Sunday Bandstand weekly brass band programme 5 April 2020


Hello Brass Banders

I hope you are all managing to keep isolated and busy during these very difficult times. I have been catching up on all those jobs at home I tend to always put off until tomorrow but tends never to happen, another job to put off yet again. The latest job is to catalogue all my brass band CDs, LPs, 45s, 78s, cassette tapes and even some very old reel to reel tapes. This is a job I have threatened to do for years but tomorrow has finally arrived, so far I have the first 100 CDs done. I think at this rate this job will take a least a week to catalogue over 40,000 tracks which include duplicates. The duplicates and triplicates I am gradually putting on to my website online shop.

My message this week is keep well, keep busy and keep up the isolation.

Vittorio Monti (6 January 1868 – 20 June 1922) was an Italian composer, violinist, mandolinist and conductor. He was born in Naples, where he studied violin and composition at the Conservatorio di San Pietro a Majella. Around 1900 he received an assignment as the conductor for the Lamoureux Orchestra in Paris, where he wrote several ballets and operettas,

His most famous work is his Czardas, A concert piece written in 1904, it is a well-known folkloric piece based on a Hungarian czardas. It was originally composed for violin, mandolin or piano. There are arrangements for orchestra and for a number of solo instruments, including the tenor horn which we are featuring on this week’s show with Owen Farr as the soloist. The duration of the piece is about four and a half minutes.
