    Three Figures has never struck me as being a very strong test piece. I quite like The Maundsell(spelling?) Forts. Three Figures, seems to have nothing of the atmosphere as say Kenilworth for example.

    Brass Blot, the European piece from last year. What a load of pond scum that turned out to be. Dull.

    There are some real corkers in here! I'll add Judith Bingham's Prague (plague). Bleurgh.

    *Wipes away tears of mirth* Does this piece even still exist? I so want to hear it, it must be so very bad.

    Although it's going back quite a few years I think it is difficult to find more inane, boring rubbish than the arrangements of Eurovision songs, specifically 'Congratulations' 'Puppet on a string' and 'I'm walking on sunshine'. I'm still shuddering when writing this and it must be 20 years since they were in the folder!.
    Excuse me I'm going into a darkened room now until I can the tunes out of my head!!!

    Must have missed this post originally.
    Blitz - conductor saying 2nd horn (random selection of instrument before I get slaughtered) why did you play a right note in bar 73?
    BUT Amaranth, has anyone else on here ever had to play it? (National finals 1992). After several rehearsals, we asked the conductor if there was a melody anywhere in the piece.

    Stupidly I first thought you meant that Peter kay song - road to Amareallysillyitus or what ever it was called. You clearly didn't.

    No Amarillo has a good melody line compared to Amaranth. I mentioned this piece on another thread - my father saying after hearing the piece on contest Eve for the first time "I'm not sitting through that sh*te 18 times tomorrow"!
