Frank Renton: Still Listening to the Band - Ep 37

October 4, 2019

Frank thinks that Wilfred Heaton is one of the most innovative and exciting writers for brass band of the last century, and can’t think why his brilliance was not recognised and nurtured at the time.  He even signed one of his masterpieces in the name of Paul Krask; it was never performed. Hear how Howard Snell brought Heaton’s wonderful Partita for band to its rightful place in the banding repertoire.  We also have an early warning of ghosts and spooks and take this opportunity to celebrate the conferring by Huddersfield University of an Honorary Doctorate of Music on one of our greatest cornet players and educators; Philip McCann.
