I am playing this soon as a guest player with a friends band and I was wondering what tMPer's thought of this piece. I don't know it at all!
I hope there are no errors in the sop part as I only get 1 rehersal with the band before the contest in just over a week!!! :shock:WoodenFlugel said:It's a great piece . Massive blow at the end mind, and watch out for the errors in the parts :wink:
Didn't NYBB do it in summer 1993 - with Tovey conducting, concerts in York and Huddersfield T.H.? My third course I think. Anyway, although I haven't had chance to play the new contest version, I remember it being a great piece from back then. That was a great course - also did Essence of Time, London Overture and maybe Resurgam. Definately remember Nick Childs doing the Horovitz concerto and Pantomime.nickjbeaumarisband said:It's a great Piece..played it with the NYBBW in 1991 ( the orginal version )....think it's very descriptive , the metallic factory variation with perc and muted trombone is brilliant , the finale is brilliant too..Bram Tovey not just a brilliant Tubist and conductor but a great composer too
