What happened in 1989? I wrote this piece for piano, and later scored it for brass band! It begins in a thoughtful mood, then very soon moves into a bluesy style. After an up-tempo dance section, and a brief re-cap of the beginning, it finishes with a majestic coda, which really shows off that special sound that only a brass band can make. Although it is called 1989, it can be any memorable year that the listener wished it to be. Good key players make this playable by any band.
