Kenneth Hesketh: Infernal Ride (Score)

Books | Brass Band

Publisher: Faber Music
Composer: Kenneth Hesketh
Format: Sheet Music | Score

Infernal Ride is mercurial and virtuosic, reflecting the mad-cap chase of Ichabod Crane’s final ride on his horse, Gunpowder, in the story by Washington Irving, namely The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. Often an atmosphere of driven fear pushes the music forward, only briefly stopping for breath. The work closes with flourishes in rapid succession, perhaps with the hapless Ichabod meeting his unfortunate end!

Brass Band Grade 5: 1st Section
