    Pick Alderley Edge... love that piece

    Quite a good selection that, if only all contest promoters chose pieces this quality :!:

    Pontins are doing Dances and Arias, so they might decide not to use it (quality piece though). I think they might do a Sparke this year after the Paganini last year.

    On Alderley Edge or Year of the Dragon - two of my all time favs.

    I'll definately be taking a trip up to Glasgow if it's one of those two.

    Dances & Arias or Year of the Dragon for me. (Preferably not Dove as I, like most, suffered an overdose of this at the Europeans).

    Although, as has been said, great selection and whatever is chosen I'll be there to listen.

    How can you possibly infer Paganini was not a good piece?? Some of the best music ever!

    I meant the choices apart from paganini William. Paganini is my favourite test piece afterall!! (aswell as Tristan and I quite like St Magnus too :wink: Planets is still gash though!! heehee)

    So where were you last night eh?! Was just me and Ali! You missed a treat of a rehearsal.
