This release continues the Royal Northern College of Music Wind Orchestra’s innovatory survey of wind music
from around the world. The RNCM Wind Orchestra is recognised as one of the leading conservatory ensembles in
the world and performs internationally. It has already released several highly enjoyable discs on Chandos, all
notable for their energy and brilliance.
Liverpudlian composer Kenneth Hesketh has a special interest in writing music for symphonic wind ensemble.
Hesketh wrote Diaghilev Dances in response to a commission from a consortium of British music colleges, as
homage to the dramatic and colourful scores written for Sergei Diaghilev’s Ballets Russes. This opulently detailed
scoring, with keyboard and harp adds to the usual wind ensemble line-up. Adam Gorb is well known
internationally for his wind ensemble compositions. Gorb describes Awayday as reflecting his experience as a
musical director in the theatre and his love of ‘the great days of the Broadway musical, with its irresistible
brashness and irrepressible high spirits’ – though the frequent changes of metre suggest also a dash of Stravinsky or
Copland. Buxton Orr wrote A John Gay Suite, based on themes from The Beggar’s Opera, the hugely popular
ballad opera, for which the author John Gay fitted words set to many existing folk tunes and other popular
melodies. John McCabe describes Canyons as a personal response ‘to the imposing landscapes of the American
South West’, stressing that these are ‘not merely grandiose’ but also ‘bursting with an inner energy’. The four
movements are played without a break and builds up in texture and rhythmic pattern. The final composer in this
collection is Sir Malcolm Arnold. His Water Music is permeated with dotted rhythms of the baroque French
overture - homage to Handel’s Water Music, and continues with a single tune in the vein of some of Arnold’s
popular English Dances, repeated in different keys and colourings.
This is an important collection of contemporary British composers, and new wind music, played with distinction.



'This disc of ‘British Wind Band Classics’ contains some real musical treats, played with relish and a true rhythmic
verve'
