Frank Renton: Still Listening to the Band - Ep 39

October 29, 2019

Siddis is one of the great entertainment events in the band world.  With competitions in several sections over the weekend it’s a real test of a bands programme building ingenuity and technical skill. Frank features some winning performances and recalls some highlights of his times there.  He also dips into the latest recording by Black Dyke and guides us through one of the most popular test pieces of all-time pieces Philip Wilby’s Paganini Variations, a piece that he conducted to Open Championships victory with Grimethorpe.

The whole of the Siddis competition will be available to live stream on
