Brendan’s Latest Solo Project… NOT JUST A TRUMPET!


This concert will be a first for me. Just me and a trumpet versus the audience. No piano, no organ, no orchestra.

Just me!

It will take place on MONDAY NOVEMBER 23rd, 8pm in the brand new MUSIC ROOM in the recently refurbished Liverpool Philharmonic Hall.The event, entitled ‘Not Just A Trumpet!’, will feature no less than four world premieres from internationally renowned composers as diverse, talented and fascinating as can be. I will also be playing that timeless classic of  the electro-acoustic genre, ‘The Transistor Radio of Saint Narcissus’. The performance will include music with film, music with poetry, music with images, music with scripted narrative, music with pre-recorded brass ensemble, music with pre-recorded ‘tape’ and music with live electro-acoustics. There is also a well stocked bar!

Something for everyone, without exception!


The programme is a very exciting one, including modern music which should have something to suit all tastes.

The Programme…

Nigel Clarke – Magritte Fantasy – World Premiere!

A piece for solo trumpet in 4 movements, inspired by 4 paintings by Belgian surrealist Rene Magritte.
