oh just changed over to "By the way" by the chilli peppers. I suppose I'm letting the side down, I'll look in the dusty section of my CD collection and I'll try and find something that resembles brass band music. :roll:

Listening to Radio 3 online. There is some fantastic music on Late Junction which I can catch during the day via www.bbc.co.uk since I nearly always miss the live broadcast.

I've also got the first edited master of our new Christmas CD which I must check today. But I'll do that when there's no one around!

Cheers

Whatever my mp3 jukebox throws out really. :)

Although I've been listening to the Evanescence album quite a bit as I'm going to see them in a few weeks (yay!) :P

Also the Darkness and the odd bit of Muse/Radiohead/U2. 8)

Brass-wise the Regionals CD and Sheona Whites solo album, you can never tire of hearing Piper O Dundee! :)

Second that! I havent been for 4 years and think I'm gettin a bit old to do it again now :cry: Recommend it as a student/year out holiday, you'll get more drunk than youve ever been and have a wicked time in the water parks, then theres the clubs which are some of the best in the world!

I've 'evolved' from dance now onto Nu-Rock or whatever it's called!

Over the last 2-3 days, I have been listening to:

1) Firebird - Grimethorpe LP from 1982 re-issued on CD. Very interesting to listen to after reading Peter Roberts' autobiography. Scary to think that it is over 20 years old!

2) The Enigma Variations - recent recording from the Halle orchestra, conducted by Mark Elder - ready for October. Also includes Chanson de Matin, Serenade for Strings, Cockaigne overture, and the world premier recording of Elgar's original ending of the Enigma Variations (played as a separate item). I should think EB arranged Elgar's extended second ending, rather than the original.

3) Corpus Christie - latest CD from Hendon SA band

4) New Frontier - latest CD from Bristol Easton SA band, in connection with their North American tour earlier this year. A good recording, which deserves to have been given greater prominence by "World of Brass" and SP&S Ltd (in my opinion)

5) Bass Hits - a recording by 4 of the best US bass trombone players of music for bass trombone by Eric Ewazan. A bit of heaven on earth! :D

I listen to too many brass CD's to mention! Mostly Euphonium soloists, such as Steven Mead (listening to them 24/7!), Derick Kane, David Childs, Childs Bro's etc. They're all great! :wink:

PeterBale
10.10.2003, 10:01
Put on the radio once I got into work, as I usually do to catch the 7.30 news, and then listened to the orchestral version of "Les Preludes" - a favourite of mine ever since the Rimmer arrangement was one of the first pieces I played after moving onto bass trombone.

Now it is Cory's "Diadem of Gold", with the winning performance of "Ceremony" and a stunning trombone concerto by Gareth Wood.

To get back on topic ( :!: ), I'm listening to "Prime Meridian", by the Meridian Arts Ensemble - basically a brass quintet, but with added percussion, sax and guitar on some tracks, and a very eclectic programme, including tracks by Stravinsky, Frank Zappa, Kenny Wheeler and Captain Beefheart. :shock: :lol: :lol:

PeterBale
15.10.2003, 15:27
Norman del Mar was a noted conductor, particularly in the Romantic repertoire - Richard Strauss etc - who started out as a french horn player, which is probably why you've entirely blocked him from your memory :wink: :lol: :lol:

Today i have been mostley listening to Indian music.

Ive moved into a new office and the girl in the office next door is Indian.
I thought she mite be fed up of listening to brass bands all day and asked if she wanted to bring any of her own cds in. She did today and weve had it on all day. It was surprisingly easy to listen to!!

I am currently listening to Kenneth Downie's 'Music for The Common Man'.
I stumbled on this by accident on my Regionals 2000 CD (I think this was 1st Section piece then ???). I think its absolutely stunning. Then followed directly (v. loudly) by Variations on an Enigma!!!!!!
