    haven't played the horn part (duh!) but cappriccio brillante is a pretty cool piece to play

    Ive played both, but not with band. They are both great pieces, but i would say cappriccio is alot harder

    I think Welsh Theme's a lovley solo, its just abit long to do in a normal concert! :)

    you should do it kate, its not long enough to tire you out and has a really nice band accomp.
    I was thinking about doing it with besses (before i left), and I know Donna Lewis did it a few times with Leylando

    Not that it's tireing(sp?!) jus abit long. If i went to a concert and someone did a solo that lasted virtually 10mins, i'd be bored. :? It's not the most lively solo in the world is it?! (apart form the last bit)
    Just my opinion :)

    Actually i did it for one of my bbc rounds and its only 4:30 with the cuts that are printed. Personally i think Capriccio is alot better because its easier to pull off. If you can shape Welsh theme well and ooze all of the music out it sounds great tho.

    Seems as good a place as any to ask this:

    What's this new(ish) solo 'Vocalise' like then?

    Going by the title I assume a slow melody, difficulty? (ie could I play it!)
  15. Aidan

    yup a slow melody. very nice, originally arranged from a double bass solo i think.

    I am sure it is originally a vocal solo by Rachmaninov..has been transcribed for loads of different combinations , Euph , cornet , tuba....there is a great version on the James Watson CD ( accomp by Black Dyke )

    i meant transcribed not arranged.. it is the sandy smith arrangement isnt it?

    Thanks (NOT :evil: ) to our postie, (probably a holiday cover, cus our usual chap leaves parcels at the front wedged behind a drain pipe), we eventually have our band parts to Variations on a Welsh Theme. I ordered them about 3.5 weeks ago and was about to phone and moan, but we went to put our rubbish out this morning and found a soaking wet soggy brown package round the back of the house (only about 12 inches from the bin)! Lucky the bin men refuse to come round to the back of the house. Judging by the invoice date, its probably been there for nearly 2 weeks!! Thank you much and well done publishers for wrapping music in polythene before packaging for posting!!!

    No doubt Vicki will let you know whats she thinks about playing it with band as soon as she has done so.

    Didn't think Var on a Welsh Theme was published for band thought it was only piano and horn.

    Its published by R Smith & Co and they "Print to Order" the band parts.
