News April 2019

Thanks are due to Paul Marshall, photographer, and Timothy Lumsdaine, designer, for their excellent work in creating the CD cover for Dracula. Christo Curtis has made a draft master of the entire double CD which awaits approval from the relevant parties! So we appear to be on track for a May release. The launch will probably be held at the Opera Centre in Sydney.

Practice continues on the opus 25 Chopin studies and the Godowsky versions. I can play some of them!


I must mention my recent trip to Adelaide to attend the celebration of Bob Hower's life. Bob was a friend and champion of my concert band music (see CD page). I was able to say a few words of appreciation at the event. Bob was one of the finest musicians I have known.













David Stanhope is a free-lance conductor with wide experience in orchestral, opera, chamber and film music. He is a composer, especially for wind band, with many publications. As an instrumentalist, David Stanhope was a french horn player for many years before switching to bass trombone; he is also a virtuoso pianist.
