Performance Recordings of Fendall and Tom Hill

Title   About
 

Flowerdale

Soprano Cornet solo by Philip Spark
 

Fendall performs this challenging solo in 35 degree C heat with Sunshine Coast Brass

 

In Paradisum

From Requiem by Gabriel Faure
 

Recording done in 2006. Images are some of Fendall’s favourite surrealist artists (no copyright infringement intended)

 

Air on the G String

JS Bach
 Fendall plays piccolo trumpet. Images of sunsets taken at Fendall’s abode, the Chateau Verde Hill
 

Maoriland

Trombone Solo by Dean Goffin
 

Tom Hill’s first notable recording, made when he was 18 years old, playing a cornet solo on trombone, in a different key at short notice, playing band parts as part of the solo due to missing players, with an unsuitable mouthpiece - and yet his performance of Maoriland, made a big impact in US and UK in 1952.

 

Long Long Ago

Trombone Solo by Harold Scotney
 

Fendall’s Dad, Tom Hill playing Long Long Ago on the album called 'Spectrum'. Due to available space on the LP, they cut it down to a 4 min recording, missing out an initial cadenza and first triplet variation, but you get to hear the loud, rapturous applause from a capacity crowd at the Wanganui Town Hall at the 1971 Champion of Champions at the New Zealand National Band contest.
