Following my first CD’s great success, my new challenge will be in the UK, the home of brass band, where I will record with Foden’s.
I will be the first French Tenor Horn Soloist to record a full cd with one of the world's leading brass bands.
I have has also enlisted the help of the award winning World Of Brass to record the cd.
I am looking forward to travelling to England to work with the Foden's Band who I first met in 2014 when I was asked to adjudicate their annual Solo Contest.
The cd will feature a number of exciting new compositions from leading composers including:
- a new work from Dr Meechan which will also feature Mark Wilkinson and Dave Thornton
-a new piece from Jonny Bates and Benjamin Richeton
-creations from Nicolas Chatenet, Jean-Philippe Ichard, Jean-Jacques Charles, Thierry Caens and, Franck Zabel
-a new arrangement from Makoto Sekiya and a solo with Thomas Pesquet
Speaking on behalf of Foden's Mark Wilkinson commented “Foden's are looking forward to working with Anthony on the forthcoming recording project. Anthony is highly regarded as one of the leading Tenor Horn players.”
