It's arrived! The inaugural edition of Historic Brass Today, an all-new publication of the Historic Brass Society to be published two times a year, bringing you news items from the historic brass community around the globe, articles on a wide variety of topics, interviews, instrument reports, reviews, and even a cartoon!
This month we have an article on the Akron Band Conspiracy of 1899, by Bryan Proksch, a visit to The Bate Collection by David Jarratt-Knock, an interview with Klezmer trombonist Dan Blacksberg by Liza Malamut, the Sackbut Renaissance in Japan by Motoaki Kashino, an interview with Bob Barclay by David Wharton, and a conference report on the HBS Cross Currents conference last Spring by Joanna Ross Hersey. We have columnists Chris Belluscio on an orchestral trumpet by J.G. Kersten and a column on activities by early music amateurs by Susan Wilcox. Jean-Francois Madeuf discusses trumpet projects in Paris and Versailles plus reports on concerts and courses and several reviews.
In addition, Historic Brass Today (HBT) is also our first multi-lingual publication with an article in Spanish on the history of Banda music in Mexico by Jimena Palacios Uribe!
