Sing when you're winning

4BR talks to composer Andy Scott and euphonium virtuoso Glyn Williams following their concerto collaboration at the RNCM Festival of Brass.

Scott and Williams

 



4BR caught up with Andy Scott and euphonium star Glyn Williams, following the Welshman's acclaimed world premiere performance of the composer's fearsome new 'Euphonium Concerto'.

Singing

Glyn tells 4BR Editor Iwan Fox just how hard he had to work on his playing and singing to overcome the obstacles posed by piece, whilst Andy gives an insight into the process of working with the star performer — as well as a hint of more compositions to come.

4BR wants to ensure that the brass band movement remains vibrant and relevant. We also want to be able to question, challenge and critically examine those who run and play in it, producing high quality journalism that informs as well as entertains our readers.

So if like us you value a strong, independent perspective on the brass band world - then why not consider becoming a supporter and help make our future and that of a burgeoning brass band movement more secure.

So one less cappuccino then?
