Released in the summer of 2016, Dream Times is the first new album from Steven Mead in two years. Many of the works are brand-new compositions receiving their first performances, and others are new arrangements. The recording has a theme of music and dreams, giving it a fascinating feel.
Renowned euphonium virtuoso Steven Mead teams up with Belgian ensemble Brassband Buizingen (Musical Director Luc Vertommen) for a set of euphonium solos, several arranged by MD Vertommen.
Pearls is the worthy successor to the superb, award-winning Diamonds that Steven Mead recorded with the Central Band of the Royal Air Force in 2012.
