    Hello Brass Banders – Here is another scintillating two hours featuring some of the best brass bands and fine soloists.

    A treat this week is Derek Garside playing the best performance of Cleopatra by Damare in 1960 and he then joins Brian Cronshaw and Alan Holme in Don Jacoby’s Carnival Variations in 1962. These two pieces are a celebration for Derek’s birthday – he was 87 this week, so from brass banders around the world we send him our best wishes for his birthday.

    There is also a fabulous euphonium solo from Mark Glover. This is a performance straight out of the top draw.....

    This week the programme is being played across expatradio.com which is based in France. Expats from across the world tune into this station, so they will be joining us for the first time with this week’s show.



    Derek Garside - the finest cornet player of his generation. I have a concert programme for CWS (Manchester) Band MD: Alex Mortimer from the late 1950s. Interestingly the second item in the second half is Derek Garside playing that very famous Cleopatra cornet solo by Damare. On today's show Derek is featured playing that same solo. He is also one of the cornet trio I have featured playing Don Jacoby's cornet trio Carnival Variations. He is playing alongside Brian Cronshaw and Alan Holmes.

    These two tracks featuring Derek is by means of a celebration - this last week he celebrated his 87th birthday. Young players may be saying 'Derek who?' - An American cornet player of some note once asked me to locate a recording of Cleopatra played by Derek. As far as she was concerned his was the definitive performance.

    A 1960 recording of this solo is on today's show - and this is how it should be played... enjoy
