A Phoenix in Brass (2022)
'A Phoenix in Brass' was commissioned by the Fred Longworth High School Brass Band to celebrate the rebuilding of the band with youth players following the events of the Covid-19 pandemic.
The concept was to create a joyful and celebratory piece which evoked the idea of a phoenix rising from the ashes (hence the title!)
The work is dedicated to Josh Hall, an FLHS alumnus and former member of the band, who was a very close friend of the composer and who tragically passed away at the age of just 21. He was a fabulous musician and a true friend - hopefully this piece goes some way in celebrating his memory.
'A Phoenix in Brass' is available to listen and to purchase score & parts from Larch Music Publishing.
