Originally commissioned as the set test piece for Section B of the 2007 European Brass Band Championships, The Drop was re-worked and extended as The Drop: Remixed for Leyland Band to perform at the 2008 RNCM Festival of Brass in Manchester. Ideal as a First Section brass band test piece, The Drop: Remixed contains much tuneful and dance-based music and finishes with a massive drum ‘n ‘bass-inspired ending.
Brass Band Grade 5: 1st Section
Duration: 12 minutes
The work has subsequently been recorded by the Leyland Band, conducted by Jason Katsikaris, an is on the CD entitled Penlee.
