    The rise of the freelance professional

    This thread has been removed following its deterioration into a slanging match. What could have been a worthwhile discussion in general terms has become a witch-hunt which is not what tMP was ever intended to be. I apologise to members for not having spotted these developments until now.

    George Hicks

    I'm sure tMPers will be sorry to hear of the passing this afternoon of George Hicks, grandfather of regular poster Chris, and father to two excellent euphonium players in Andrew and Paul. He and I spent some time as the BBb section in Hadleigh Temple Band, and I know he was involved with many...

    2011 BBC Proms

    I've just been looking through this year's Proms brochure, and yet again there is a distinct lack of representation of brass - and woodwind for that matter. As far as I can see there are no featured ensembles and only one brass soloist, Philippe Schartz in an interesting-looking double concerto...

    Maurice Bale

    I'm sure you will be sorry to hear that my dad passed away peacefully in his sleep at 6.30 this morning. He had a fall nine weeks ago, and had been in hospital ever since. His music started in the Salvation Army at Branksome where, although primarily a trombonist, he found himself on solo...
