There's a good review of the Black Dyke concert on 4barsrest: http://www.4barsrest.com/reviews/concerts/con089.asp
But, of particular interest to all tMPers is the following paragraph:

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
Congrats Roger!

Sounds good, Roger!
Congrats from me too.
Abut time someone took the Baritone seriously :)
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.
