March On The Pole Star

COMPOSER: Peter Maxwell Davies
PUBLISHER: Chester Music
PRODUCT TYPE: Set of Parts

Like many of Davies’s smaller works, this is in a relatively lucid modal style, midway between the clarity of his carols and the complications of his symphonies: the opening is in a kind of B flat minor, and the close is triumphantly in G flat major. What happens in between -- always in 4/4 march

Description
Like many of Davies’s smaller works, this is in a relatively lucid modal style, midway between the clarity of his carols and the complications of his symphonies: the opening is in a kind of B flat minor, and the close is triumphantly in G flat major. What happens in between -- always in 4/4 march time but usually with exuberant syncopations and cross-rhythms - is a sequence of transformations of the theme heard first from the second trumpet on the top line at the start; it will be heard again from the horn, and from the first trumpet in upward-moving inversion, with brilliant climaxes to punctuate. An ebullient piece, in a simplified yet still very distinctive harmonic andrhythmic style, and surely destined to make a rousing encore item. Arranged for brass quintet.
