Description

The 1812 Overture for Orchestra, Opus 49 is without doubt one of the most popular finales used by orchestras throughout the world.  Here we have a new arrangement for brass band skilfully crafted by Dr. Robert Childs.  The arrangement is shorter in duration than Tchaikovsky's original, but does not fluctuate from his key structure, making this version the most authentic to date.  The arrangement features full orchestral percussion including tubular bells and canon together with optional organ and fanfare brass groups.

Dr Childs's arrangement is featured by the Black Dyke Band on their CD Essential Dyke Vol V - Celebrate Rotary (DOYCD193).
