Sunday Bandstand 11 July 2021

Johannes Hanssen (b: 2 December 1874 in Ullensaker – d: 25 November 1967 in Oslo) was a Norwegian bandmaster, composer, and teacher. He was bandmaster of the Oslo Military Band from 1926 to 1934 and again from 1945 to 1946. He received the King's Order of Merit in Gold and King Haakon VII's Jubilee Medal.

His most famous composition is his Valdresmarsjen (Valdres March), published by Boosey and Hawkes in 1904. A march celebrating the beautiful Valdres region in Norway that lies between Oslo and Bergen. The main theme is the signature fanfare for the Valdres Battalion, which is based on an ancient melody formerly played on the medieval Lur, an uncoiled wooden wind instrument.

Numerous settings for brass band exist in addition to various arrangements for concert band and orchestra.

We are featuring this popular brass band march on this show and is played by the band of the Yorkshire Imperial Metals Band in 1975 and conducted by Trevor Walmsley DFC.
