    Hey everyone,
    I have my horn recital next thursday :-? and whilst doing my A levels, kinda forgot about doing a programme and now im finding it very hard (impossible in fact) to find the background info on my pieces that I need. Has anybody done a horn recital with the same pieces as me or knows anything about them that could help? Im playing Cornucopia, Concertino, Mozart horn concerto and Variations on a Welsh Theme.
    Help please!

    Hi Emma and :hi to tMP!

    I've moved your thread into "the Rehearsal Room" which is the best place for a request like this. I hope you get some good pointers here soon.

    Ermmm how much background can you give on a typical brass band tenorhorn piece? lol!

    Ermm The theme of Welsh theme is watching the wheat?

    They're all good pieces though.. specially welsh theme and cornucoppia.. ooh and the concertino... (you should try the full version, it has an AMAZING cadenza) and the mozart is proper cheese! :tongue: Good programme! :biggrin:

    - there's not a lot on the Concertino apart from what I found on the sleevenotes of the Black Dyke 'Concerto' CD (only mentioning that it is in one continuous movement with an extended cadenza in free time accom. by percussion and noting the 'threepenny opera' tune that makes it cheery!). It was performed by Sandy Smith.

    Post-edit:- Some info. on the Kneale Variations from the Fairey 'Double Champions' CD. According to the source, it is based on the folk-song 'The Golden Wheat' and written in 1981. Opens with a simple statement of the theme and first vari. is a simple waltz leading to a lively scherzo treatment in a faster waltz tempo. Next is a wistful minor key variation with a central climax and short cadenza. The last vari. (in a major key) is in bright rhumba rhythm and drives the piece to a brilliant close. Soloist again is Sandy Smith.
