UNIVERSITY WIND ORCHESTRA

THIS PERFORMANCE TOOK PLACE IN 2008 ‘Fanfares & Celebrations’ Kieran O’Riordan, conductors Philip Moore Nigel CLARKE Fanfares & Celebrations David BEDFORD Sea and Sky and Golden Hill Patrick DOYLE arr SHELDON Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire Adam GORB Awayday Ralph VAUGHAN WILLIAMS English Folk Song Suite VAUGHAN WILLIAMS Toccata Marziale In this, the first of a pair of concerts celebrating the achievements of the founding fathers of British wind music, we are commemorating the 50th anniversary of the death of Ralph Vaughan Williams with two of his most influential pieces for winds: the evergreen English Folk Song Suite and the rugged and uncompromising Toccata Marziale. Accompanying these seminal works are David Bedford’s magical Sea and Sky and Golden Hill, Adam Gorb’s riotous Awayday and Nigel Clarke’s Fanfares and Celebrations. Written for the 150th anniversary of the founding of the Royal Military School of Music, Clarke’s majestic work skilfully combines traditional bugle calls and other well-known tunes in a triumphant tribute. The second concert in this series, focusing on the music of Gustav Holst and Gordon Jacob, will take place on Sunday 8 March 2009.
