"In this week’s Music Podcast, I’ve some early memories of playing in a brass quintet, prompted by a little gem of a piece from Joseph Horovitz.

I’ve got a classic march from the Sousa of The Valleys, T.J.Powell, some WIlliam Walton adapted for band by Paul Hindmarsh, plus one of Philip Sparkes many brilliant test pieces, The Vikings, written for Michael Antrobus & The Eikanger Bjorsvik Band to play at the European Champions in 1988. It’s still sounding as mysterious and triumphant today as it did then.

Brilliant brass sounds then, in this week’s Music Podcast."
