Posted by Mark Wilkinson on 1 June 2012

Fodens have released what they believe is the first brass band downloadable cd on itunes. The tracks for the cd have kindly been provided to Fodens from World of Brass
The first volume of Foden's Band 'Live' features five of the bands outstanding performances from the British Open and National Brass Band Championships of Great Britain. The CD features the runners up performances from the National Brass Band Championships of 'Albion' by Jan Van der Roost (2001), 'Music for Battle Creek' by Philip Sparke (2007), 'Concerto No.1 for Brass Band' by Kenneth Downie (2008) and the stunning rendition of 'The Torchbearer' by Peter Graham (2009). The most requested track on this download only CD is the winning performance of Wilfred Heaton's 'Contest Music' from the 2004 British Open Brass Band Championships.
The cd can be purchased via itunes where you can re live the contest day excitement!!!
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
