USA World premiere of Cornet Concerto by Nigel Clarke
Mysteries of the Horizon for cornet and Wind Orchestra was premiered on 23rd May 2015 at St Catherine’s University, St Paul, Minnesota, by Haren Vanhoorne, cornet, with the University of St. Thomas Wind Ensemble conducted by Matthew George. The soloist writes:
Mysteries of the Horizon is based upon four paintings by the Belgian artist René Margritte. This piece has everything that I was expecting for a Cornet Concerto. First of all it’s totally different than any other cornet music I’ve ever heard before but still it shows off all the qualities a cornet has to offer. It’s a real hard one this is, but I think this piece will be the level of playing for the years to come”.

USA NEW DECTET FOR WIND
Former President of CBDNA Eric Rombach-Kendall writes enthusiastically about a dectet for wind:
As you consider repertoire for next year I want to make you aware of a
recent work for 10 winds (pairs of flutes, oboes, clarinets, bassoons,
horns) by Stephen Gryc titled "Six Romances After Mendelssohn". This
is exceptional music based upon the opening of Mendelssohn`s "Scottish
Symphony". It is in one continuous movement about 12 minutes in duration.
Steve recently retired from the Hartt School and you may know of some
of his other wind music (Masquerade, Variations on a Theme of
Prokofiev, Concerto for Winds and Percussion, Evensong)
