    Band director and radio presenter Yutaka Nishida hails from Tokyo and has long been a friend of composer Philip Sparke.

The programme is called The Bandwagon and the radio station commissioned Philip Sparke to write a march which could be used as a theme tune for the programme.

    A Klezmer Karnival (Wind Band Score & Parts) - Sparke, Philip

    Klezmer music originated in the 'shtetl' (villages) and the ghettos of Eastern Europe, where itinerant Jewish troubadours, known as 'klezmorim', had performed at celebrations, particularly weddings, since the early Middle Ages. Since the 16th century, lyrics had been added to klezmer music, due to the 'badkhn' (the master of ceremony at weddings), to the 'Purimshpil' (the play of Esther at Purim) and to traditions of the Yiddish theatre, but the term gradually became synonymous with instrumental music, particularly featuring the violin and clarinet. In recent years it has again become very popular and in A Klezmer Karnival Philip Sparke has used three contrasting traditional tunes to form a suite that will bring a true karnival atmosphere to any concert. 04:45

    A Tameside Overture (Concert Band - Score and Parts) - Sparke, Philip

    A fanfare opening followed by the sonorous full band leads to a lively tuneful allegro. This is developed, with the occasional change of metre, before the fanfare returns, cleverly counterpointed against the music from the quicker section. This overture is yet another brilliant Philip Sparke work.

    Barn Dance and Cowboy Hymn (Concert Band - Score and Parts) - Sparke, Philip

    A brilliantly inventive miniature from this gifted British composer. Philip Sparke takes the famous dance, but gives it new twists and turns of rhythm and meter. Halfway through the cowboys are heard singing in the distance and everything stops for a moment. Dance interjections cut through the tranquility, and soon everything starts up again. A great showcase!

    BETWEEN THE TWO RIVERS (Fanfare Band) - Sparke, Philip

    Between the Two Rivers was commissioned by Fanfare 'Prins Hendrik', from Aalst in the Netherlands. The title derives from the fact that the town of Aalst lies between two tributaries of the River Dommel. The community is a highly religious one, so the famous Luther chorale, Ein' Feste Burg, was an obvious choice for Philip Sparke to use as the theme for this new work. It takes the form of a theme with four contrasting variations. Variation 1 is a moto perpetuo, variation 2 has a slower march like feel, variation 3 is a sinister slow movement and the final variation is in the form of a lyrical fugue. Between The Two Rivers is sure to become a major work in modern fanfare band repertoire. Duration: 15:00
