Program Notes

In this six-minute curtain raiser, my inspiration has come from the great days of the American musical comedy. I have tried to express in a brief sonata form movement the exhilaration of “getting away from it all” for a few short hours on a festive bank holiday.

Musically the piece is a homage to the great days of the Broadway musical with its irresistible brashness and irrepressible high spirits. If you can envisage George Gershwin, Leonard Bernstein, Igor Stravinsky, and James Bond traveling together at 100 miles per hour in a open-top sports car, I think you’ll get the idea.

- Program Note by composer

Jonathan Wintringham's amazing transcription captures all the fun and verve of this Gorb classic. However, it comes with a health and safety warning: 'Not for the faint hearted'!
