    Is this a case of starting a rumor, hoping it gathers momentum so the selection committee go out of their way not to use it? ;)

    Not at all.

    Heard on the grapevine from someone who at this
    moment is in the right place at the right time.

    Yep, I've heard Harmony Music too. Great test! (but then isn't that true of just about anything by such a great composer)

    My source has just told me it definitely isn't Harmony Music.

    Played Harmony Music at the 1987 finals great test piece would love to hear it again , euphonium players grave yard for sure , a real test and it would be interesting to see how far bands have actually come on technically , I am sure that it would still challenge even the best !!

    OMG! My triple-tonguing's naff - think I'll move onto bass drum if this is the piece... :oops:

    I predict something 'yellow' fit the first section.

    This will follow the trend of:
    Something old
    Something new
    Something old
    Something ce@p

    Looks like the cat's out of the bag on Harmony Music then. I too heard that rumour a couple of weeks ago but never put much truck by these things when they're so early.

    The selection comittee have plenty of time to change things if they desire, and if they do desire then someone's well and truly put the mockers on it by posting it here!

    Personally I hope they don't because it's a cracker of piece - albeit harder than french-kissing a cobra..... but that doesn't really concern me as we're 1st section from next year.

    Just another thought. I kinda feel like if it was one of my pieces up for selection I'd be a bit unhappy if it got switched out by someone posting about it on here though.....
  13. same source as my source alyn?!

    I'd love to play harmony music, it'd still be a very stern test for the top section!

    I would hazard a guess at the same time as every year - at the National Finals in September.
