    I'm thinking of buying a copy of the Morceau Symphonique to perform with my Band, however, I find that there are at least three arrangements of this piece. One that has been around for years by Dave Fretwell, another arrangement by Maurice Bale, and a third arrangement (probably much more recent judging by the cost -over £50:00, wheras the other two are below £20:00) by an unknown arranger. I just wondered if any other trombonists have played any of these arrangements, and what they thought?

    Don't limit yourself to just trombonists!

    I played it for my Grade VIII (bass clef) euphonium - but only with piano....

    I'd recommend the Ray Steadman-Allen arrangement published in mid-70s by SP&S. I suppose you could get this from worldofbrass.

    I've just listened to Christian Lindberg/Orchestra vs. Nick Hudson/brass band arr. by RSA played by Britannia (Fodens) and second David Mann's recommendation.

    Forgot to mention you'll need to ask for "Concert Piece for Trombone"

    Didn't realise my arrangement was still out there!

    It has been re-originated into our modern Judd Street Collection format.
