    Just a question. In the piece of music "Chivalry" by Martin Ellerby, there is an instruction that reads

    "Quasi Pavillons nen l'air" ....Anyone know what it means?!

    Thanks,

    It's an instruction usually written in French Horn parts which means 'bells up'. In other words, that section should be pretty strident and cut across the rest of the band.

    I've heard two different versions of "Quasi Pavillons nen l'air", both something to do with the top part of the medieval tents which is bell-like in shape and has a flag on.
    One version i've heard is that this means "bells in the air" and the other version is "like flags waving in the air", both slightly different translations!
    I'm assuming both these refer to the style and not to the choreography of the piece! :?

    Glad i'm not playing it, i haven't got a clue what the thing means, my french barely gets past ordering a drink! :D

    I think it probably means "Tazz it like pump".

    You're all wrong. It means "buy the conductor a drink".

  13. If there's anything written on the part that you don't understand, and you get asked in front of the band what it means, say "look at the conductor". :D works a treat!

    Ms Varley, thank you for those kind words ! ! ! I had a great day on Sunday and really enjoyed playing percussion especially the noisy tam tam at the end! it's just a pity we were drawn so late in the day - but I soon caught up with you guys after a few cheeky wee whiskeys or two!

    When you guys out in town again?
