This work is made up of eight short movements and was originally scored for brass quintet, being commissioned by the Three Choirs Festival in 1989 for performance by the London Gabrieli Ensemble. This version (with some additions to the second movement only) was made in 2000 for a commercial recording by the Royal Ballet Sinfonia conducted by Gavin Sutherland. The title “Diversions” is important in that the movements are more musings than variations on the famous theme. The movements are: Introduction & theme; In pieces; Toccata; Chaconne; Cortege; Popular song; Five-a-side; Epilogue.
Duration: 13 minutes
A PACK comprises one full score, string parts 4/4/3/4/2 and any wind, brass and percussion parts.
