    This time, we have famous bands, conductors, composers, soloists and National Championship top section test pieces (all past and present) given the word strangling treatment. In the hope that a few more will enter this time, I hope I've made things a little easier. By each anagram a code can be seen indicating whether the answer is B (band) C (conductor), CP (composer) S (soloist) and NTP (National test piece). In some cases, more than one code will apply!

    Once you've solved them, the first letter of each correct answer, (in the case of a name of a person, the initial letter of their first name) when shuffled correctly, will spell out a well known brass band virtuoso.

    Can I request (mentioning no names) that we don't have entrants pm-ing other potential entrants to say 'I've got most of them right' as it will discourage the 'victims' ;-) Ta. Please pm with your answers; deadline 4pm tomorrow.

    Cheers and good luck
