Some time back, I wrote about my dislike for London Overture by Philip Sparke. Our band was rehearsing it for a competition which we went on to win. 'London' did sort of grow on me, however, I really want to tell you about Between the Two Rivers which no doubt, a lot of you have played at some stage in the past. We are rehearsing it for the Victoria Championships on the 24th August - so only a couple of rehearsals are now left. What an absolutely awesome piece of music this is - I love it and love playing it. I have it on my MP3 player and listen to it every break I get at work. The first variation (bar 44) moves along and you just get swept along with it - in fact, each variation is just great and if by chance, Mr Sparke happens to be reading this - I'm sure that Geelong West Brass will do you justice. I will report back with the competition results :tup Cheers all and thanks for reading this.
