Well, this is my first blog post on my new site, so I figure I should use it to tell you what I have been doing recently.
I have finished a couple of pieces in the last few days; Manchester Concertino is a small (10 minute) work for cornet and band in 3 movements. Each movement has a different dedicatee (more on this in my next post), and the work will be premièred by Harmen Vanhoorne later this month in Belgium. I’ll post a copy of the solo part up here in the next few days…
Sentinel has been written for the 2011 National Youth Brass Band Championships of Great Britain – it turns out that writing music of an easier level is pretty tough! For those who would like a listen, there is a MIDI realisation here: Sentinel (right click, save as…)
Again, I will post more about the piece, including a sample score, in a few days. It is available for purchase from www.petermeechanmusic.co.uk
