New for 2018: Brass Ensemble

Principal Tutor: John Jones

Alongside work with the two orchestras (see their pages for specific pieces) you will have the chance to learn and perform brass ensemble repertoire, again guided by our team of professional and highly experienced tutors.SW1_4051-1
The Ensembles Concert on the Thursday evening will showcase some of the works rehearsed during the week, while the final orchestral concerts on the Friday will, of course, include plenty for the brass players as well!

Brass repertoire for 2018 included:

  • Barber – Mutations
  • Bernstein – On the Town
  • De Falla – Excerpts from the Three Cornered Hat
  • Langford – London Miniatures
  • Mahler – Urlicht
  • Premru – Divertimento
  • Stravinsky – Intrada from Norwegian Moods

As with the other ensembles you will also have the opportunity to participate in further open sessions. This is a tremendous chance for the brass players to work on a wide variety of repertoire on one course.
