Surrey Brass is proud to have commissioned "Concorde" by Rob Davies

This piece is written for large brass ensemble with percussion. Forces are 6 trumpets/1 doubling flugel, optional 7th trumpet, 4 horns, 3 trombones, bass trombone doubling contrabass trombone, 2 tubas, optional euphonium, 3 percussion. The duration of the TEST FLIGHT version of the piece is 8 minutes in a single continuous movement.

The TEST FLIGHT version of the piece contains the final 8 minutes of music of the complete piece. It is more accessible, and considerably easier to play than the full version. It begins with a jazz section, and reprises all the themes in various styles before building to a huge impressive ending.

A SAMPLE SCORE for the TEST FLIGHT version is available on request - please Contact us. 


This piece received its world premiere on 4th May 2007 at Brooklands to celebrate the beginning of the "Get Out and About" Elmbridge Cultural Festival 2007. The Premiere was conducted by Tom Hammond.


Want a sneak preview of "Concorde"? Of course you do!!! A soundbite of "Droop Snoot" is playing - it's synthesised, but gives you an impression of just a small part of this fantastic new piece of music.

 

Surrey Brass recorded this piece on 6th May 2007 and a DVD is available from this site containing the music and a slideshow of images from the life of Concorde.


Product is delivered as ZIP/PDF digital download containing Score and Parts. Programme Notes and other information are available in the Premier Concert Programme which is also added to the delivery.
