    Just finished two solos, that I thought I would direct anyone who's interested to!

    Morning Impressions was written for Dawn (Dawny'sFlug on tMP) and is a 6 minute gem for flugel with a lovely slow 'movement' sandwiched by slightly faster more a virtuostic section. You can see this here.

    The Big Apple was written reminising after a trip to the States and New York. It also bears in mind the topic BrassNeck brought up about shorter solos, so it's a smidgen under 3 minutes. I'll place a link here tomorrow when SibeliusMusic has cleared it. Edit: you can find it here.

    Enjoy!

    - a little off-topic, but you led me that way ;) . To be on-topic ... following immediately after a brisk band introduction, the cornet solo displays an energetic syncopated motif which leads into a melodic theme with which the accompaniment maintains the early momentum. The middle, slower section is interesting as it reminds me of a barrel-organ type background in the form of a slow waltz. Soloist plays a brief reflective passage of a quieter moment which is echoed by full band. All is not lost and the piece returns to the cheerful hussle and bussle of the original themes to close!

    (... you can pay me later!)
