Resplendence - New Solo for Mark Wilkinson

Resplendence - New Solo for Mark Wilkinson

The Music Company (UK) Ltd is delighted to release the solo and band accompaniment for an exciting new solo, commissioned by cornet virtuoso Mark Wilkinson, and composed by Lucy Pankhurst.

The piece is being featured on Mark's new CD, released on 4th May 2013, and whilst the original is an appropriately challenging work to fully display Mark's versatility and technical prowess, an alternative solo part is also included which offers a more comfortable range for performance. It features a strong driving rock beat and uses some great optional effects (including an echo cornet), to produce an extremely refreshing new addition to the advanced cornet soloist's repertoire.

A wonderful piece, composed by one of today's leading composers for one of today's foremost cornet players - a fine combination which is now available to share by cornet players around the world.

ABRSM's New Tuba Syllabus - 'A Haworth Suite' Selected for Multiple Grades

We are delighted to announce that Andrew Duncan's 'A Haworth Suite' has been selected for multiple grades in the new ABRSM Tuba Syllabus which commences in 2013.

The set comes with a bound piano accompaniment and individual parts for Eb Bass (TC), Tuba (Concert Pitch) and Bb Bass/Euphonium (TC). The piece is a particular favourite of Andrew's and it takes its inspiration from the charming Victorian town of Haworth in West Yorkshire, home of the famous Brontë sisters.

The suite has four short descriptive movements:

Flying a Kite over Haworth Moor
The Old Steam Railway
A Lazy Summers Day at Brontë Falls
A Cat and Mouse Chase Down Main Street!

Each movement has been selected for a different Grade, covering Grades 3, 4, 5 and 7.

We are thrilled for Andrew and for our publishing house - this is fine recognition of the quality of the writers and publications The Music Company (UK) Ltd represents.
