Festival of Brass Preparations

Posted by Mark Wilkinson on 21 January 2009

In preparation for the RNCM Festival of Brass on the 31st January Fodens & Garry Cutt have been busy rehearsing 'A World Within', the first piece to be written for the band by Fodens Composer in Residence, Andy Scott.  The new work is dedicated to Fodens President Peter Fletcher, who will be at the World Premiere.

The concert will also see the world premier of a Trumpet Concerto written by Peter Meechan (featuring Rex Richardson) as well as a Violin Concerto with band accompaniment by Bram Tovey.

The concert will be recorded by BBC radio and broadcast on a date to be notified.

For any conductor and every audience, Foden’s Band is a musical Magic Carpet. It continually takes the listener to places that few other ensembles rarely even approach Howard Snell
