please please , who ever choses the pieces for the national finals this year, can we have something with MUSIC IN IT. lets not have another pentacle or prague. there are many great test pieces available to pick from. dont forget the players have to enjoy rehearsing them, also the paying public has to be considered. looking forward to harrigate, just hope the commitee who chooses the pieces feels the same. lets have the contest halls full again with people listening, instead of going to the bar. thanks ian buckley.
