Pieces due for a comeback


Just wondered if anyone thinks can think of some pieces that we all used to play but don't anymore that should make a comeback?

what about light cavelry or magic flute, or we did our own arrangement of hawaii 5 0, but I've put it back in the library now! hootenanny always goes down well despite it being a bit old hat and corny. 12th st rag deserves an airing every now and then. oohh I could go on and on !! the list is endless :)

Ah, Nabucodonosor. Love that one too....

This probably will end up merging with the "Cheesy Music" thread, but I'd like to see back in the concert programme:

Amparito Roca
Way Out West
Life on Mars

And in the contest department... Scheherazade.


Amparito Roca takes me back to my early days of banding with Hadstock Village Silver Band on the Cambs/Essex border. All those village fetes!

Other music from that era due a re-run must surely include

Bouquet de Paris
All those musical selections! My Fair Lady et al
Spread a little Happiness

Enough nostalgia - I have to get to band!

All the best

Yeah well, I have to admit Hootenanny was fun at the time!

Amparito Roca...another :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock:
We had a summer of playing that first at every concert when I was a kid. I used to hate it coz I split the G's every time! One time I played the loudest and nicest top-C I have ever played in my life (yes definately the best as they still sound crap now!) at the beginning of the piece :oops: :oops: :oops: :oops:

The pieces I would like to see back (occassionally that is) are Amazing Grace, Cornet Carillion and Rhapsody in Brass. For a Test Piece it has to be Suite Gothique :D

We've recently dusted the cobwebs off Scheherazade and Suite Gothique for a couple of run-throughs in rehearsals - both excellent pieces. The last movement of Suite Gothic is total class imo.

yeah...i really like the 2nd mvt as well...infact the whole piece is nice :D Another test piece which was really nice but has probably been put in the closet is Narina Suite. It was used in the 3rd section regionals 3/4 years ago and it was just complete class!

How's about dusting off a few yellowing copies of the odd Rimmer piece. How's about "Caliph of Baghdad" - kinda topical...

Or Autumn Leaves? er, not Rimmer but I like it 8)


we have been doing the caliph, and I think it is great after the horn solo is seen to...I wasn't very good at it!!!
