Postcard from Riddings, A (The Two Windmills)


Buy this product

This is very much a lively concert overture. Written to a commission from the Riddings Band, a pair of windmills... named 'Sarah and James' after the owner and his wife... were a notable landmark until burned down in suspicious circumstances and later demolished. Nothing more descriptive than rather circular musical motives connect these with the music. More in tune with the Shostakovitch Festival Overture or Bernstein's Candide Overture than the Derbyshire countryside!
