Banding anagram quiz

This time, we have famous bands, conductors, composers, soloists and National Championship top section test pieces (all past and present) given the word strangling treatment. In the hope that a few more will enter this time, I hope I've made things a little easier. By each anagram a code can be seen indicating whether the answer is B (band) C (conductor), CP (composer) S (soloist) and NTP (National test piece). In some cases, more than one code will apply!

Once you've solved them, the first letter of each correct answer, (in the case of a name of a person, the initial letter of their first name) when shuffled correctly, will spell out a well known brass band virtuoso.

Can I request (mentioning no names) that we don't have entrants pm-ing other potential entrants to say 'I've got most of them right' as it will discourage the 'victims' ;-) Ta. Please pm with your answers; deadline 4pm tomorrow.

Cheers and good luck
