In January 2021, using funding awarded by Arts Council England through the ‘Grants for the Arts’ programme, Foden’s Band commissioned five of its members to write three brass solos each. These solos are varied in difficulty, corresponding approximately to Grades 1-5 and, as part of the project funding, brass trio accompaniment videos were produced to allow players to play the pieces along with musicians from the band.

Brass Classics is of approximately Grade 5 standard.

Composed by the French writer Erik Satie, Grand Ritournelle is a short and playful work forms part of a larger suite for piano called 'La Belle Excentrique'.

Originally, Delibes composed the aria Flower Duet for Soprano and Mezzo Soprano as part of his 1883 opera 'Lakme'. This particular song is performed by the lead character as she and her father collect flowers by the river.

A piece which will be instantly recognisable, if not by the title! Mozart's Rondo Alla Turca or 'Turkish Rondo' is one of his most well-known works and has been performed by and arranged for countless musical genres and ensembles.
