    Very much a follow-up to Pantomime, this new solo was commissioned by David Childs.
    Brass band version now available. Concert band and piano versions to follow.

    Please contact your nearest dealer or get it directly from your local De Haske office:

    Can us horns have a follow up to Masquerade as well please? :tongue:;)

    We're very short on music at the moment as is being discussed - here ;):)

    I think I'll also have a look at Harlequin as well, because I reeeally like Pantomime! :biggrin:

    Woo keep them coming Mr Sparke Sir! :tongue::biggrin:

    We had a run through Harlequin before the area for an upcoming Philip Sparke CD, what a lot of notes!!! Cracker.

    Having heard David Childs play "Harlequin" live at Hendon Highlights, as well as on his "Welsh Connections" cd, I'd recommend it to anyone who enjoys lyrical writing - providing they've got a good upper register.

    Haven't got my hands on Harlequin yet but I learnt Pantomime under the direction of David Childs when I started at Birmingham Conservatoire in September, and it's a fantastic piece of music, I love it! Will have to keep my eye out for Harlequin!

    I've been trying to track down a copy of this in the US, and no one seems to know what the heck I'm talking about (except Adam Frey, but I'm... "not sure" how he got his copy of it). Anyone have any ideas how I can get a copy of this (at least for euph and piano, though the band set would be great)?
  9. dave childs did this piece with nybbgb this summer and it was amazing , i seriously like it although i dont think ill be able to play it on a bflast bass

    well done mr sparke
