Steven Mead plays Napoli Variations with the Breeze Brass Band, Osaka, Japan

As an encore to a memorable concert with the superb Breeze Brass Band, conductor Kazuyoshi Uemura in Osaka, Japan 8th June 2009, Steve returns to the stage for an encore, Napoli Variations. Although in great pain (the last concert before an operation June 13,to fix a ruptured disc in his neck), Steve delivered this scintillating version of the famous solo Napoli to a delighted audience of Japanese brass enthusiasts.

Here are some links to YouTube and VIMEO videos.
Whilst we are quite sure most of these live clips were made without the permission of the soloist (!) we accept that these clips are a way of life these days, and if you have the time..maybe take a look at a few. Enjoy!!
Please let us know of any new clips you find that we should add to the list. You can email us: or post them on the guest book on this site. Of special interest will be the series of educational videos Steve is adding to this long list of live performances.
