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!
Though future issues of Historic Brass Today will be a benefit of membership, requiring users to log in to view it and get their copy, we are so proud and excited about HBT that we are making the first issue available to all!
