4th Movement Sonata in C major Opus 24 Weber

Category E - Excellent performance with commendable artistic and technical control

2nd place

This was a such a stylish and virtuosio performance, full of colour and with great articulation.
You have a real understanding for the orchestral textures and I always felt that I was listening to fifty players!
(Accompanying figures were sometimes a little lightweight - so something to consider)

Bravo!

So we never forget.

Ethan's entry to the RNIB World War One Centenary Composition Competition. He played the 5 parts individually on Catherine's digital piano and she converted it into 5 scores. We then ran these scores back through the voice generator to produce the 4 voices (Soprano Alto Tenor Bass) and added the digital piano score back in. Many thanks to Catherine who spent a lot of time doing the arrangements.

The composer in Verse 3 is Enrique Granados,

Verse 1:
The stories of the war
all the world’s pain and suffering

Chorus:
Remember them, honour them, think of them, so we never forget (repeat)
1914 war! 1914 war!
Remember them, honour them, think of them, so we never forget

Verse 2:
They fight over the sea
Their trenches filled with rain
At home people starve
Food in scarce supply
You and old the same
Europe groans in pain


Chorus:
Remember them, honour them, think of them, so we never forget (repeat)
1914 war! 1914 war!
Remember them, honour them, think of them, so we never forget

Verse 3:
Composer sailing with his dear wife
On their way home
Sunk at sea
Never to come home
Never a new song
Just another life lost to war

Chorus:
Remember them, honour them, think of them, so we never forget (repeat)

Verse 4:
The war ends
Peace has come
Now to rebuild
All we lost

Finale:
Remember them, honour them, think of them, so we never forget
Never forget
Never, never...forget
