Description

This piece was written for the Welsh percussionist Leslie Lewis. Born in the Rhondda Valley, Lewis became a pupil of the legendary Ernest Parsons, timpanist and founder member of the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, a member of the instrument manufacturing family of E.A. Parsons & Company and an internationally-renowned authority on timpani and percussion. Lewis joined Parsons in the CBSO, becoming principal percussionist and later he was appointed solo percussionist with the BBC Theatre Orchestra in London. Sadly, the very morning he was to take up his new appointment, he stepped off the Birmingham train at Euston station, suffered a heart attack and died there and then on the platform - a tragic end to a promising career. 

Rodney Newton arranged this work for brass band. Here it is transcribed for fanfare band by Luc Vertomen
