Brendan Ball performs 'Call to Arms' by Darren Fellows

We are pleased to present another premiere as we release the film of the last of our five winners in the ‘Say it in 60 seconds’ composition project. Congratulations to Darren Fellows composer of ‘Call to Arms’. The piece is played by trumpeter Brendan Ball who has done an outstanding job of interpreting and performing these new works.

Our thanks also go to film director Emma Tranter, filmmaker Jean Paul Caruana and AGM Digital Arts for the sound processing.

Director of Oxford Festival of the Arts, Dr Michelle Castelletti commented “This brings the first part of our project to an end.  What a marvellous journey of discovery of different soundworlds through different composers, all with their own particular style – a terrific addition to the contemporary repertoire for solo trumpet.  Watch this space as we develop this into a composition mentoring scheme for young composers.”
