  1. NEW RELEASES - APRIL 2005

    Hey Presto!
    By Gerry McColl
    Euphonium Solo (with Brass Band)

    This new gem of a solo for Euphonium is a rousing piece from start to finish. Starting with heavy syncopation from the band before the soloist can show off with this catchy little tune that you will be whistling for days (if you can whistle that fast!) The middle section then breaks into a beautiful legato tune for the soloist whilst the rest of the band keep on ploughing away underneath. This is one of the best new entertaining solos around.



    Brandenburg Concerto No.2 - 1st Movement (Allegro)
    Arr. John Abbott
    TRIO for Eb Soprano Cornet & 2 Bb Concets with Brass Band

    This 1st movement has been skillfully arranged as a trio for Soprano Cornet and 2 Bb Cornets (solo cornet, and repiano). This is sure to test the strongest of players, utilising the soprano's high register and making work of the low register on the Bb cornets. As well as keeping the band entertained with running semi-quavers (and some wonderful intervals for the basses!!!


    Brandenburg Concerto No.2 - 3rd Movement (Allegro Assai)
    Arr. John Abbott
    TRIO for Eb Soprano Cornet & 2 Bb Concets with Brass Band

    This 3rd movement has been skillfully arranged as a trio for Soprano Cornet and 2 Bb Cornets (solo cornet, and repiano). This is sure to test the strongest of players, starting with the famous trumpet opening. The Baritones, Euphoniums and Basses also play a very important role in this arrangement. This certainly is a hard piece to perform for the three soloists, but its well worth the challenge.



    Sibelius Fantasy
    by Gavin Somerset
    Brass Band

    Composed in 2003 for a composition competition, this work uses elements of three major work by the Finnish composer Jean Sibelius (1865-1957). The three being...

    Symphony No.5,
    Finlandia,
    Karelia Suite (March)


    The piece starts with an atmospheric opening before setting of in bar 10 with a tempo that will remain for most of the piece. The main original theme is brought in at A before the famous sequence from Sibelius' Symphony No.5 enters at B and then very distinctly at C. The music then rollercoasts through keeping all sections of the band busy, until we reach J when the solo Euphonium can shine, helped along by Flugel and Repiano. The Molto Vivo before K sets off with dazzling trills from the cornet section, and bringing with it the theme from Finlandia in bar 165, followed shortly by the March from the Karelia Suite. From N to the end, all three pieces are brought to a final climax together. A rousing piece and makes an interesting change to a direct transcription.
