Sunday Bandstand weekly brass band programme 21 February 2021


Hello Brass Banders

Here we have another great show of music from the world of brass bands.

Louis-Gaston Ganne - 5 April 1862 – 13/14 July 1923, was a conductor and composer of French operas, operettas, ballets, and marches.

Ganne was born in the Auvergne region of France and grew up in a suburb of Paris. He studied under César Franck and Jules Massenet at the Conservatoire de Paris. He conducted at the Nouveau Théâtre de la Rue Blanche and at the Folies-Bergère, and later led a concert series at the Monte Carlo Casino.

He is recognised today for his popular patriotic marches, Le Pere la Victoire and La marche Lorraine. He also composed for the ballet, including the 1902 ballet "In Japan". He is less well known outside his native France, and his many operettas are now rarely performed. His most successful light opera is the circus musical Les Saltimbanques (The Acrobats), from 1899.

During his lifetime was regarded as one of the leading composers of lighter music in France. He had scarcely left the Conservatoire when he started to make a name for himself as the composer of marches, waltzes and mazurkas. For many years he was in charge of music at the Monte Carlo Casino, where he directed a very popular concert series, Les Concerts de Louis Ganne. He is remembered most for his Marche Lorraine (1892), using an old folk-song from the district. During the Second World War, this march had a special significance as a battle song for the Free French and their allies.

Today we are featuring March Lorraine which is still a popular march on the brass band concert circuits. Our performance is from the Morris Concert Band conducted by Harry Mortimer in 1970.
