Sounding Brass!

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

The music today ranges from ancient and ear­ly music, through Baroque and clas­si­cal, to Vic­to­ri­an and mil­i­tary 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.
