    does anyone know where you can get the recordings on CD of Variations on a Welsh Theme (Peter Kneale) and Capriccio (Phillip Sparke). Preferably with the soloists being Horn? Can't seem to find any:-?

    Owen Farr has recorded Variations on a Welsh theme and it is available from WoB Tunes. There is a Capriccio available on there too if you search, but it is on Soprano, not horn.

    Think Sandy Smith did Welsh Themes on the Fairey's 'Double Champions' CD - worth getting for the test piece performances as well. I used to have a tape of Gavin Lindsay doing Capriccio with CWS Glasgow, not sure what the album is called though.... Have never heard of Capriccio being recorded on horn unfortunately!

    This is on "The Flower of Scotland", as we've said, for Soprano, can't find a horn one either.

    - you'll find that Craig Bennett (sop.) plays Capriccio on this recording as well! ;)

    it is beginning to look like you will have to hire a studio and record it yourself. :D

    Why not ask RT if he can bring the piece out in rehearsal with you playing the Sop part on horn...? Knowing Wem band well, I am sure you could play it. Might even entice me up for a listen and to say hi to you all as it's one of my fav pieces and I loved ducting it when I was ducting... :)

    Both these pieces are on Fairey's Double Champions CD, although the Cappricio is on soprano cornet.
