Sunday Bandstand weekly brass band programme 23 February 2020


Hello Brass Banders

It is good to be back after two weeks off working at home. We have a number of new bands on the show this week and this trend is to continue. Some listeners may be familiar with Dr Jim Fox, he for many years has a All Brass Radio station in the US. He played for many years 24/7 365 days a year brass band music. Sadly, Jim has decided to retire and his station has now closed down. I was very pleased when Jim sold me all his CDs which he has used on the show. These have now been shipped over (hundreds of them) and this week we are playing just a few as a taster of what is to come in future weeks.

Frank Bernaerts (b: 28.02.1967 in Willebroek , Belgium ) is a Belgian composer , conductor and musician .

At the age of eight he began his music studies at the Municipal Music Academy in Willebroek in the subjects of sheet music, music history and piano. Studies for cornet were with Frans Violet and piano with Christa Steenhuyse-Vandevelde and William Peeters followed. He also played in the Brass Band Willebroek since its foundation in 1979 to 1986. There he continued his education, and his newly composed works were first performed by the band.

In 1981, he studied privately with Jan Seger's harmony theory and then in 1985 he started studying music at the Conservatory in Mechelen , Belgium. In 1986, he moved to the music education department at the Lemmens Institute in Leuven , where he studied composition , harmony and music theory. In the same year he won the international composition competition Flores luventutis in Ghent, with the wind orchestral work Dreaming . After completing his studies, he founded his own music publisher Bernaerts Music , in which he published numerous arrangements of popular works for wind orchestra. He also uses the pseudonym of Jan van Kraeyonck.
