Maxwell Davies Swinton Jig (Mini Score)

Books | Orchestra

Catalogue No: CH63723
Format: Sheet Music | Score
Peter Maxwell Davies’ Swinton Jig was inspired by his youth spent in Salford. These variations on a traditional melody portray the community spirit during wartime and the impromptu concerts and dances held within the air shelters. The instrumentation reflects this, with banjos, bells, bones and horns, and even an out of tune upright piano! This work was commissioned by the BBC and first performed in November 1998 by the BBC Philharmonic. In miniature pocket score format.
