Global Variations


Commissioned by the National Children's Wind Orchestra of Great Britain.

Around the world in just over eight minutes!

Although commissioned for a Youth Band, no concessions are made here for lack of technical ability, particularly in the percussion department. The chimes of Big Ben herald the start of a whistle-stop global journey, calling in turn at France, Spain, South Africa, Egypt, Russia, India, China, Australia, South America, and the USA, with a final detour through Ireland and Scotland before hearing Big Ben once more as we arrive home!
