    Hi Folks,

    The fantastic prize on offer for this month to the person with the most correct answers is a CD kindly donated by World of Brass entitled:


    You have until midnight on the 31st July to submit your entry.
    Take care though, as the first form received from any individual will be taken as your only entry - you cannot amend your entry.
    In the event of a 'tie', a 'tie-breaker' question has been added. The judges (tMP Site Admin & tMP Mods) decision will be final. (Hehehe!)

    The Winner and Answers will be announced on 1st August, so go on - have a go and have some fun. Remember it's not the winning, it's the taking part that counts.

    So here we go . . . Good Luck Everyone

    Just click on the following link to take part:

    Just taken my first glance through and I think this one is going to be a bit easier than the June quiz (I recognise everyone in the photos already). Knowing my luck however I'll probably come last. :cry:

    Seeing as I already have this excellent CD (just like we already had a set of the excellent 'Bombasto' - you can pay me later Rog ;) ) - I will be aiming to come 2nd again!

    Was that convincing? ;)

    Well I won't be entering this month as it looks as though I'm going to be spending some time trapped inside Dave Jake's gig bag.

    One of the questions in this months quiz looks to be a bit dodgy to me. I question whether the 'powers that be' will actually have the right answer. Cant really say which question it is at the mo but time will tell.


    PS I have already submitted my effort and so whoever reads the entries will know which question I think will be controversial.

    Don't forget the great prize on offer this month. (Courtesy of World of Brass).


    Bourgeois in Brass
    Yorkshire Building Society
    Conducted by: Dr. David King

    1. Apocalypse. Opus 187, 17.20
    2. Sonata for Trombone and Brass Band, Opus 156B
    i. Allegro con Brio, 4.36
    ii. Allegro Scherzando, 3.19
    iii. Adagio Cantabile, 6.04
    iv. Allegro con Fuoco, 4.38
    6. Blitz, Opus 65, 12.24
    7. Concerto Grosso for Brass Band, Opus 61A, 20.46B


    An epic recording. YBS at full tilt on some of the most musically and technically demanding brass band music ever written – and the band and all involved in the project to bring some classics from Derek Bourgeois to the light of day come out of it with immense credit.

    Four major and serious works are given performances of stature that it is hard to believe can be bettered. “Apocalypse” – described as “almost unplayable” by the composer stretches YBS to the full but they deliver a Premiere performance that shakes you to your foundations, whilst Ian Bousfield is quite brilliant on the demanding “Sonata for Trombone” – some player.

    Finally two real classics are dusted off and vividly brought to life by David King’s intuitive interpretations. “Blitz” still shocks the system 22 years after it was first used, whilst the “Concerto Grosso” is a tour de force given a tour de force performance from soloists and ensemble alike.

    The Winner and Answers will be announced on 1st August, so go on - have a go and have some fun.

    Remember it's not the winning, it's the taking part that counts.

    Have we been using the Tardis again (see the Bander's Story, part one) :?:

    At the start of the topic you stated entries should be in by midnight on 31st July, and now you say there are still 24 hours to go - Very interesting :shock:

    No doubt he's so inundated with entries that it's taking him an extra 24 hrs to correct them all..
