Five new albums

Posted by Martin Cordner on Thursday, September 5, 2013, In : cd recordings 



Here in Britain we have an expression...'You wait a ages a bus, then two come at once.' Amazingly, this seems to have happened with some of my latest music; some of which comes out on five new brass band CDs this Autumn/Fall. Check out these great albums...


1. First in the hands of the paying public will be the International Staff Band's latest repertoire album Quest. This features Call of the Gospel and Fusion




2. Next up will be Brett Baker's album Novus Vox which he recorded with Enfield Ci...

Don't let this Escape you

Posted by Martin Cordner on Sunday, April 7, 2013, In : cd recordings 



Since receiving the latest ASB CD Escape Velocity on Friday I've listened to it a few times over the weekend and here are my first impressions. I must acknowledge though that I'm only in possession of the CD because they sent me a free one (though of course I would have bought one!) I'm very grateful - thanks guys.
 
First off congratulations to the band on what I am sure will be a very popular CD. They have done a great job with all the pieces in the varied and demanding track list. The sleeve...

New ASB recording: Artwork released

Posted by Martin Cordner on Monday, February 18, 2013, In : cd recordings 

 

Today Mon 18 Feb has seen the Amsterdam Staff Band release the artwork for their forthcoming recording Escape Velocity. I hinted at this ingenious work in my blog post here.  Credit goes to Nathan Sudmeier for the crazy design that brings a smile to one's face. I believe the theme is carried through the pages of the accompanying CD insert too. The CD features my piece Escape Velocity and that gives a particularly warm sense of privilege.

Congratulations to the band. I'm sure brass enthusiasts...

Netherlands - Day 3

Posted by Martin Cordner on Thursday, January 31, 2013, In : events & engagements 

Saturday 24 January - the busy day!

The day began with breakfast and then we moved into session 1. The ASB took time to rehearse for the forthcoming evening concert and there delegates divided up for sectional rehearsals. I was able to do some work with the cornet players. We looked at Stephen Bulla's Lift up your voice but most of the time was given to Ken Downie's tour de force Music of Thanksgiving.  Originally written for London Citadel Band, Canada, this piece is a fifteen minute workout ...

Staff Bands playing Escape Velocity

Escape Velocity was commissioned by the Amsterdam Staff Band early in 2011. With the permission of B/M Olaf Ritman I took it to Camp Ladore last summer, and since then the ISB and now NYSB have brought it into their repertoire. The picture above shows the NYSB rehearsing the piece on the impressive stage of the USA Eastern Territory's annual Commissioning celebration 9/10 June 2012. It's a thrill to know that B/M Waiksnoris has chosen to play the piece.

A few bands have be...

Escape Velocity: ISB premiere confirmed

Posted by Martin Cordner on Saturday, March 24, 2012, In : performances 


Had confirmation today that the ISB will feature my recent work Escape Velocity in the second half of tonight's programme at Morley Town Hall. This is exciting news for me and I'm disappointed I can't be there to hear it. If you're going tonight I'd love to hear your response. 

Quoting my earlier post:
"There's a strong gospel message within this piece; that though the pressures and values of the world seek to enslave us, the power of God shown in Christ affords us the opportunity to 'escape' i...

Escape Velocity on ISB radar

Posted by Martin Cordner on Wednesday, March 14, 2012, In : performances 



Friends within the ISB tell me that Escape Velocity was on the rehearsal room stands last week. I've now been asked for composer's remarks/score notes so it sounds as if it could be on the programme soon. I've been thrilled to know the ASB have been using the piece over the past year and would welcome news of an ISB performance if you get to hear one.

There's a strong gospel message within this piece; that though the pressures and values of the world seek to enslave us, the power of God shown ...

好久不见!

Posted by Martin Cordner on Thursday, January 26, 2012, In : site updates 
...or 'long time, no see!'

Hello folks and I welcome myself back to cordnermusic.com!

Our church at  Sydenham SA is on an exciting journey and as such keeps Leanne and myself occupied full time - Christian ministry is wonderful. When it's rest time we try to prioritise family as our two wonderful children continue to grow and develop. So my hobbies have been a little neglected; I've not been able to write music as often as I would like and as for the website... well, enough said. Anyhow that's ...

Catching up

Posted by Martin Cordner on Sunday, July 24, 2011, In : performances 
That's us home from a fantastic USA trip that took us to Manhattan, the Salvation Army's Camp Ladore near Waymart PA, Alexandria VA, Washington DC and the Army's Star Lake Camp near Bloomingdale NJ.

I'm just posting this to let you know I will be uploading Ladore Band's rendition of 'Escape Velocity' within the next few hours - probably to YouTube where it will be available to view for a few days.  I know some of you will be interested to hear this, not least Olaf and the ASB guys, plus the La...

Escape Velocity - world premiere

Posted by Martin Cordner on Wednesday, May 11, 2011, In : new music 
Friends in the Amsterdam Staff Band tell me that Escape Velocity may get its first outing at their partnership concert with the Canadian Staff Band early next month (you might want to Google translate that link!).  If it does feature, I'll see if a recording is available so that I can post a clip on this site.

New work heads to the ASB

Posted by Martin Cordner on Monday, April 11, 2011, In : new music 
I can't believe it...12 months after the request came in, I've finally managed to finish this work for the Amsterdam Staff Band!  It's called Escape Velocity and features the Hillsongs anthem 'His eye is on the Sparrow (I will run to you)' ...

And I will run to You,
To Your words of truth;
Not by might, not by power
But by the Spirit of God.
Yes, I will run the race,
Till I see Your face.
Oh, let me live in the glory of Your grace.

...as well as a reference to the old song 'Saved by Grace' - verse th...
