A fine recording from one of the most innovative brass bands, Leyland Band and their then musical director Jason Katsikaris, features music at the cutting edge of our brass band repertoire by two very talented British composers, Simon Dobson and Kenneth Hesketh.
"A disc not to be missed. ***** " (Christopher Thomas, Brass Band World Magazine)
"This recording shows Leyland at the height of its powers, with both players and conductor performing on an entirely convincing level. It’s powerful stuff, and this is a CD that should be high on anyone's list." (4barsrest)
