Notes & Reviews:

This disc of music by internationally-renowned British composer Philip Wilby includes several world premiere recordings: 'A Breathless Alleluia' is an affectionate tribute to the Black Dyke Band's conductor Nicholas Childs; 'Paganini Variations' exploits all the soloistic brilliance of the modern brass band; 'Memory' evokes the power of music to awaken emotions in even the stoniest heart; while 'Symphonic Variations on Amazing Grace' is a stirring treatment of the famous hymn. The 'Euphonium Concerto' is a tour de force whose emotional heart is its songlike third movement.
