    Norwegian Brass Band Championships 2010

    A bit early (not til early feb) but thought I'd get the ball rolling now that most details are out..


    Test piece for the elitedivisjon (championship section) is 'Sketches from Nowhere' by Thomas Doss.

    (His first work for brass band, his second will be the test piece for the 2010 Europeans.)


    As it's going to be all open adjudication this year we can also give full info on the own choice section.
    So here's all the runners, with conductors and own choice selection.

    Eikanger-Bjørsvik Musikklag, Nick Childs
    Titan's Progress, Hermann Pallhuber

    Ila Brass Band, Thomas Rimul
    The Trumpets of the Angels, Edward Gregson

    Krohnengen Brass Band, Gary Peterson
    Montreux Wind Dances, Carl Rütti

    Manger Musikklag, Peter Szilvay
    Dove Descending, Philip Wilby

    Molde Brass Band, Russel Gray
    From Ancient Times, Jan van der Roost

    Oslo Brass Band, Frode Amundsen
    Seid - versjon B, Torstein Aagaard-Nilsen

    Oslofjord Brass, Simon Dobson
    Sounds, John Golland

    Sola Brass Band, Selmer Simonsen
    Music of the Spheres, Philip Sparke

    Stavanger Brass Band, Allan Withington
    Masquerade, Philip Wilby

    Tertnes Brass, John Philip Hannevik
    Prague, Judith Bingham


    I'm assuming that, as last year, we will have at least video coverage of the top two sections, and interviews and commentaries for the norwegian speakers

    Game on, should be a good'un.

    Suspect so, they are more likely to go further down that line than back away from it.
    Reckon it will still probably be only Championship and 1st sections though.

    Apparently it's not happening this year, which is a bit ****!
    The date clashes with the Melodi Grand Prix (Norways version of the eurovision qualifier, 'song for england' or whatever it's called?) and NRK (Norway's BBC) have to prioritise the cameras for that.

    People are looking into ways of getting some kind of amateur coverage up and running though i think, even if it's just a load of youtube uploads or something.

    The Norwegian BB Championship's always produce a high quality collection of test pieces. Makes it always worthwhilke buy the cd after the event. If they are going to stream this contest online, be well worth it! Why can't the major contest in this country, be so forward looking as this contest?

    Bad priority, NRK.
    We should make a Facebook-group so NRK changed their mind.
