Description

Branwen is the second in a series of compositions for brass band by Cai Isfryn, based on the tale from Welsh mythology of Branwen, the Welsh goddess of love.  (The first, Vengeance, will be published later in 2009).

Here we hear a character study of Branwen, with the soft and lyrical melody of the soprano cornet representing her beauty and the smooth underlying triplet feel of the band accompaniment creating an atmospheric and gentle effect.

Branwen was premièred by Bert van Thienen and the Cory Band at the Gala Concert of the 2009 European Brass Band Championships held in Ostende, Belgium.
