Match Day

Brass Band

Match Day takes its inspiration from a night in May 2005, when the team the composer supported from his childhood, Liverpool FC, won the European Cup in what was considered by many to be one of the greatest football matches of all time.

The piece is not only inspired by a football match, but also takes its musical material from chants and songs that you will hear at 3PM on a Saturday afternoon at any football ground in the country.

Match Day was written as a result of a commission from the National Youth Brass Band of Great Britain, and their Musical Director, Bramwell Tovey, to whom the piece is dedicated.
