Hello Brass Banders

Welcome to this week's Sunday Bandstand radio show - two-hours of brass band music from some of the best bands in the banding world and some great soloists straight out of the top drawer.

Enjoy the show....


Julianus Marie August De Boeck (May 9, 1865 in Merchtem, Belgium – October 9, 1937 in Merchtem) was a Flemish composer, organist, and music pedagogue. He was the son of organist and director Florentinus (Flor) De Boeck (1826-1892). From 1880 he studied organ at the Royal Conservatory of Brussels under Alphonse Mailly, whose assistant he became until 1902. In 1889 he met the young Paul Gilson who became a close friend and, despite being the same age, his teacher for orchestration. Gilson encouraged De Boeck's composition work.

He became an organist at various churches in Belgian villages (1892-1894 in Merchtem, 1894-1920 in Elsene). His academic career continued in 1907 as professor of harmony at the Royal Conservatory of Antwerp (1909–1920) and the Brussels Conservatory, and as director of the Conservatory of Mechelen (1921–1930). In 1930 August De Boeck retired to his birthplace, Merchtem.

As with Gilson, De Boeck's style was influenced by the Russian Five, and especially Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov. Along with Gilson, he introduced impressionist composition in Belgium. He wrote about 400 compositions including vocal work, operas, religious pieces, and instrumental compositions.

In 1934 he was made a Commander in the Order of Leopold and was a Member of the Royal Academy of Science, Letters and Fine Arts of Belgium.

For the first time we are featuring one of his compositions on Sunday Bandstand.
