An original composition for brass band by Martyn Brabbins.
This work was created by Brabbins early in his career and combines his creativity and passion for the sounds of brass bands . It is one of two compositions from that era (the other being There and Back) which have now been given a new lease of life and made available to the general public through The Music Company (UK) Ltd.
With great chords, sounds and unexpected bursts of energy, the work lasts just 1′ 48″, making it ideal to be positioned as an attention grabbing opener or a contrasting interlude to greatly enhance the interest of a concert.
The brass band version was originally premiered by The Dalmellington Band at The Cumnock Tryst 2017, and the Symphonic Wind Orchestra adaptation was performed by The BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra in 2019.
Available here for brass band. Also available for Symphonic Wind Orchestra.*
*Brass Band version for purchase/Symphonic Wind Orchestra version for hire only.
