    :clap: I like Ellerby....

    Anyone know much about this one? Apart from written with/for David King (who is conducting B&R :confused:)

    Is it nice? Loud? Tuneful? Feature soloists? or not......?

    Written for YBS and King for their tour to australia!
    I only played it once, but it's ****** difficult, for sop especially, starts on a top C and get's higher and higher, but that's what you get when it was written with Peter Roberts in mind! From what I remember it's a real tour de force technical showcase, lots of semi-quavers!
    Good luck with it though! :eek::eek::eek:

    Well that's it then.... he's got a head start so they're bound to win....wonder if their top end's gonna use those cheese discs for the senza mute bits....:)

    Not sure it will have been written with Pete in mind (although I can't be certain) as he left just before I did, a year before they went to Australia...

    The only reason I came to that assumption is because how high the piece is! Mabye not though..
    What do you think of it?

    Fair enough! I've not played it yet, but I do like his other works so should be a good 'un

    Gavin you are correct it was not written for super sop....he had left the band when it was written.
    To me it was a good extended concert piece which is why it was requested. I feel a little let down, it is not in the same company as the 1st section piece.

    However we all have to play it but I warn everyone, its no Tristan Encounters!!!
