    LMAO that is so bad it makes your teeth itch.

    Is that a bassoon I hear being brutally murdered? (its so bad I'm not even sure what the instrument is...)

    Celeste wasn't bad. Think the tenor sax didn't transpose the bassoon part properly though. :biggrin:

    Oh my goodness, that is truly awful.

    What makes it even worse is that it's such an awful arrangement. The string parts didn't change throughout, as if it's just an ostinato pattern underneath!

    Happy memories though... my dad played in the orchestra of English National Ballet for years and years and every Christmas, we would go and see the dress rehearsal of The Nutcracker. It sounded ever so slightly better than that recording.

    If I can work out how, I'll have to get my ex-boyfriend to put some of the recordings he's made of his "Beginner Brass Ensemble" playing The Muppet Show Theme tune on the internet. It's currently his ring tone on his mobile and it makes for fun listening!
