A superb arrangement for Brass Ensemble (10) of a timeless classic. Skill is required in this piece to maintain tone quality and a steady even pace throughout the expansive Wagnerian melodies.
This piece is one seamless musical gesture, and performers must shape flowing melodies and counter-melodies while retaining proper ensemble balance.
Patience and restraint are needed when allowing the music to build logically and cohesively to its magnificent climax. A demanding concert piece.
Elsa’s Procession to the Cathedral, with its medieval colour and pageantry, prefaces her betrothal to Lohengrin, mystic Knight of the Holy Grail, who comes to deliver the people of (Antwerp) from the Hungarian invaders.
The soundtrack is played by the Prince of Wales Brass, formed from members of the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra
