Last weekend I was invited by Francois Roh to work with his bands in preparation to their Swiss Nationals. Great repertoire and great bands. Ensemble de Cuivre Valaisan worked on Concoerto Grosso by Derek Bourgeois and Myth Forrest from Stig Nordhagen. It was great to find the band in good shape.
Ensemble de cuivre Ambitus worked on Excalibur by Jan van der Roost. So good to see so many young players deliver this quality: Real impressive stuff !
In the end of the weekend there was also time left to work with Brassband Lotschentall and their conductor Aldo Werlen. They also did a great job en where crowned Swiss Champions the next weekend.
It was nice to enjoy the great food, mountains and wine, en even better to catch up with Ludovic Neurohr. The Spijkerpakkenband will perform one of his main works in 2019 !
