Program Notes

Song and Dance was written as a single-movement piece for a recording by the (then) GUS BDand in 1984 for cornet soloist and concert band. It was first performed by the band's principal cornet, Brian Grant. The Song commences with a 'Scotch snap' rhythm leading to a lyrical cadenza and ending with a return of the opening theme, muted. The Dance is lively and full of cross rhythms, but tonal and tuneful with constantly changing meters to serve the dancing melody.
