I attended the Michel Legrand concert at the Bridgewater Hall last night. The man simply oozes musicianship and his compositions show tremendous melodic and rhythmic variety. Bearing in mind that he's composed in various styles, pop, jazz and classical, it set me wondering what we might have ended up with if he had ever written an original work for brass band. That then got me asking the question, "Who else would I have liked to see writing for brass band and what would the music have been like?" Not necessarily test pieces by the way. Three other Oscar-winning names from the film genre immediately spring to mind : John Williams John Barry Erich Korngold (1940's writer of such temes as Errol Flynn's 'Sea Hawk') Any other suggestions anyone?
