Dick Turpin's Ride to York

Composer: Rodney Newton

Duration: 3:00

SKU: SPS30098


Quick Overview

Commissioned in 1998 by trombonist Brett Baker, Dick Turpin's Ride to York, was originally scored for trombone and brass band. Inspiration for the work is taken from Alfred Noyes poem The Ballad of Dick Turpin, which describes a fictional attempt by notorious highwayman, Dick Turpin, to ride from London to York to escape justice and the inevitable hangman's noose. The work is rich and dark in colour but paints a clear musical representation of its subject. Galloping horses, post horns and racing stage coaches all make an appearance in this wonderful solo and the listener has their work cut out trying to keep up with the highwayman as he is chased through the storm ridden night.
