RNCM Festival of Brass
20th December 2004
Seven leading brass bands are taking part over the festival, including the RNCM's own brass band, the International Staff Band of the Salvation Army, and the Black Dyke Band. A succession of renowned conductors will direct, from James Gourlay, Robert Childs and Bramwell Tovey to composers Howarth and Gregson themselves.
Classics from the brass band repertoire such as McCabe's Cloudcatcher Fells and Gregson's Tuba Concerto (recently recorded once again, and named British Bandsman's CD of the Year 2004) stand out from what promises to be an outstanding weekend of the best of brass band music.
