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...

Pieces scheduled for publication

Posted by Martin Cordner on Thursday, May 31, 2012, In : publication 

It's always brilliant to hear news of a piece that's going to be published. Recently I've been notified that Learn, Love & Live and Over Vale and Hill will be published in due course - great news.

This means that the following pieces are scheduled for publication in the UK journals but are therefore not available to bands from me:

Overture - Celebrate & Sing (Judd Street Collection, Sept 2012)
Written as the opener for the 2010 UK Gospel Arts concert and premiered by the ISB. Features the tunes ...

ASB recording of Fusion

Posted by Martin Cordner on Friday, March 2, 2012, In : performances 

I'm really grateful to Bandmaster Olaf Ritman and the ASB for playing some of my music in recent years. They recently performed Fusion and I've linked an ASB video to the page for you to hear. It seems that for some reason they had to undergo an entire horn section transplant (!), but aside from that and one or two loose ends they give a confident read of this challenging piece for brass band.

I hope your spirit is lifted as you listen!

Fusion publication & Pacific Coast

Posted by Martin Cordner on Tuesday, February 7, 2012, In : publication 

 
Just heard the good news that subject to the usual copyright checks etc, Fusion is scheduled for publication in the Judd Street Collection in September 2013.

I am unable to offer it to bands (though strangely some bands have it already...I don't know how for sure but it may have been released by the ISB or the UK music department?) but hopefully it will be a useful addition to the repertoire of bands around the world.

For your interest I've recently created a new page for my march Pacific Coas...

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 ...

ISB premiere of 'Fusion' announced

Posted by Martin Cordner on Friday, September 9, 2011, In : performances 

I've had some positive news regarding Fusion. The piece was actually written for the ISB and I mentioned in a previous post that Bandmaster Steve Cobb used it at the UK Salvation Army's Territorial Music School recently. He tells me he also used it in the USA at the Central Territory's Music Institute this summer - great stuff. Incidentally Bandmaster Peggy Thomas chose Lord of Sea and Sky to be played at CMI this year, too.

It's looking like Fusion will get its ISB premiere during their fir...

'Fusion' world premiere

Posted by Martin Cordner on Saturday, July 30, 2011, In : performances 
Just got news that Fusion was performed tonight (Sat 30 July 2011) by the A-band (Dr Stephen Cobb) at the UK's TMS (Territorial Music School) final festival.  I had submitted it to Steve for the ISB to look at some weeks ago but had not heard back regarding its suitability.  So this news is a pleasant, albeit unexpected surprise.  The life of a composer, eh?    

It's music camp season and I guess this is the time of year when composers are popular because bands like to play new music!  With Ba...

New work - Fusion

Posted by Martin Cordner on Wednesday, May 11, 2011, In : new music 
A tonsillectomy has kept me away from the website recently and although a little groggy still, I have been trying to finish pieces. In fact being off work is giving me a little more time to write than usual.

I'm making good progress on the opener for the London Central Fellowship Band (still untitled) - it's a 3-4 minute arrangement of 'We have a Gospel'.  It will be complete within the next week or so.

The one I've just finished though is an exciting 5 min opener called Fusion.  It combines o...
