    Hello Brass Banders

    Welcome to another two hours of wonderful brass band music. As usual we feature a number of overseas bands and some top draw soloists.



    Franz von Suppé (18.4.1819 – 21.5.1895) an Austrian composer of light operas from the Kingdom of Dalmatia, Austro-Hungarian Empire (now part of Croatia). A composer and conductor of the Romantic period, he is notable for his four dozen operettas.
    His parents named him Francesco Ezechiele Ermenegildo Cavaliere di Suppé-Demelli born in Spalato, now Split, Dalmatia, Austrian Empire. His Belgian ancestors emigrated there in the 18th century. He was a distant relative of Gaetano Donizetti. He spent his childhood in Zara, now Zadar, where he had his first music lessons and began to compose at an early age. He was helped by a local bandmaster and the cathedral choirmaster. As a teenager Suppé studied flute and harmony. His first composition is a Roman Catholic mass, premiered in 1832. At the age of 16 he studied law also but continued to study music.

    The brass band world recognises him for his popular overtures and we have one of those on this week's show - enjoy
