With you on this. I thought the piece was fantastic too.
Once the percussion parts had been......ermmm......"sorted" I enjoyed playing it as well. Although I did find some of the percussion writing a little difficult to comprehend in places. But, overall, thoroughly enjoyed it.
Argghhhhhhhhhhhhhh, was hoping it wasn't that noticeable!! I was actually the most composed I have ever been walking onto an area stage (normally get v v v nervous), and then things started to go downhill :shock: The very kind man who was helping moved the timps put his hand on one of the gauges and slipped all the notes down to the bottom. Whoever you were Mr Helper - sorry for snapping at you twice on the stage for doing that, I know you didn't do it on purpose!! Then left music and sticks on the other side of the stage. Held the whole band up. Yeah, yeah yeah, excuses, excuses
Nevermind, it was still great fun and wish we could go and do it again!!!
