Pyrotechnic Variations on 1812

Pyrotechnic Variations on 1812 was composed for Brass Band Schoonhoven, and used as part of their programme for Brass in Concert in November 2016.

The work is a modern-day twist on Tchaikovsky’s famous 1812 Overture.  A heraldic opening introduces some familiar themes, before leading into a frantic virtuosic passage (especially for euphonium!), where quotes can be heard all through the band.  This subsides into the central ‘slow’ section (via the unusual route of a bass and drum kit feature).  After a whisper-quiet reintroduction of the main theme, we build to the ‘canon’ finale – ending in a glorious celebratory style!
