”Blue” is the latest addition to the popular “Leyland in Concert” series. It came into being following popular demand for recordings of the band’s concert repertoire, and volume 2 – Blue – is a fantastic addition to the series.
Leyland In Concert Volume 1 has proved a great success with supporters and audiences alike, and we are pleased to now bring you the second CD in the series. Leyland In Concert Volume 2, “Blue”, takes its content from the most popular Leyland Band repertoire of the last few years, including the best received pieces from the recent 2014 and 2015 Brass in Concert Championship programmes. This fantastic new recording is a mix of high octane virtuosity, beautiful reflective music, and some stunning solo contributions. This is a CD desirable equally for the serious connoisseur or just the ‘easy listener’.
