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
