Fantasy - Cornet in B flat with Band


Buy this product

FANTASY for Cornet was first performed under its original title of 'Kenwood Carol' by John Hudson and the Britannia Building Society Band, with the Composer conducting at the Kenwood Concert Bowl in London in June 1988. Fantasy was commissioned by Michael Webber on behalf of English Heritage and dedicated to the memory of the Composer's father. Fantasy mirrors the progress of the seasons from early Spring to the coming of Summer. In the latter stages of the work the composer introduces the mediaeval English round which starts with the words "Sumer is a-cumen in, Lhude sing cuckoo". The Fantasy is available both with Brass Band and Piano accompaniment. N.B. The Piano version is not an exact replica of the Brass Band score, but, in many details, has been re-composed in order to offer a valid pianistic equivalent to the original. (Recorded by Richard Marshall with the Grimethorpe Band)
