Pyrotechnic Variations on 1812

Composer: Christian Overhead

Series: Prima Vista Musikk

SKU: SPS30241-group

Quick Overview

Pyrotechnic Variations on 1812 was composed for Brass Band Schoonhoven, and used as part of their programme for Brass in Concert in November 2016.


‘Pyrotechnic Variations’ is a modern day twist on Tchaikovsky’s famous ‘1812’ Overture. A heraldic opening introduces some familiar themes, before leading into a frantic virtuosic passage (especially for euphonium!), where quotes can be heard all through the band. This subsides into the central ‘slow’ section (via the unusual route of a bass and drum kit feature). After a whisper quiet reintroduction of the main theme, we build to the ‘canon’ finale – ending in a glorious celebratory style!
