The God Particle - Rolf Rudin

The test piece for the Championship section is entitled “The God Particle” by Rolf Rudin, a piece part-inspired by the search for the so-called “God Particle” that led to the construction of the Large Hadron Collider at CERN in Switzerland and the recent discovery of the Higgs-Boson particle.

Origenes - Carlos Cardenas

Bands in the Challenge Section will perform "Origines" (sub-titled Ursprünge/Provenance) by Carlos Cardenas, a work that owes much to the composer’s roots in South America and utilises a range of Latin rhythms and extensive percussive effects.


Bands in the Premier Section of the European Youth Brass Band Contest will perform "Arcana" by Belgian composer Kevin Houben. This ten-minute piece was the first prize winner at EBBA's European Composers Competition in 2006. The test-piece for the Development Section is "Patterns" by Edward Gregson, a six-minute piece originally commissioned for the National Youth Brass Band Championships of Great Britain in 1974.
