With the exception of Philip Sparke’s evocative, yet immensely tricky A Tale As Yet Untold, there is one immediately striking feature about the ‘Regional’ test-pieces that will challenge bands up and down the country early next year. All are new, unfamiliar works written by composers with either already established, or still growing reputations in the sphere of brass band composition. There will undoubtedly be those that lament what might be said to be the eschewing of tradition amongst the choices, but make no mistake, this is a bold statement of intent and positivity from a selection panel that will have thought long and hard about its choices.
