Cornet & Euphonium duet gets green light for publication

Posted by Martin Cordner on Wednesday, September 14, 2011, In : publication 
Heard today that my 2003 duet You are always there will be published next spring in the UK General Series journal. Good news for subscribers (I hope!) but sorry for anyone who might otherwise have wanted it from me as sadly I am no longer able to offer it to bands.

ISB premiere of 'Fusion' announced

Posted by Martin Cordner on Friday, September 9, 2011, In : performances

Hi everybody

The latest site update includes an inspiration article on the music of Dudley Bright. Plus the aboutbio and composing pages now have a new look, too. Hope you enjoy these changes.  

No more additions to the catalogue this time, I'm afraid. Now these site updates are done I'll be spending any spare time finishing the Balham 120 march mentioned in an earlier post.

There have been some good comments posted on the site recently. Also, via the contact page I have been pleased to hear f...
