Sunday Bandstand weekly brass band programme 11 September 2022


Hello Brass Banders

Welcome to another two-hour programme of brass band music from Sunday Bandstand.

Félix-Alexandre Guilmant b: 12 March 1837 – d: 29 March 1911 was a French organist and composer . He was the organist of La Trinity from 1871 until 1901. A noted teacher, performer, and improviser, Guilmant helped found the Schola Cantorum de Paris . He was appointed as Professor of Organ at the Paris Conservatoire in 1896.

He was an accomplished and extremely prolific composer and devoted himself almost entirely to works for his own instrument, the organ.

Though few in number, his works for instruments besides the organ have not been entirely neglected. For example, the Morceau Symphonique (Concert piece for Trombone) is one of the most frequently performed trombone solos, enjoying longstanding popularity among both professional and advanced student trombonists.

We are featuring this piece arranged by Ray Steadman-Allan on this week’s show.
