See and hear the World Premiere performance of Nigel Clarke’s ‘Earthrise’, as performed at the European Brass Band Championship in Linz, Austria in 2010. Under the direction of Luc Vertommen, the band chose to perform Nigel’s newly-created piece in the ‘own-choice’ section of the contest. The piece was devised and composed specifically for this occasion but has proven popular and successful elsewhere, having been used as both a set test piece and own-choice option in national contests throughout Europe since its premiere.
Further information on this magnificent piece can be found on Nigel’s own website. We acknowledge and thank World of Brass for allowing us to make this video available. The complete DVD of the championships is available from www.worldofbrass.com.
Brass Band Buizingen offered a specially created souvenir poster to Nigel as recognition of his work in creating Earthrise and his outstanding collaboration in working with the band.
