A great instrument deserves a bigger library assembled by those who can play the works ! Well done..I might get tempted to redevelop my embouchure !

Hi Mike, Could you register my donation as David Pugh, All on Song. Tony may have explained the reasons. David has assisted with a lot of research on the Quintet, which has helped with the trio

Dennis Brain was a wonderful horn player and his name will continue to live on and inspire future generations of horn players to come. I think this is a superb idea.

What a wonderful project! I can only hope that this will not be the last CD to be made. I can’t wait to hear it and wish all the performers my gratitude.

Darren Roberts 22nd August 2021

Good luck on securing the funding and making the recording. Stephen is a hugely talented horn player and I look forward to hearing the finished article.

Exciting project that goes towards furthering Dennis Brain’s legacy. Nice also that even after a hundred years after his birth, we still remember him. Looking forward to the CD. Best wishes for the project.
