Free music - until 14 November!

Posted by Martin Cordner on Sunday, November 6, 2016, In : new music 

Hi everybody

I'm going to need to make the 'five free pieces' offer a time-limited one, so it'll run until 14 November 2016.

So far ten bands have availed of the music and will all be supporting a Salvation Army project with time or money - I've left it to them to decided what they will do.

Also, please note that the five pieces here are all advanced level. I plan to release some intermediate level music in due course.

New music - free to bands

Posted by Martin Cordner on Friday, October 28, 2016, In : new music 

Hey everybody

I'm pleased to release five recent compositions to bands free of charge. Study scores are also freely available to individuals for private use. All I ask is that you seek out your nearest Salvation Army centre and make them a donation.

Music Update - February

Posted by Martin Cordner on Monday, February 9, 2015, In : new music 

Hey there everyone... it's been a while since any updates so thought you might want to hear what's happening on the music front.
I've recently completed a 9-minute major work around the Creation story as told in Genesis 1. I'm delighted to have been approached by a Christian Brass Band organisation who want to look at the piece for a contest it is organising somewhere in the world this year. As it is possible it will  be chosen as a test piece I can't say any more about it yet. Watch this spac...

Americana Complete

Posted by Martin Cordner on Friday, November 7, 2014, In : new music 

As sometimes happens in composition, Americana journeyed in a slightly different direction than planned. Read about where it ended up here.

Really grateful to the New York Staff Band for the invitation to write for them. I hope the piece will serve effectively the mission of the band.

New work for NYSB

Posted by Martin Cordner on Wednesday, September 24, 2014, In : new music 

In the making right now is 'Americana' - a new overture for the New York Staff Band and their visit to the UK and the Boundless International Congress June-July 2015.

The work seeks to capture some of the essence of American classical and contemporary music. With Copland-esque themes and driving rock rhythms the contemporary work will feature American hymn tunes, and provide a platform for the NYSB to showcase some of its principal players.

I am planning to deliver 'Americana' early in October.
