    Thanks guys. It was a hard week and pretty nerve wracking playing for Allen Vizzutti, Barry Tuckwell, Rex Richardson and Oystein Baadsvik.

    Heard some amazing playing though from all involved!

    Congrats mate...
    You'll just have to learn how to play it now! ;-)

    Good luck with the Haydn Adagio thingy!

    Congrats an all that, but what sort of piccolo is it?
    If you were presented with an Amati, I would hand it back, but if it were a Blackburn...:biggrin:
