    I'd also like to know how to tremelo on some of the notes the 1st horn part states!
    Mr Broadbent. could you please advise?:confused:

    I wonder which band "roadtested" the arrangement?

    I presume Mr Broadbent is asking the impossible.

    Out of curiosity, which notes are you concerned about?

    I'll save the trouble ... G# (2nd line), A natural (2nd Space), B natural (3rd line). 2nd Bari is idle throughout so it could be moved to accompany 1st bari, who is also playing tremeloes (both that and 2nd cornet have occasional tremeloes on A natural, 2nd space whilst 3rd cornet has to negotiate F#, 1st space and B natural, 3rd line). Such fun, lol!

    I particularly like the inaudible marimba concerto after the Allegro Moderato, written for a 5 octave instrument but we're now told that only a 4.3 octave will be available on the day!

    They do sound fun! I generally use two methods for playing 'git tremolos':
    1) Using both hands. For a B, I'd alternate between 2nd-valve with my right middle finger and 1/3 with my left index and ring fingers... not very sightly but effective nonetheless;
    2) Using the tongue to tremolo. Almost like double tonguing but without actually re-articulating.

    You shouldn't have to be put through the hoops though, if some thought and planning went into arranging this score ... I put this together in a few hours.
    Capriccio Italien. (Some enharmonics still need to be used to make it an easier read).

    If you look carefully, I don't use any tremeloes. ;)

    Cheers, Gareth. I used old notation for sub-division there.

    This thread's went really quiet. Maybe I've got it wrong and this is truly an excellent arrangement as 4BR described it ...

    I must admit Tom, its growing on me. It is a lovely piece of music by Tchaikovsky.

    No doubts about the music. What do you think about the arrangement?

    With no actual tempos, I think interpretation is difficult and will depend on mood of adjudicator on the day. I've listened and watched several orchestral versions ranging between 9 and15 minutes in length due to vast differences in tempos!

    After Harmony Music I'm enjoying the relative tranquility of the tuba part for Capriccio Italien :)

    But there are quite a few errors that need clarification. Because there's no errata sheet doesn't mean there's nothing to be altered.
