mode, the black notes on the piano.Also available with piano accompanimentor as a solo with brass ensemble (10-piece).
