march for brass band
c. 3.5 minutes
Premiere: 15 February 2014
National University Brass Band Championships of Great Britain 2014
Butterworth Hall, Warwick Arts Centre
Performed by the Cardiff University Brass Band
With this work I have attempted to compose a piece of music in the British band march tradition. The work pays homage to much of the stylistic and formal attributes which are so synonymous with band culture, but tries to find new ways to express and articulate these fundamental components.
Castell Corbett was commissioned by the Cardiff University Brass Band for performance at the National University Brass Band Championships of Great Britain 2014, held at the Butterworth Hall, Warwick.
