Helen V said:I've heard two different versions of "Quasi Pavillons nen l'air", both something to do with the top part of the medieval tents which is bell-like in shape and has a flag on.
One version i've heard is that this means "bells in the air" and the other version is "like flags waving in the air", both slightly different translations!
I'm assuming both these refer to the style and not to the choreography of the piece! :?
Glad i'm not playing it, i haven't got a clue what the thing means, my french barely gets past ordering a drink!
MajorMorgan said:It's an instruction usually written in French Horn parts which means 'bells up'. In other words, that section should be pretty strident and cut across the rest of the band.
We always play with our bells up , and are pretty strident, aren't we :?: :wink: :lol:yorkie19 said:
