Congratulations. You'll be famous yet!Roger Thorne said:In case any Baritone Players out there are interested, on Friday 31st October Black Dyke Band will be performing the premier of a new Baritone Solo entitled 'Concertino for Baritone' composed by yours truly.
If anyone is interested in attending the concert, Rob Richardson will be performing this 'premier' at Uppermill Civic Hall at 7.30 p.m.
Hope to see you all there!
Congrats Roger!4barsrest said:The most intriguing piece of the whole night was a World Premiere by baritone player, Robert Richardson. Solos for baritone are extremely rare, but ‘Concertino’ was commissioned from the pen of Roger Thorne for Robert. Lasting around nine minutes, it is in two movements (although continuos). The first nice and lyrical, delightful on the ear, whilst the second part is up-tempo and fast. Without question, Robert displayed what a great player he is, with fine full bloooded tone and congratulations should be given to Roger Thorne for the composition
I always felt that the baritone was a very underrated instrument, played well it has a lovely sound. Hopefully there will be a lot more written for it.Heather said:Sounds good, Roger!
Congrats from me too.
Abut time someone took the Baritone seriously
