Today’s programme focuses on brass instruments, with genres that range from Early Music to contemporary pieces.

Thus the genres range from ancient and early music, through Baroque and classical, to Victorian brass bands, to ragtime, trad jazz, a touch of big band, right up to modern works including a marvellous suite of pieces for wind band inspired by the works of Shakespeare.

This will all lead to some remarkable juxtapositions — and a few surprises.
