Here is an interesting one. Obviously I am taking my band on the Talisman for the Area. I conducted another band last noght who are also competing with the same test piece. Now I can't say either way, but its interesting to look at interpretations. Question - those of you who are playing Talisman, are you playing 3-3-2 in 8/8 bars or is your main man conducting 8/8 bar in 4. You don't have to say who you are, just curious. I won't be changing what I am doing at this stage (Wouldn't dare!). Its interesting though to see how the music flows differently and changes the pattern of the melody. Rightly or Wrongly, I couldn't really say. Its a matter of taste.
