    Coogee Funk (Symphonic Wind Band/Score & Parts) - Gavin Higgins

    is a wild and fast paced exploration of funk riffs and rhythms, divided into three core sections. The work opens with a blazing brash fanfare that, after a distant call from an off-stage saxophone quartet, subsides into a drunken nautical seascape. After a series of solos the work charges headlong into a wild funk fugue, coming to a melancholic close by a lonely horn solo.

    Danceries (Wind Band/Score & Parts) - Kenneth Hesketh

    In , by Kenneth Hesketh, the melodies themselves are a mixture of old and new. Where the old occurs it has been adapted in mood and composition and is often interspersed with completely new material. The contemporary harmonies and rhythms bring a breath of new into these themes and add drama to the suite.

    Der Aufstand (Wind Band/Score & Parts) - Gavin Higgins

    (German for 'riot') is not a descriptive work, nor is it solely based on the riots of 2011. It does, however, draw on the idea of opposing forces and escalating anger. The work falls into two contrasting sections that are linked by a series of repeated, 'screaming' chords. A slow build drives the first section from a single pitch to a blazing orchestral tutti. The second section is a fast and wild series of fanfares and driving rhythms that ultimately cannot be sustained. In many ways this mirrors the first. Both sections open on single tones (Bb and E) and grow to a climax of brass and hammered chords. The first performance took place on the last day of the 2012 Olympic Games. Der Aufstand is a noisy antithesis to the celebratory fanfare.

    Four Cornish Dances (Wind Band/Score & Parts) - Malcolm Arnold

    Ray Farr's arrangement of Malcolm Arnold's suite brilliantly retains the atmosphere of the orchestral original with its evocation of Cornish sea-farers, of deserted tin mines, of marching bands, Methodism, May Days and Moody and Sankey hymns.
