  • Dynasty - Black Dyke Band conducted by Nicholas Childs

    16:29

    Dynasty was premiered at the 2019 British Open Brass Band Championships and pays tribute to one of the brass community's legendary figures, Harry Mortimer (1902 - 1992). Using key passages from Mortimer's autobiography On Brass as the source for the narrative and in keeping with the heritage nature of the subject, the work takes the form of a Symphonic Poem, a musical structure first introduced to contest audiences at the Crystal Palace in 1913. The work opens with a four-note leitmotif and the timeline unfolds as follows:
    0:06 1 - Harry (One's destiny decided at birth “I'll make him the best cornet player in England”).
    2:21 2 - War (Why do the nations so furiously rage together? Fred volunteers for military service)
    3:50 3 - Theatre (And suddenly “I dashed to the rescue like a hero in the silent movies I was about to get to know so well”)
    4:34 4 – Journey (Rejoice greatly “A new life in Cheshire with a promising band called Foden's”)
    6:45 5 – Together (Come unto me “A golden age”)
    7:48 6 – Farewell (For behold, darkness “Fred's death surely marked the passing of an era”)
    11:30 7 – Amen (The Trumpet shall sound - Farewell reprised)

    Music by Nicholas Brodszky.
    Words by Paul Francis Webster.

    I'll walk with God
    From this day on
    His helping hand I'll lean upon
    This is my prayer my humble plea
    May the Lord be ever with me

    There is no death though eyes grow dim
    There is no fear when I'm near to him
    I'll lean on him forever
    And he'll forsake me never

    He will not fail me as long as my faith is strong
    What ever road I may walk alone

    I'll walk with God
    I'll take his hand
    I'll talk with God he'll understand
    I'll pray to him
    Each day to him

    And he'll hear the words that I say
    His hand will guide my throne and rod
    And I'll never walk alone
    While I walk with God.

  • Metropolis 1927 - Peter Graham

    16:10

    The Black Dyke Band perform Metropolis 1927 by Peter Graham at the New York Staff Band's 129th annual festival held on March 19, 2016 at the Centennial Memorial Temple in New York City.

    Fritz Lang's 1927 science fiction epic Metropolis is considered to be a masterpiece of cinematic vision and a high point of German Expressionist filmmaking.
    Set in a future dystopian world the film introduces the viewer to two contrasting communities living in the vast city of Metropolis. Those
    above ground live a life of privilege and pleasure serviced by the underground-dwelling drone workers whose role is to maintain and operate the banks of machines which provide the city's power.
    Lang's film, which can be considered a type of 20th century morality play, draws upon a range of themes and influences from Marxist ideals and social satire to overt religious symbolism.
    The music does not attempt to precise the plot, such as it is, but simply reflects my musical responses to Lang's noirish visual style and set designs – the brooding machine rooms, the decadent nightclubs, the gothic cathedral and so on – paradoxically a world of terrifying beauty.

    Metropolis 1927 was commissioned by Bramwell Tovey and The National Youth Brass Band of Great Britain with funds provided by The Arts Council of England. The first performances took place
    in the Winter Gardens, Weston-super-Mare on Saturday 19th April and in the Cheltenham Town Hall on Sunday 20th April 2014.
    This revised version was premiered by The Black Dyke Band, conductor Nicholas Childs, at the 38th European Brass Band Championships in the Konzerthaus Freiburg, Germany, on Saturday 2 May 2015.
