Anglo Music Press announce that Music of the Spheres, used by YBS at the Europeans, is now in print and available for all those who have asked to 'have a go' at it!

"The easiest way to describe the piece is that it is perhaps the nearest composition for brass band that sounds like blockbuster film music it is the soundtrack of a sci-fi film from Ridley Scott or Steven Spielberg; music that someone like John Williams or Danny Elfman would write all fantastically atmospheric, brilliantly scored with colours, textures, effects and timbres mixed with flowing musical lines that capture the essence of the subject matter to a tee. The concept from the composer is captured completely; the end result is a piece that takes the brass band to a different plane of achievement, both technically and musically." 4BarsRest

Many thanks! I can confirm that this piece is very difficult to play,but practice makes perfect!If there are bands out there who want a challenge,and don't mind hard work,then I can definately recommend this piece.Thanks Phillip for providing yet another masterpiece for the brass band movement.

By the way I had a long chat with Mr Sparke in Glasgow just after our performance of 'Spheres' to complain about the dynamics in the bass parts as it only goes to fff!I have asked for ffff in his next piece!
