Probably the best known American trombonist and Principal of the New York Philharmonic, Joseph Alessi, will be making a rare appearing in Britain this April to premier a new trombone concerto by Bramwell Tovey with the National Youth Brass Band of Great Britain, conducted by the composer. Bramwell Tovey has built his career as a conductor and is currently Musical Director at both the Vancouver Symphony and Orchestre Philharmonique du Luxembourg. In the past few years he has developed his composing too, to acclaim including Best Classical Composition 2003 for his Requiem for a Charred Skull. And with a background in British brass bands, it is no surprise that he was written several pieces for the instruments, including a popular work The Night to Sing for the British Open 2005 and Santa Barbara Sonata for Canadian Brass.
