Info for Graham: Metropolis 1927
Peter Graham is one of the leading brass band composers of his generation, and the first outside the US to win the American Bandmasters Associations prestigious Ostwald Award for composition. Black Dyke Band celebrates his 60th birthday with this recording, the theme of which derives from Grahams time in New York and from some of the giants of American culture. On the Shoulders of Giants pays tribute to great brass virtuosi such as Miles Davis and John Philip Sousa; New York Movie is a musical narrative on seven of Edward Hoppers iconic, haunting paintings; and Metropolis 1927 takes its inspiration from the dystopian beauty of Fritz Langs classic science fiction film.
