Well done kerwintootle; I heard your performance via the Internet; outstanding. :D


Friday 23rd January 2004
Third Programme of 'Brass in Concert' from Spennymoor

title: ‘Gethsemane’
artist: Scottish Co-op Band/Soprano Cornet Soloist: Alexandra Kerwin
composer: Andrew Lloyd Webber
publisher: Musikverlag Frank, Switzerland
arranger: Ray Farr
 
Thanks very much John. It is a very tricky solo for the sop that starts on a low g. Then there's some fireworks in the middle. Hard enough just to play the solo but Nick Childs also wanted me to walk around the stage and play in different positions of the stage and without music. Phew! Now. where is the icon of someone blowing their own trumpet? :oops:
 
Blimey. Just heard it on the internet - absolutely corking! Definitely worth blowing your own trumpet, and sop, and cornet about, I'd say! :D

Yea not an easy one. Played it through with the band a couple months ago. Very good to straighten out the lower register at the start though :lol: Not a bad solo though
