Description

The Price of Feeling is a phrase coined by the author Matt Haig who writes knowledgeably about anxiety, depression and stress in modern society. We all know people who suffer from these things and the music takes us from feelings of slight anxiety through rising panic and stress until a fanfare signals a heroic effort resulting in a slightly overly energetic high. This gives way to a feeling of acceptance which, although the situation is never cured it ends with a feeling that the battle might be won but the war isn't yet over.

Keiron Anderson studied at the Royal Northern College of Music with Philip Jones OBE at a time when the Philip Jones Brass Ensemble was established as a real force in brass chamber music. He was fascinated by the methods used by Philip Jones to achieve the unique and sophisticated blend of the instruments and players and how to apply the techniques to other same-family instrumental groups. At the RNCM, Keiron experienced a wide range of musical styles including founding the college Big Band and Light Orchestra which involved arranging film music and jazz classics. After graduating, Keiron worked as a freelance trumpet player with many orchestras around the UK including the soon to be disbanded BBC Northern Radio Orchestra. He then spent several years with his own group as a Musical Director for Cunard Line before returning to the UK to compose, conduct and teach music. He now conducts the acclaimed Harlequin Brass Ensemble, Yorkshire Wind Orchestra, Nottingham Symphonic Winds, Phoenix Concert Band and works with many ensembles around the country. He has written music in a vast array of styles for Wind Orchestra, Brass Band, Clarinet Choir, Flute Ensemble, Brass Dectet, Saxophone Groups and String Orchestra as well as several musicals and vocal works.

“This intriguing "water-borne" voyage runs the gamut from more classically-tinged interpretations to straight-ahead and improvised jazz. Along that journey we are treated to a highly inspired and masterfully presented performance.”
