Once again there is a great prize from 4BR and our friends at Ev-entz — as long as you can get your thinking caps on?

Contemporary music CDs

After all the great music heard at the recent RNCM Festival of Brass, we have a quartet of fantastic CDs — including the latest from two of the young Belgian tyros who thrilled the Manchester cognoscenti – Harmen Vanhoorne and Glenn Van Looy.

We have the brilliant ‘Fortune’s Fool’ and ‘Move their Mind’ up for grabs as well as a cracking CD from tuba star Ian Foster who delivers ‘Handel to Valhalla’, and Stavanger’s latest ‘Brass Blot’ – with music from Torstein Aagaard-Nilsen, Gary B Peterson and Hakon Berge

Norwegian history

With the 4BR Editor off to enjoy the delights of the Norwegian Championships in Bergen on the weekend, this week’s question has a Nordic sporting feel.

Quiz Question:

Who was the manager of the English team when they famously lost to Norway in a World Cup qualifier in September 1981, leading to the commentator Bjorge Lillelien unforgettably exclaiming: "Lord Nelson! Lord Beaverbrook! Sir Winston Churchill! Sir Anthony Eden! Clement Attlee! Henry Cooper! Lady Diana! Maggie Thatcher — can you hear me, Maggie Thatcher! Your boys took one hell of a beating! Your boys took one hell of a beating!"

A: Sir Alf Ramsay
B: Ron Greenwood
C: Sven Goran Eriksson

Last Winner

We had a great response to last week’s quiz, with Stephen Clayton knowing that the French musician and author of a method of instruction, who was born in Lyon on February 28th 1825 and died in Paris on April 8th 1889 was of course Jean Baptiste Arban.

He can now look forward to getting to grips with Paul McGhee’s exotic test piece ‘Waiting for a Pain Hit!??!!?’ as well as, ‘A Breathless Gnu Kiss!’ written by Norwegian composer Idar Torskangerpoll – plus,CDs from trombonist Simon Johnson, Derick and Stephen Kane and a classic oldie from Steven Mead.
