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

In this week’s programme, I’m looking forward to a return to more normal life, including live concerts. 

A welcome feature in any band concert is the arrival at the front of the stage of a soloist.

Sometimes a band member and sometimes a visitor but always playing in the knowledge that they, and their music will be the centre of attention for a few minutes.

Well this particular concert in the shape of my podcast, features both superstar soloists and marvellous players from the ranks playing music by William Himes, Joseph Haydn and Philip Wilby to name but three, and I’ve had the pleasure of conducting them all.

So join me for the best seat in the house in this week’s Music Podcast on Frank Renton on Brass, I’ll make sure to keep you a space."
