Sunday Bandstand weekly brass band programme 14 April 2019


Hello Brass Banders

Here we are with another two hours of music from the world of brass band.

We have the third section UK National Finals test piece Viking Age written by French composer Thierry Deleruyelle and played by the Cory Band and we also have the second section test piece Occasion written by Edward Gregson played by Brighouse and Rastrick on the show as well. A couple of real testers in those two for this year's competing bands.

This will be my last new show for a few weeks. I am taking a break but will be back.... I have some writing to catch up on and a new local history magazine to finish setting up. On my website Sunday Bandstand archive section are shows dating back to the summer of 2014, so there are a lot of shows to catch up on. Keep an eye on my website which will indicate when I am back.

Enjoy the show.....

Thierry Deleruyelle is a French composer, conductor and percussionist who graduated from the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique de Paris (CNSM) where he was awarded prizes in percussion, harmony, counterpoint, fugue and forms, and diplomas in analysis and orchestration. He was also unanimously awarded postgraduate diplomas (DFS) in composition and percussion with distinction.

His compositions have allowed him to work with many renowned artists and for his work to be recorded on CD by orchestras in various countries. He has composed orchestral works (for symphony orchestra, wind and brass bands), chamber music and solo pieces. He won first prize at the international composition competitions of Saint-Amand-les-Eaux (France – 2005) and Haize Berriak (Spain – 2009).

A particular achievement is that he is the first French composer to have written the test piece for the 2016 European Brass Band Competition in the Championship division and, with his work Fraternity, the test piece for the 2017 British Open too. He is the winner the 4barsrest: "Test piece of the year 2016 and 2017" (Fraternity) and "2016 - Newcomer of the Year".

In his work as a conductor, he takes several groups under the baton by invitation as well as the Voltige Orchestra, of which he is one of founding members. They perform and record the new works written by famous composer (P. Sparke, T. Doss, J. and J. de Haan, O. M. Schwartz etc..) on CD for Hal Leonard MGB publications.

The home town of Voltige Orchestra is situated in the conservatory of Douai (France) where he teaches percussion.

This week we feature his piece ‘Viking Age’ played by the Cory Band MD: Philip Harper and is the 3rd section test piece for the 2019 National UK Brass Band finals.
