Hello tmp. I know that this subject has been broached before. I am looking at doing some 'reduced' versions of some of my music. I know that there is the "10 Piece" already. Looking around the web, I notice that a "10 piece" varies slightly in instrumentation. Also, if you were looking for music for a 'smaller' band, would you think of 10 piece? I would welcome ideas and suggestions from fellow tMPers about a) What do you think is an ideal combination for a small band/ensemble b) In your opinion/experience, what is the instrumentation of a "10 piece" and c) What style(s) of music would be the most popular. Thanks for your help.
