    There most certainly is, we played it just last week, I'll try and find out who arranged/published it tomorrow night unless someone else already knows. :?: (I have a feeling it may be a Siebert arrangement :? )

    I seem to remember that it's mostly harmless, I've played worse.

    Justmusic list the Siebert together with one by Gordon Langford:

    Search under "Spartacus, Khachaturian"

    I know which I would go for, but it's up to you :!:

    If I remember rightly, Siebert arrangement is only a "theme" from the Adagio. Was used as the theme for the "Onedin Line" which was very popular TV show many years ago. Probably why every other band that made a record about that time seems to have recorded it! :D

    Yeah, harmless is probably a good description, not a whole lot to it!

    Great for the oldies in the audience (which seems to be about most of it) "ooh I remember that one" :D and lets face it thats whats it's all about folks. Keep them punters coming back for more so that we can get the dough to do all that wonderful contesting which costs a fortune. :D
