    And don't worry - if you do miss it, you can listen to it "on demand" from the radio 2 part of the BBC website.

    I listened to it this afternoon on t'internet. The bari solo was excellent - gorgeously written and beautifully played.

    I loved the Arcadians too - not heard that for ages and it brought back a load of memories. Thanks Besses, excellent gig!

    In the light of problems experienced in accessing this thread, I thought I'd move it into Auditorium - should be alright now!

    I've just listened to it again - first time I've ever listened to one via streaming...very bizarre.

    I quite like the barking iron solo as well ;) Interesting how Mr Coupe chose the Dick Turpin thing - fits in well with one of the (rather tenuous) stories as to how the Band got it's name :D

    Thanks to everyone for their kind comments and remarks re: 'Andante'. :tup

    You might be interested to know that it was Marianne who originally contacted me regarding publishing the 'slow' movememt of this Concertino as a seperate item, although at the time I never dreamed I would be listening to it being played on the Radio.
    Can I also thank Marianne for her fantastic performance and reading of this music. She is a brilliant musician and I hope that this performance will help to promote the Baritone as a more prominent Solo intrument.
