    Hello Everyone

    Here is the new show and play list for Sunday 30 October – having been away for a month normal service is now back up and running.

    Zdenek Fibich (21.12.1850 – 15.10.1900) was a Czech composer of classical music. He composed two string quartets, a piano trio, piano quartet and a quintet for piano, strings and winds), symphonic poems, three symphonies, at least seven operas , melodramas , liturgical music including a mass and a large cycle (almost 400 pieces, from the 1890s) of piano works called Moods, Impressions, Reminiscences and much more.

    He is far less known than Dvorak or Smetana - explained by the fact that he lived during the rise of Czech nationalism in the Habsburg Empire. Smetana and Dvorak gave themselves over to the national cause, consciously writing Czech music which the emerging nation strongly identified, Fibich’s position was more ambivalent.

    To the world of brass bands his 1893 piece of chamber music 'Poem in Db Major Op 41 No. 4' which he wrote for violin and piano is the one we know best. It is often described as 'wonderful and romantic'. This work is featured on today's show - enjoy

    Thankyou to Andre in Switzerland a regular listener to the show for many years. I asked if there were any new Christmas CD s coming out at your band and he has kindly sent me one. Not exactly a new one but a very interesting old one which will be featured during December. If anyone else has one they would like promoting in the run up to the festive season please let me know through my e-mail
