The Wilfred Heaton Edition

Wilfred Heaton composed his Variations on Annie Laurie in the 1930s, originally for cornet and piano. He was an admirer of the music of Erik Leidzen and the influence of the Swedish-American composer can be detected in the easy flow of the music. Heaton subsequently made three versions of the work with brass band accompaniment. This edition is based on the final version, which was prepared for Howard Snell.

After a dramatic opening, the music takes the soloist on a white-knuckle ride of virtuosity in three contraasting variations.
