Frank Renton: Still Listening to the Band - Ep 48

March 3, 2020

An episode full of original music for brass band some of it bringing together the best contemporary talents such as Lucy Pankhurst’s Concerto written for Owen Farr alongside music by the brass band’s most popular living composer Philip Sparke written for and played by Brett Baker. Frank reflects upon a piece from 1922 by film composer Hubert Bath, his Freedom Symphony No.1 written for the National Championships and follows that with the all to rarely heard Fantasy for Brass Band by another composer known, amongst other music, for his film scores Malcolm Arnold , also written for the National Championships. Great music all.
