City of Bristol Brass Band, with our Learner Band, and conducted by Ian Holmes, gave the world premiere performance of Laura Shipsey's Of Far Flung Skies at St George's, Bristol in October, 2021. This is Laura's first composition for brass band and we all thoroughly enjoyed the journey from its inception to the final performance.
The piece is due to be broadcast on BBC Radio 3, on Wednesday, 19th January. Our recording will be broadcast after the Radio 3 in Concert programme, in which the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra and conductor Kazuki Yamada are joined by soprano Fatma Said for a concert of music by Mozart, Mahler and Strauss.
We very much hope that you enjoy listening to this piece as much as we enjoyed performing and recording it.
