Ok, I have now had a chance to look at the solo cornet part for Kaleidoscope and the 3rd Cornet part for Coventry Variations and to be honest I am surprised that the 3rd cornet part for cov vars is a lot more difficult than the solo cornet part for kaleidoscope. I would have expected it to be the other way around. I know all the cornet parts are important (before anyone slates me for saying 3rd cornets aint important) and given a choice I would happily sit at the bottom of the cornet section (after 2 years of trying have finally managed it with my band) but i would have thought that the solo cornet parts in a 2nd section piece should have been more technical and demanding (running semi etc, not counting and rhythm) than the 3rd cornets in a 1st section band. Just my opinion. What does every1 else think?
