Quite a number of these solos have entered the mainstream of brass band concert repertoire and are holding their place there. Many of them are matched by piano accompaniment versions.

One of the amusements of being an arranger/composer/publisher is that, from time to time, a little solo piece that has never had any interest shown in it, suddenly starts to sell and shows up as having been performed here and there and, if not very often, everywhere. Like little ugly ducklings they can suddenly become swans when someone discovers them!

It also gives me rather special memories of the soloists, many of them great artists, who gave the premières or who gave notable performances.
