William Perry's new suite for Ophicleide and Orch.
For those of you who only know Bill from his silent film accompaniments on piano, you should know that one of the things he's been up to over the last several years is creating new orchestral works based on his themes for movies in "The Silent Years". A CD of this music, Music for Great Films of the Silent Era was released in 2011, and there's a second one due out next year I believe. If you remember his themes from the piano scores, you'll love the CD of his orchestral arrangements.
Bill has created a new Suite for Ophicleide and Orchestra that was recorded this year for release on CD. It premiered this past October, and if you want to hear it (and see what the heck an ophicleide is), "Brass From the Past" has been posted on YouTube, from the premiere performance at Brown University.
Here it is. Enjoy!
