Gennin composed the Merry Brothers in 1928, but this is the first published edition of the sheet music, which has a piano reduction by Roz Trübger. [the orchestral parts can be hired from us]
Notes: Jean Gennin and his brother Pierre were two of the early stars of British Broadcasting with their performances of Jean's works. They were for many years the flute section of the Bournemouth Municipal [Symphony] Orchestra and enormously popular with audiences. Entertainers par excellence, they always included visual gags, such as staging mock sword fights with their flutes during bars rest!
Play along with the composer and his brother,Jean & Pierre Gennin, or just enjoy their sparkling performance of the music in the Youtube video below [recorded in 1930 by Columbia Records].
