Train Ride from Winter Holiday

Sergei Prokofieff/trans. Howard Cable

 

Russian composer Sergei Prokofieff (1891-1953) was one of Russia's outstanding composers of the twentieth century. He listed the following as the four elements of his style: (1) classicism (neoclassicism); (2) innovation which at first was represented in an individual harmonic style, later as an expression of strong emotions; (3) the motoric element; and (4) lyricism. Much of his music, however, is flavored by a certain puckishness or humorous quality. This is evident in his composition Train Ride.

Howard Cable transcribed the original Prokofieff composition for concert band. Cable was associated with the Canadian Brass for over twenty years, writing many of the arrangements performed by the group.
