    You completely missed my point. I did say, and I quote:

    In this case the band own a set of originals, so I can't imagine anyone taking issue with them copying the parts to make turnovers easier....

    The only difference between the cinema example and photocopying music is one of scale. Since film distributors are (usually) multi-million pound operations they can afford the legal fees to go after...

    Most have! Or at least, supplement their (usually meagre) composition income with a 'proper job' of some sort.

    I know this is drfiting off the topic a bit, but hey, I've never let that stand in...

    So if one of your socks wears out, you presumably expect to be provided with a matching replacement free of charge, then. After all, you've paid for the pair of socks once.

    Yes it does. If they hadn't received the accounts it would simply say 'accounts overdue'. If the company is quoted on WebCheck as 'Dissolved' then it no longer exists. If they were running a raffle...

    If you attach a mouthpiece and a bit of hose, it's not far off being a bass.

    It's a shame that it seems the area pieces have to be existing pieces. Would be great to see some new commissions for the areas - it used to happen, Plantaganets was an area commission, as was Salute...

    Er, because they quite like it? I could name a couple of 1st section bands near me that, were they to really put the hammer down, could easily be in the top flight in a year or two. They don't put...

    Andi Cook's written a good piece based on 'Diadem' entitled Ye Morning Stars of Light although it's not really an arrangement of the hymn, more an original concert piece based on it.

    That's an almost impossible question. It has a different answer for every band and every player.

    For example, most elite level bands would (generally) expect a player to commit to pretty much...

    Many thanks Gareth; I may well take you up on that once I've done with the survey results.
  14. Are you a conductor? Can you spare 5 minutes for a survey?

    OK, I have a request for that elite group of human beings - the brass band conductors :) I have created a short survey to investigate conductors' attitudes to new music and I would massively...

    Best conductor I ever played under was Bramwell Tovey in the NYBBW, and I'd be hard pressed to pinpoint exactly why - yes, he's an outstanding musician and genuinely lovely bloke, but he also has...

    The original version of Faure's requiem had lower strings only, with just one solo violin. I remember having a panic as an orchestral librarian when I couldn't find any 1st or 2nd fiddle parts in the...
