    Hello Everyone – it is nice to be back - here is the new show and playlist for 21 August...

    The photograph is Imogen Holst (1907-1984), the daughter of Gustav Holst. In 1966 she conducted the BMC (Oxford) Band in what was the first full length recording of her father's 'A Moorside Suite' since an abridged version was recorded in September 1928 by Black Dyke Mills Band on three sides of two 78 rpm recordings.

    She was so musically enthused by her father's composition for the 1928 National Finals she was inspired to write a piece for a full brass band titled 'The Unfortunate Traveller'. In 1930 she submitted it to the Royal College of Music and before she left college it was performed in a version written for a string orchestra.

    It was almost forgotten until her father was invited to Carlisle to take part in a concert. He and Imogen travelled to Carlisle where she was given the opportunity of conducting the Carlisle St. Stephen Band playing her new composition. Following that performance it was not publicly heard again until 2011 when Zone One Brass played it in Ulverston.


    Please remember the show is not on Facebook anymore following an unhappy experience I have had with it. If you know anyone that may like the show link sending to them direct please contact me on my e-mail you can also find it on Twitter as well.
