Frank Renton: Still Listening to the Band - Ep 48
An episode full of original music for brass band some of it bringing together the best contemporary talents such as Lucy Pankhurst’s Concerto written for Owen Farr alongside music by the brass band’s most popular living composer Philip Sparke written for and played by Brett Baker. Frank reflects upon a piece from 1922 by film composer Hubert Bath, his Freedom Symphony No.1 written for the National Championships and follows that with the all to rarely heard Fantasy for Brass Band by another composer known, amongst other music, for his film scores Malcolm Arnold , also written for the National Championships. Great music all.
Frank Renton: Still Listening to the Band - Ep 47
With the recent passing of Hollywood legend Kirk Douglas at the amazing age of 103 we’ve come to the end of that bit of movie history. Frank thought we’d have our own trip down memory lane now with some of the great songs from the golden age of the Hollywood Musical played in some very special arrangements. We hear the truly great playing of Rod Franks, a double tracked tuba and the current Young Brass Award Winner Siobhan Bates. And so it’s time to get on your trolley, take tea for two and start facing the music and dancing to name but 3 of these brilliant featured arrangements.
