Sunday Bandstand weekly brass band programme 24 January 2021


Hello Brass Banders

Welcome to another two-hours of brass band music produced and presented by Chris Helme.

A good choice this week I am sure there will be something to enjoy by all our listeners.

A touch of sadness - some listeners may not yet be aware that one of the most highly respected brass banders has sadly passed away - James Scott, who was known throughout the brass band world.
Next week I will be featuring some of the music, contest performances both as a conductor and a player and a rare opportunity to hear just how good a cornet player he was until he put the cornet down to take up conducting in 1960.

Jan Willem van Otterloo (27.12. 1907 – 2.7.1978) was a Dutch conductor, cellist and composer. He was born in Gelderland, in the Netherlands, the son of William Frederik van Otterloo, a railway inspector, and his wife Anna Catharina. He qualified to study medicine at Utrecht University but switched to studying cello and composition at the Amsterdam Conservatoire. While playing as a cellist in the Utrecht Stedelijk Orkest, he won a composition prize from the Concertgebouw Orchestra for his Suite No. 3, which he presented in his 1932 conducting debut, also with that orchestra. He held posts with other orchestras in The Netherlands.

He spent his last 11 years in Australia. From 1967 to 1970 he was chief conductor of the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra and in 1971 he was appointed chief conductor of the Sydney Symphony Orchestra, where he remained for the rest of his life.

Particularly prized for his performances of 19th and 20th-century music, he made numerous commercial recordings, mostly with the Residentie Orkest and others.

He died in the Melbourne suburb of East St Kilda in 1978 from injuries suffered in an automobile accident. His body was flown to The Hague for cremation.

Van Otterloo was married and divorced four times in the Netherlands.

He composed three piece and we are featuring his 1944 work Serenade which has been arranged by Klaas van der Woude for brass bands.
