A bit early (not til early feb) but thought I'd get the ball rolling now that most details are out.. Test piece for the elitedivisjon (championship section) is 'Sketches from Nowhere' by Thomas Doss. (His first work for brass band, his second will be the test piece for the 2010 Europeans.) As it's going to be all open adjudication this year we can also give full info on the own choice section. So here's all the runners, with conductors and own choice selection. Eikanger-Bjørsvik Musikklag, Nick Childs Titan's Progress, Hermann Pallhuber Ila Brass Band, Thomas Rimul The Trumpets of the Angels, Edward Gregson Krohnengen Brass Band, Gary Peterson Montreux Wind Dances, Carl Rütti Manger Musikklag, Peter Szilvay Dove Descending, Philip Wilby Molde Brass Band, Russel Gray From Ancient Times, Jan van der Roost Oslo Brass Band, Frode Amundsen Seid - versjon B, Torstein Aagaard-Nilsen Oslofjord Brass, Simon Dobson Sounds, John Golland Sola Brass Band, Selmer Simonsen Music of the Spheres, Philip Sparke Stavanger Brass Band, Allan Withington Masquerade, Philip Wilby Tertnes Brass, John Philip Hannevik Prague, Judith Bingham I'm assuming that, as last year, we will have at least video coverage of the top two sections, and interviews and commentaries for the norwegian speakers Game on, should be a good'un.
