Posted to offer a counterpoint to "Hardest test piece"; a subtler question. Should be interesting to see what people really value in their own contest performances. For my personal choice, I find it hard to look beyond Wilby's 'Jazz', which was a real challenge for the areas 10 years ago, and one that we rose to so well that we followed the previous year's 9th place with 2nd place and qualification. So evidently there's a measure of musical satisfaction there, and a measure of satisfaction at how the band played, and a measure of satisfaction at the result. But do all of these need to come together to create a most satisfying experience?
