Arthur Butterworth (1923-2014) wrote over one hundred and fifty compositions including seven symphonies, chamber and instrumental pieces and a significant body of work for brass band. Many of his scores were inspired by the Yorkshire moorlands near his home in Skipton, North Yorkshire. His experience playing second trumpet in the Halle Orchestra under Sir John Barbirolli helped to make him an intensely practical musician. Most of his pieces were commissioned by soloists or performing bodies confident he would provide something idiomatic and challenging. This book offers a starting-point for an exploration of Arthur Butterworth's music. If the reader is thereby encouraged to explore further, it will have served it's purpose.
