    Any advice on the 4th movement from 'Windows of the World' please?
    In particular, at Letter J, in all of the recordings i've heard (well 2 anyway!!) the Percussion plays 'p' on the repeat, even though this isn't marked on the parts or score, and then crescendo's with the rest of the band into 'K'. They are marked 'p' when the band does come in anyway.
    Now, in a concert setting this would be ok, as its very effective, but would you do this on a contest stage? Should the Percussion stay at 'f' as marked on the parts right up until the rest of the band enters?
    Personally, i have chosen to play it the same way as the recordings, but what does everyone else think?
