Program Notes

Match Day takes its inspiration from a night in May 2005, when the football team I have supported since my childhood, the Liverpool FC, won the European Cup in what was considered by many to be one of the greatest football matches of all time.

The piece is not only inspired by a football march, but also takes its musical materials from chants and songs that you will hear at 3:00 PM on a Saturday afternoon at any football ground in Britain.

Match Day was written as a result of a commission from the National Youth Brass Band of Great Britain (with funds from Youth Music), and their musical director, Bramwell Tovey, to whom the piece is dedicated an who conducted the first performance in April, 2006.
