Product Details


This seven-minute concert overture recalls the early days of the railways, and one of the most famous engines of all time, The Rocket. It was commissioned by the Director of the North Hertfordshire Wind Band, Phillip Ellis, who is the great-great-great-grandson of Stephenson, and depicts the Victorian carnival atmosphere on the day of the engine's inauguration. An ideal work for a good school or youth level band.
