    There are two arrangements of the Arban version of Carnival of Venice for Bb cornet and band: Keith Wilkinson and Fred Muscroft.
    Does anyone have any insight on the differences between them?

    I've got one I had done for me for brass band which is for the version straight out of Arban's. It works well!

    I didn’t know Fred did one of Arban’s CofV. He definitely did one of Del Staiger’s version though.
    Keith W is a good musician, so his arrangement will be ok.

    God bless Fred. I recently asked to play Fred's "El Solista", and gave my MD , who worked with Fred for many years, the score to peruse. He came back a week later and said..." as an arranger he was a bloody good cornet player!" I leave the choice of arrangement up to you :).
