Nick Hudson to feature Holst in Taunton

Written By: Edward Solomon Comments: 0

Trombonist Nick Hudson is to perform Gustav Holst's recently rediscovered solo trombone work. Nick has been invited to perform the Concertante with the Taunton Concert Band in April. Says Nick:

I've performed the piece a number of times in Spain and the States but it seems the work is rarely heard here in the UK. It was originally composed for trombone and organ and was transcribed for wind band by Stephen Roberts. It's quite a challenge, not for stretching the technical abilities of the trombone but for interpretation, and stamina! It's also nice to be given the chance to perform British repertoire on British soil for a change.

Nick will also be featuring Monti's Czardas which will take place at the Taachi-Morris Arts Centre in Taunton on 1 April 2006.
