"Hello I’m Frank Renton introducing this week's music podcast.

We feature three great soloists, Lode Violet and Kevin van Giel with Brass Band Willebroek on their joint album Rise and the incredible Allan Vizzutti on the Bullet Train.

Black Dyke play the very challenging Challenging Brass by Gilbert Vinter, Fodens play original music by Andy Scott, Grimethorpe romp through Fucik’s Florentiner March as only Grimethorpe can, and Desford under James Watson give us a quite sublime reading of the Arioso by Handel.

Finally the Brass Band of Central Florida play excerpts from Music of the Spheres by Philip Sparke, with which they so nearly made history at Sage Gateshead in 2011.

Fabulous music from fabulous players, as ever in our Music Podcast."
