    Hello all,

    Diana Herak (Brass Band of Columbus), Helen Tyler (Fodens), Katrina Marzella (Leyland Band) and myself (YBS Band) have just released a baritone solo album entitled 'Baritones to the Fore!'. Nothing like this has ever been released before, and the CD contains many of the major works written for baritone over the last 10-15 years, including many new commissions. Our aim was to only feature previously un-recorded pieces, so everything heard is a completely fresh performance on the baritone.

    The track listing is as follows:
    (DH - Diana Herak, KM - Katrina Marzella, RR - Rob Richardson, HT - Helen Tyler)

    1. Concertino for Baritone (Roger Thorne) - 7:02 (RR)
    2. Deep Inside the Sacred Temple (Bizet arr. Wilkinson) - 3:22 (DH & HT)
    3. Hebredian Lullaby (Philip Harper) - 5:14 (KM)
    4. A Day in the Life of Pooh and Tigger (Lawrence) - 3:57 (DH)
    5. Rhapsody for Baritone: Don Quixote (John Golland) - 8:53 (RR)
    6. Horizon (Booth) - 6:02 (HT)
    7. Alu (Pete Meechan) - 3:59 (DH)
    8. Rhapsody for Baritone (Philip Sparke) - 7:52 (RR)
    9. Prelude No. 4 in C-minor (Bach arr. Piper) - 3:47 (KM)
    10. Slane (trad. arr. Baker) - 3:14 (HT)
    11. Mirror Lake - Movement 1: Serenade (Montgomery arr. Tubb ed. Droste) - 5:12 (DH)
    12. Mirror Lake - Movement 2: Festival (Montgomery arr. Tubb ed. Droste) - 2:30 (DH)
    13. A New Day (Andrea Crossley) - 3:54 (RR)
    14. By the Waterside (Faure trans. Wilson) - 2:17 (DH)
    15. Sun (Bruce Fraser) - 5:48 (KM)
    16. Baritunes (Leigh Baker) - 3:42 (RR & DH)

    The CD is available from myself at £13.50 inc. P&P, so let me know if you would like a copy, either by messaging me on here, emailing on or giving me a call on 07738114968. Any other questions just give me a shout!

    Cheers, Rob

    Just received my 'complimentary' CD Rob :tup

    Excellent playing from all the soloists and The Brass Band of Columbus. Well done to everyone involved in this fantastic project.

    Congratulations on the new CD, Rob. Apparently it took some time to record, because I remember Pat already telling about the project when I visited him and Diana in September 2006...

    It was truly an incredible collaboration of people who wanted to not only support brass bands, but new compositions and of course the baritone horn.

    The list of thank you's from Rob to Katrina to Helen to Diana, as well as all the composers with recent compositions, as well as the band, the brass band community in Columbus, etc.. has been astounding.

    Getting all the players, music, Ohio took a l good deal of work and I think produced not only a unique, but a quality product.

    Thanks for the efficient delivery Rob- my copy arrived in the post this morning! :)

    I'd highly recommend this CD, the solo playing is superb as is the band accompaniment- 'Baritunes' is a personal favorite! ;)

    Well done to all involved :)

    Rob, are all the pieces published and available for sale? I'm particularly interested in the Hebredian Lullaby by Philip Harper.

    I believe "Slane" is the only one that is not yet, but will be with Kirlees soon.

    Hebredian is available (publisher should be on the CD). I think I even saw it advertised last summer in BBW or BB?
