Dunston are playing Divertimento at the Durham League contest and have just started to practice it. However in the 3rd movement there is a poco rall for 4 bars. There is a breath mark after the 3rd ctotchet of the fourth bar and then the last crotchet at the slow temp leads into a presto for the big finish. Anyway someone said that Eric Ball wrote a breath mark but meant it as a cut off //. So do any brass band anaraks out there know if it is a breath mark or a cut. I have never played the piece and hope never to have to play it again but would like to do it right. :lol: The worrying thing is, even if he did mean a cut off, will the adjudicator know cos the score gives no clues. Ideally a reply from the adjudicator of the contest would be good, whoever he is. :?
