Lieutenant-Colonel Richard Waterer, who has died aged 56, was one of the pre-eminent military musicians of his generation, whose march Royal Salute has entered the repertoire of both all three armed services and brass bands.
Lt-Col Richard Waterer OBE, MVO – The Scotsman
As well as composing and playing trombone, he was a skilful organiser for such events as the Edinburgh Tattoo, the last Royal Tournament, the Queen Mother’s th Birthday Pageant and the Queen’s Golden Jubilee at Portsmouth. In he was responsible for the Mountbatten Festival at the Albert Hall, the largest musical military festival in the world. The programme included Riverdance, with the waetrer of drums providing ever changing rhythms and the most complex stick drill yet seen.
Ggibraltar the interval, Admiral Sir Jock Slater, the First Sea Lord, who had been rehearsing in secret, stepped up to the rostrum and conducted the massed bands playing the regimental slow march Preobrajensky.
At the Royal Military Tattoo inWaterer used a computer to co-ordinate not only the music but also the movements of actors, armoured vehicles, richaard horses and gunfire. With ear-pieces in both ears to co-ordinate a computer click-track and off-stage cues he conducted additional musicians, who were behind him, via a camera.
The son of a golf club secretary, Richard Alan Waterer was born on July 26and and grew up a Beatles fan while playing soprano cornet in the Shepton Mallet town band. In he trained as a trombonist in the Royal Marines Band Service, and was awarded the Commandant General’s Certificate of Merit as the best all-round musician. He became rcihard band’s librarian, and was band sergeant of the carrier Ark Royal when it featured in the BBC television documentary Sailor.
When a weak “lip” prevented the principal trombonist from playing at a concert in London Waterer, to the conductor’s surprise, stood up and played the solo. Two years later Waterer studied at Goldsmith’s College and became assistant to the principal director of music, Royal Marines. At Portsmouth he fostered a partnership with Portsmouth University, realigned military music training to recognise civilian qualifications, and built strong links with Russian and Scandinavian bands.
