  1. Have any other fourth section finalists had a nosey at this piece yet?

    We had a look at it last night at band.

    It's interesting to say the least and has lots of tricky, intricate parts.

    We at BTB love it…..especially the ‘vertigo’ moments

    We got the piece out last week. Some tricky moments, especially balancing the heavily scored accompaniment with the solo parts. Nice horn and flugel parts but not much in it for the solo cornets.

    Any errata noted? Official or otherwise?

    Yeah got that one.:clap: Just wondered if any more as there is an uncomfortable note just before A in the 2nd mvt. which is repeated at the end.
