    'World of Brass' announce what is thought to be the world's first brass band DVD.
    Up to now, Highlights of the European Brass Band Championships have only ever been available on CD.
    This year, as well as the double CD, there will be a video and a DVD too.

    The Double CD is available now;

    The video and DVD are due out in September but you can order now from our Mail Order Department on 020 7367 6580.

    Too early to say exactly what will be on the DVD but expect plenty of the Saturday night gala concert. There were stunning performances by Stavanger Brass Band and the tuba soloist Oystein Baadsvik.

    Don't get me wrong - I think it's a great idea to have a DVD of the weekend - but I'm not going to place an order for something if I don't know what's to be included on it - I might well purchase it when it comes out if I like the content.

    Isn't it a bit late asking for ideas on what to put on it though? The weekend has passed! Wouldn't it be better off giving us an idea of what's been filmed - and which aspects of that we would like on the DVD?

    Just a thought.

    PS. If only someone did something similar with the Spennymoor contest.

    We had a team of 4 filming the events so we have plenty of material to work with.

    I am sure it must be very difficult selecting what to put on a recording of a live event. Sometimes, an item that is well received in the hall does not come over in the same way when presented just as an audio recording. Equally, a performance with a couple of blips, that you gloss over in a live performance, can grate if heard repeatedly on disc, to say nothing of the possible embarassment to any players concerned.

    Personally, I was a little disappointed in the choice of items from the post contest concert last year, which I had pre-ordered, so I shall be reluctant to do so again.

    I know its to late for this one, but maybe for next time, maybe extras could include - profiles of the bands on the DVD, actually showing the results read out, (to get the audience reaction) and maybe some interviews, conductors ADJUDICATORS etc.

    By the way having the contest filmed and on DVD is a brilliant idea. Hope more events can be recorded like this.

    The results anouncement is there, but I don't know yet about any reactions to it - my son is buying it for my birthday when we're at the Open!

    Picked up my copy in Birmingham on Saturday and I can certainly recommend this as an excellent purchase.

    The range of content is superb - interviews, test-piece performances, concert items - the whole package gives a great account of the weekend in my opinion. Highlights for me are YBS' performance of Concerto Grosso, the euph duet in Cory's Revelation, Martin Winter's Tanga and Oystein Baardsvik's rendition of Gabriel's Oboe. And for something completely different have a look at Stavanger's African Odyssey.

    Well done WorldofBrass - let's hope this is the first of many DVDs - I think it's just what the movement needs.

    Any chance of the same for Spennymoor? :wink:

    Many thanks for your endorsement of this product.
    Our next DVD will be from the Eric Ball Centenary Concert featuring Black Dyke and ISB. We hope to have this ready in time for Christmas.
