Bacchanale

John BloodGZ 031
16 Horns | Duration: 5½ minutes

As part of the Stratford upon Avon Festival Bacchanale was commissioned for the concert given by the Stratford Horn Convention in Holy Trinity Church on July the 14th. Conducted by Peter Chadwick and featuring various combinations of horns, the concert culminated in the extaordinarily exciting sound of 16 horns ranged in 4 quartets around the church. After a portentous introduction the baccanale soon gets into full swing with a riotous allegro full of stomping syncopation and meaty melodies.
