Sunday Bandstand weekly brass band programme 29 December 2019


Hello Brass Banders

Welcome to what is my last show of 2019. We have a good mix of seasonal music and some to take us into the new year.
2020 promises to be another good year for the show which is finding more and more listeners overseas. My website is where you can find every two hour show dating back to the summer of 2014. There is a search facility at the bottom of the Sunday Bandstand tab on the website. You can enter any piece of brass band music you wish (there is no need to enter any dates) and the facility will find it if it has been played on the show during that time. There are almost 6250 pieces of music - if you cannot find it email me and we will play it on a future show.

I will also be adding a new page to my website shop. This is where I will be selling off my duplicate and sometimes triplicate copies of brass band CDs (all original no copies) all at modest prices including the postage and packaging. I will be posting further news on that as soon as it is up and running.

Well, as always we have plenty of music to get through so on with the show.

Louis Joseph Ferdinand Hérold (28.01.1791 – 19.01.1833), was a French operatic composer who also wrote many pieces for the piano, orchestra, and the ballet. He is best known today for the ballet La fille mal gardée and the overture to the opera Zampa.

Louis J. F. Hérold was born in Paris, the only child of François-Joseph Hérold, a pianist, teacher, and composer, and Jeanne-Gabrielle Pascal. At the age of six, he attended the Hix Institute and excelled in his studies. While there, he also took musical theory, at the age of seven, he played the piano and composed some piano pieces.

His father did not intend for him to follow a musical career, but after his father's death in 1802, he could finally pursue this avenue. He enrolled in the Conservatoire in 1806 and was schooled in piano by Louis Adam (father of the composer Adolphe Adam) during these times at the Conservatoire became a virtuoso on piano and violin.

On May 3, 1831, one of his most famous operas, Zampa, premiered. This opera enjoyed much success in France and Germany where it is still occasionally staged today. He followed up his success with Zampa with contributions to La Marquise de Brinvilliers, a collaborative effort of many composers including François-Adrien Boïeldieu and Daniel Auber. Two names are well known in brass bands for their overtures.

Hérold died of tuberculosis which he had long suffered. Hérold's opera Ludovic, which had not been completed, was finished by Fromental Halévy.

Hérold was buried in Paris. The house at 10 rue Hérold is Hérold's birthplace. The street was named in his honour in 1881.

In this week’s show, we feature the Clog Dance from his ballet La Fille Mal Gardee.
