Sunday Bandstand 14 July 2019

Léon Boëllmann (25 September 1862 – 11 October 1897) was a French composer, known for a small number of compositions for organ. His best-known composition is Suite Gothique (1895), which is a staple of the organ repertoire, especially its concluding Toccata.

This work was arranged for brass bands by Eric Ball in 1970 and was the set test at the UK second section area test piece in 1971. Since then it has been used many times as both a set test and an own choice test piece. The most recent being in 2017 at the Rochdale contest when the Denton band had it as its own choice 4th section test piece.
It has been recorded by brass bands many times. The slow movement has often been used as a stand-alone concert piece of music.

On this week’s show is a 2006 performance by Brass Band Fröschl Hall (Austria) conducted by Hannes Buchegger of the 3rd and 4th movements.

Enjoy the show.
