I'm glad BfB has been taken seriously, such suggestions don't always interest people. The only reason I mentioned BfB is that Ive recently been listening to some of the classics, pieces that I regrettably NEVER got the chance to play. I (sort of) understand how great pieces from yesteryear get passed down the sections because of this myth that has come about that bands are SO much better than they were 30 years ago. So the natural place for once top section challenging pieces is now in the Lower sections..........Personally I believe the very top of banding is as strong or even stronger than it was 20/30 years ago but the general level is much poorer than it was so you get a scenario like the area where a once great test piece like Resurgam is getting poorer bands trying to make it sound like the masterpiece it is. I would like to hear top bands doing BfB and Journey into freedom and High Peak and Spectrum etc etc etc...............It would tie in with the increasing lack of time bands have, if bands didn't have to spend a 4 weeks learning to play the latest 150 notes per second waste of time and instead rehearsed a great piece for 2 weeks concentrating on banding basics and developing lyrical interpretations, banding as a whole would improve. How about two other pieces that have curiously never been heard again... Of Men and Mountains (the last great Gregson) and for one a little outside the box Frontier, I didn't play it but remember it causing some problems at the time, it would be a good quirky area piece.
