Sunday Bandstand weekly brass band programme 3 May 2020


Hello Brass Banders

Welcome to another two hours of music from the world of brass bands, from bands around the banding world. I have chosen a diverse range of music this week and I am sure you will find plenty to enjoy. As always if you have a request or question about the show please contact me by email Don't forget to check out my website and look at the online shop for some pre owned CDs I am selling.

Stephen Roberts was born in London and studied at the Royal College of Music with Alan Civil and composition at Birmingham University. He is a founder member of the FINE ARTS BRASS and has been responsible for many of the Ensemble’s musical arrangements. As well as playing the horn, he is also known as a composer and conductor and has written works for a variety of artists and orchestras, including recent symphonic works for the BBC Symphony Orchestra and English Symphony Orchestra.
He has also written many pieces for the brass band world including concert music and contest test pieces. He is on this week's show conducting the Desford Colliery Band with his own composition American Carnival. A piece that would certainly test the players but one they would certainly enjoy playing equally as much as the audience would enjoy listening to it.
