Occasion - Parts & Score
Composed by Edward Gregson
Second Section - National Brass Band Championship Finals 2019
Duration: 11 minutes
Occasion was commissioned by the National Youth Brass Band Championship of Great Britain, held at the Royal Albert Hall, London in October 1986. It has four movements: "Fanfare", "Festivities", "Elegy" and "Dance". The opening "Fanfare" was originally written as a wedding fanfare for Paul Patterson, a long time composer friend, in 1981, while the "Elegy" and "Dance" were commissioned as a test piece for the first Westsound/Ayrshire invitation contest in 1982 for the leading bands in Scotland. "Festivities" was therefore written last, both to complete the work and give it its essentially ‘festive’ character. Except for the "Elegy" which is contemplative, the music throughout is extrovert and joyful. This was used as the set test-piece at the Section 3 Finals in 1989.
