The Essence of Brass (Youth Band) - BrassFestUK 2019

Composed by Gavin Somerset


Two years after the inaugural BrassFestUK event comes the anthem for 2019, 'The Essence of Brass'. Composer Gavin Somerset has revisited many of the ideas contained within the very popular work written for the inaugural BrassFestUK, The Spirit of Brass two years ago, to deliver once again, an uplifting original work for Brass Bands that will keep both players and audiences entertained. The piece opens with the work’s heroic theme which has a genuine feel-good factor throughout, making this year’s anthem a sure hit with all bands once again. NB. This Youth Band edition also works alongside the original senior band version.
