Sounding Brass

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.

In addi­tion, don’t miss the lat­est install­ment of “Where’ve You Been?”, which this time vis­its the Limon­cel­lo Art Gallery — in an air­ship! Noon and 4pm Pacif­ic, 8pm and mid­night UK time, and Engines of Our Inge­nu­ity, every 4 hours from 4am Pacific.
