The Whale Grand contest march. This setting is teeming with the joy and optimism of life and will work perfectly as a concert opener. Prelude and Fanfare Prelude and Fanfare takes its inspiration from a piece of NASA video footage, where a camera is attached to a piece of debris and jettisoned into space from the space shuttle. Initially, the camera captures images of the shuttle flying off into the distance and out of sight and images of Earth from outer space, as the debris floats around.
The Earth's magnetic field takes hold of the debris and it re-enters the atmosphere, gathering speed and plummeting towards the Earth all the while capturing video images of its journey. At figure A the trombones imitate the magnetic pull of the earth and bring the seemingly abstract musical sounds into a coherent direction. Figure C is a musical representation of the entry into the earth's atmosphere, and the brisk tempo and rhythmic quality of the main theme should convey images of accelerated speed and excitement which eventually climaxes to the inevitable final "thud" of both the musical and documented journey.
This musical study explores the use of minimalist techniques and ideas within the confines of the brass band idiom. The overall structure of the piece is based on the shape of a crescendo, starting at the softest level the ensemble is capable of, finishing at the greatest. Within this structure smaller crescendo sections determine the different segments of the overall work. New World Sketches New World Sketches is a descriptive journey through the landscapes and images of America in the early part of the 20th century.
Includes: Sidewalk - The work opens with a busy street scene of 's New York, and the hustle and bustle of the city can be heard through percussive scoring of car hooters, trams and pedestrians going about their business, featuring elements of George Gershwin's American In Paris and Rhapsody in Blue.
The Deep South - As the subtitle suggests, the second movement of New World Sketches evokes images of the 's Deep South beginning with a simple spiritual. Played first on unaccompanied solo euphonium the melody is then joined by bass trombone, depicting a slave "work song". An increase in tempo and a resounding tubular bell announces the arrival of a steam locomotive complete with "Love Chime" whistle. Rodeo - The final movement steers away from the jazz influences synonymous in America's musical history and turns towards the music of Aaron Copland for inspiration. The opening unison tune, played on piccolo, flutes, oboe, bassoon, tenor sax, trumpet and trombone accompanied by extensive poly-chords, creates a big-country sound while the fast pseudo-Irish Jig provides the energy and flair of a rodeo.
New World Sketches is conceived as a single work however each movement works independently if so desired. It is a lover's lament about his lost dead love, Lisa. It was used extensively within the soundtrack for Paul Haggis's film Crash, a tense race relations film set in Los Angeles. This beautiful melody has been superbly arranged for wind band and percussion by Dan Price. Percussion plays a key role in this arrangement and includes, unusually, a part for acoustic guitar or synthesizer. It is a popular destination for walkers and on a clear day it offers views across Manchester, Liverpool, Blackpool, the Isle of Man, the Cumbrian Mountains and the Peak District.
The hill is well named as there is an ever-present blusteriness even during the summer. On Winter Hill is an evocative concert item for solo euphonium and wind band which tells the story of a journey, in music, to the summit of the hill. The work opens with a quiet ostinato on clarinets which is a musical interpretation of the swirling wind dancing around the peak of the summit. The wind is ever present on the hill and so is the ostinato building in volume and intensity as the journey progresses. Perhaps the listener can imagine looking out from the side of the hill across the valley towards the now silent chimneys of industry.
The summit of the hill is finally reached six bars before Figure G, which is the moment you walk into the wall of wind and sound that takes your breath away for a moment, but gives you an immense sense of achievement. The music here should be full and rich giving the soloist a moment to catch their breath. The work closes at the start of the descent from that moment you step off the peak of the hill and you are already back in a different world. Inspiration for the work is taken from Alfred Noyes poem The Ballad of Dick Turpin, which describes a fictional attempt by notorious highwayman, Dick Turpin, to ride from London to York to escape justice and the inevitable hangman's noose.
The work is rich and dark in colour but paints a clear musical representation of its subject. Galloping horses, post horns and racing stage coaches all make an appearance in this wonderful solo and the listener has their work cut out trying to keep up with the highwayman as he is chased through the storm ridden night. Clouds The starting point for this point was some dramatic cloud formations the composer experienced while in Morrinsville, New Zealand. It was a brilliant sunny day, with occasional huge and interestingly shaped clouds floating past. They provided inspiration for the opening texture of Clouds, which is flowing and slowly unfolding in character.
Clouds can assume many different shapes and characters. There are stormy ideas with strong rhythms, jagged ideas built from small motifs, mysterious ideas that suggest darker clouds and bright climaxes that suggest the sun bursting through. The solo trombone is rather like a small aeroplane, weaving its way through the clouds and enjoying a turbulent journey. Its part is soloistic but also integrated into the overall band texture and often under pinned by the percussion, who have an important role in sustaining the momentum for the piece.
Holcombe Hill A traditional concert march in league with the great marches written by Rimmer, Allen and Alford. The name is taken from an area in Lancashire which is popular with walkers and is not far from where the composer lives.
Taps in Tempo Despite his European name, Jan Berenska was a Midlander and something of a youthful prodigy, playing piano, violin and cello and giving his first broadcast at the age of 15 from Station 5IT based in Witton, near Birmingham in the days of crystal sets. He made his professional debut as a multi-instrumentalist in , playing in the pit at London's Drury Lane Theatre for a pantomime. In , he formed a dance band which toured all over the country. It features a bright, catchy melody, dazzling arpeggios and scales and four-mallet chords to show off the xylophonist's technique.
This arrangement was specially created for the virtuoso percussionist, Simone Rebello. Summer Storm Antonio Vivaldi was born in Venice and began his adult life in the church, becoming known as the 'Red Priest', presumably due to his sandy-coloured hair. Health problems prevented him continuing actively in the priesthood and he turned his attention to music. Of these, the 12 violin concerti known as The Four Seasons from the opus 8 set, The Trial of Harmony and Invention , have become the best known.
The third concerto, Summer, includes a graphic description of a thunderstorm which makes an effective showpiece when played by any solo instrument. Sadly, Vivaldi died in poverty in Vienna, whilst trying vainly to secure commissions for himself, but his music has survived to become some of the best loved in the world. Ennio Morricone's immortal theme is the basis for a "shoot-out" between "Clint Eastwood" and a "Mexican Bandit", but un fortunately the conductor gets caught in the cross fire!
A lot of fun for both band and audience. Softly, Softly Softly, Softly was originally composed as the signature tune for a BBC Television series about life on the police force. This superb 'big band style' arrangement works brilliantly for wind band and is a lot of fun with suggested choreography instructions to enhance presentation.

Caught in the Web The piece begins with the introduction of the two themes, with the building of the tarantella being interspersed with passages foretelling the fly and its demise.

Echoes of the East This exciting addition to wind band repertoire comes from the pen of Rodney Newton who has taken traditional folk tunes from Bulgaria and Romania and blended them into a showcase featuring soloists and the band as a whole.

Village Wedding' sets the scene for a Romanian gypsy band that has come down from the mountains to entertain the guests with their distinctive songs and dances.
Everything is done at maximum speed, all the soloists trying to outdo each other in terms of brilliance. A fantastic concert Finale - Superb! Flame of Independence Given as a gift to United States of America by the people of France, the Statue of Liberty is one of the most recognisable icons in the world and stands as a universal symbol of freedom and democracy. Here, it is the inspiration for Dan Price's superb curtain-raiser. The trees growing on the mountainside in this area release hydrocarbons into the atmosphere.
The natural haze produced in this process, when the range is viewed from a distance, gives the mountain a distinctive blue-ish colour. In the early s, western settlers moved into Virginia and Georgia. As their trade and industry increased in size, so did the land they required. This expansion included encroachment into Native American's land which caused frequent hostility between settlers and tribes.
Eventually the native inhabitants were pushed further and further into the west and eventually out of the Blue Ridge mountain range. Blue Ridge is now predominantly a tourist area stretching across two national parks, Shenandoah and the Great Smoky Mountains. Sunrise Over Blue Ridge takes its inspiration from the wonderful landscapes which can be seen in this part of the world.
Purcell Variants Purcell Variants was originally composed for the Brass Band, Black Dyke Band, and is dedicated to their musical director, Nicholas Childs and has now been transcribed for wind band by the composer. Purcell Variants is based on Purcell's Queen Mary's Funeral Music, which consists of four canzonas for brass , two elegies and an anthem. The first movement begins by sounding some of Purcell's original music in the trombones and horns, underpinned by a timpani roll with the woodwind articulating the beginnings and endings of the phrases.
This leads into a cadenza for trumpet and alto saxophone before the movement heads in different directions, leading us to its mysterious end, where the original music is sounded this time in the 'stabs' of the clarinets and alto saxophone. Originally composed for the funeral of Queen Mary in , Purcell's original funeral music was used later that same year for Purcell's own funeral - he died aged only The second movement is an elegy, inspired by this story. After an introduction a disjointed last post , the main melody of the movement is introduced by the solo euphonium, with other solo roles for flute, oboe and alto saxophone.
This is then taken over by the trumpets who lead us into the middle section of the movement. This is a quasi-funeral march, inspired by the image of Purcell's coffin being taken to its final resting point. The main melody returns in the flute, oboe and alto saxophone, this time more elaborated. The movement ends with a snare drum fading away - perhaps a metaphor. The Finale is a fast and furious movement combining thematic material from the two previous movements with new rhythmical ideas.
This takes us through to the final passage - the triumphant return of Purcell's original theme. The poem has been set with other melodies through-out its existence but it is the original pairing with Monk's tune that remains it's most popular and loved setting. In addition to regular use in memorial services, state occasions and festivals of remembrance, the hymn has made appearances in countless film and television programmes and is still sung regularly at the start of important sports events. Here a setting by renowned Welsh composer Karl Jenkins, arranged for wind band by Prof.
Peter Graham, ensures this popular hymn tune will remain an audience favourite for years to come. The story revolves around a rough-and-tumble fisherman from the Louisiana bayous, who is gifted with a wonderful, if unschooled voice. He is discovered by the director of the New Orleans French Opera David Niven , and falls in love with the prima donna, a refined young soprano Kathryn Grayson.
The film has sunk into obscurity, but Be My Love survives as one of Mario Lanza's best known signature songs. This arrangement has firmly established itself in the euphonium repertoire over the years, and remains one of Ray Farr's most popular arrangements.
Over the years the song was covered by many major stars, turning it into an absolute evergreen around the world. The beauty of the melody is also suited for mellow sounding instruments like the Eb tenor horn; a great reason for the British composer and arranger Christopher Bond to make a version for brass band and tenor horn. Multi-cultural ethnic influences, along with the driving rhythms that reflect the perseverance and hard work of those mission-minded pioneers, are both important components that make Frontier Vision an outstanding choice for your concert or contest.
Viking Age The Viking age lasted from the late eighth, to the middle of the eleventh century. During this period, Scandinavian warriors and merchants explored, plundered and left their mark on numerous territories. This work is based on a series of four notes that appear in different forms, consisting of 4 movements: Northern Men, Explorer, Raids and Heritage. It is an impressive and spectacular piece, with lots of interesting and playful parts for all sections. This is a perfect contest piece or an outstanding work for thematic concerts.
The beautiful song When you wish upon a Star is not only popular from the animation film itself, but also as a separate song. It has been covered by many big artists throughout the years. It is perfect for brass band. Will your nose grow whilst playing? Strong rhythms and often-abundant musical climaxes are two important characteristics of this rich and varied musical style.

In form it draws from the overture style, although the themes are self-existing and the piece is programmatic. Working well as a festival opener, it sets a mood of excitement. Following the rhythmic fanfares of the opening, the first theme is presented in the cornets followed by a return to the same rhythmic material. A second theme appears in the horn section and is developed, changing into a darker and sinister form of the same motif. Eventually a Maestoso section is reached, full of sustained block chords in the cornets and trombones, as the rest of the band counters with cascading lines that weave straight through the brighter instruments.

Saxophone The saxophone is a family of woodwind instruments. Saxophones are made of brass and played with a single-reed mouthpiece similar to that of the clarinet. Although most saxophones are made from brass, they are categorized as woodwind instruments, because sound is produced by an oscillating reed, traditionally made out of woody cane, rather than lips vibrating in a mouthpiece cup as with the brass instrument family; as with the other woodwinds, the pitch of the note being played is controlled by covering holes in the body tube to control the resonant frequency of the air column by changing the effective length of the tube.
The saxophone is used in classical music, military bands, marching bands and contemporary music; the saxophone is used as a solo and melody instrument or as a member of a horn section in some styles of rock and roll and popular music. Saxophone players are called saxophonists. Since the first saxophone was invented by the Belgian instrument maker Adolphe Sax in the early s, saxophones have been produced in a variety of series distinguished by transpositions within instrument sets and tuning standard.
Sax patented the saxophone on June , in two groups of seven instruments each. Instruments from the series pitched in C and F never gained a foothold and constituted only a small percentage of instruments made by Sax. Low Pitch saxophones are equivalent in tuning to modern instruments. C soprano and C melody saxophones were produced for the casual market as parlor instruments during the early twentieth century.
The saxophones with widest use and availability are the sopranos, altos and baritones. In the keyed ranges of the various saxophones, the pitch is controlled by keys with shallow cups in which are fastened leather pads that seal toneholes, controlling the resonant length, thereby frequency, of the air column within the body tube. Small holes called vents, located between the toneholes and the mouthpiece, are opened by an octave key to raise the pitch by eliminating the fundamental frequency, leaving the first harmonic as the frequency defining the pitch. A high G key is most common on modern soprano saxophones.
Notes above F are considered part of the altissimo register of any saxophone, can be produced using advanced embouchure techniques and fingering combinations.
Program Notes Index and Search
Keywork facilitating altissimo playing is a feature of modern saxophones. Modern saxophone players have extended the range to over four octaves on alto. Music for most saxophones is notated using treble clef; because all saxophones use the same key arrangement and fingering to produce a given notated pitch, it is not difficult for a competent player to switch among the various sizes when the music has been suitably transposed, many do so. This can be useful if a orchestra lacks one of those instruments; the straight soprano and sopranino saxophones consist of a straight conical tube with a flared bell at the end opposite the mouthpiece.
The interior of the tube is called the bore. Alto and larger saxophones include a detachable curved neck above the highest tone hole, directing the mouthpiece to the player's mouth and, with rare exceptions, a U-shaped bow that directs the bell upward and a curve in the throat of the bell directing it forward. The set of curves near the bell has become a distinctive feature of the saxophone family, to the extent that soprano and sopranino saxes are sometimes made in the curved style. The baritone and contrabass saxophones accommodate the length of the bore with extra bows and right-angle bends between the main body and the mouthpiece; the left hand operates keys from the upper part of the body tube while the right hand operates keys from the lower part.
The right thumb sits under a thumb hook and left thumb is placed on a thumb rest to stabilize and balance the saxophone, while the weight of most saxophones is supported by a neckstrap attached to a strap ring on the rear of the body of the instrument; the left thumb operates the octave key.
With soprano and smaller saxophones weight tends to be borne by the right thumb while a neckstrap provides security for the instrument. Keys consist of the cups, and.
