TRACK OF THE WEEK
Every week Frank selects his own favourite track of the week from our weekly Music Podcast, and it's completely free to listen too, here on Frank Renton on Brass. As he says this week,
"Track of the week this week at Frank Renton on Brass is unusual because there are not one but two tracks, but both from the same album.
Matthew Gee is Principal Trombone of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and a constant searcher after new things for him and his instrument and perhaps his many students at the Royal Academy of Music.
He has just released album two of Trombone Travels, his arrangements for trombone of three great song cycles by Elgar Stanford and Vaughan Williams. So our first track is from the Songs of Travel by Vaughan Williams, Matthew with Christopher Glynn at the piano play The Roadside Fire.
Our second short track is a movement from the Stanford Songs of the Sea, where Matthew is accompanied by a trombone ensemble made up of his colleagues at the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Mathew Knight, Rupert Whitehead and Joseph Cirtina and again Christopher Glynn at the piano, in Devon O Devon in Wind and Rain - you even get a weather forecast here at Frank Renton on Brass!"
We hope you’ll enjoy our free track of the week that's below - and then will join us to hear all our many programmes, interviews and music podcasts. It’s a lot less than a cup of coffee a week!
