The Four Temperaments composed by Robert Simpson (1921-1997). For Brass Band. A symphony in all but name. Serious Concert. Advanced. Full Score. Standard Notation. Duration 22:00. Published by Winwood Music (WO.0032-SC).
With Standard Notation. Serious Concert.
The Four Temperaments was commissioned by the Yorkshire Imperial Band and first performed by them in 1983. The suite depicts the four traditional temperaments, as Nielsen had done in his second symphony: Sanguine, Phlegmatic, Melancholic, and Choleric, though each movement stands up as absolute music. The composer has said of The Four Temperaments: 'The Melancholic wants to be broad, warm and grand, without haste or hysteria. As for the rest, it should go like a bomb.' It does!
