    Hello Brass Banders

    Welcome to this week’s show – another two hours of some wonderful brass band music from some of the best bands and some truly fabulous soloists.

    I am pleased to announce that my website is now up and running. It has been live for two weeks and whilst there are still many things to add to it you can take a look at it.

    There are archived shows and playlists dating back to August 2014. You will find reviews and the track lists of a number of the latest and most popular CDs. I have also included some brass band memories – with at least one special track from 1959 and the adjudicators remarks for the winning band. This is a contest and performance that is still talked about today in the bars and tea rooms of the UK contests – check it out. Website Address:

    Derek Bourgeois (16.10 1941– 6.9. 2017) was an English composer. After receiving his university education at Magdalene College, Cambridge he spent 2 years at the Royal College of Music, studying composition with Herbert Howells and conducting with Sir Adrian Boult.
    From 1971 / 84, a lecturer in music at Bristol University, in 1980 he began conducting the Sun Life Band of Bristol, which was his introduction to brass bands.
    In 2002 he and his wife settled in Mallorca. Following her death in 2006, he remarried in 2008 and moved to New York City, but returned to the UK in 2009. He has also conducted for various orchestras. He has also been a member of the Music Advisory Panel of the Arts Council.
    He was a prolific composer for brass bands. His works include two Concerti for Brass Band, the Concerto Grosso, Blitz, Diversions, Serenade, The Devil and the Deep Blue Sea, and Apocalypse. He has also played the tuba.

    Sadly, Derek's death was circulated in the band press this week.
