What do you expect to hear? The Carnival of Venice of course! Is that what I want to hear? NO! Why do soloists trot it out repeatedly in concerts, CDs and broadcasts? It's been played since the year dot in umpteen versions. And isn't it time Share My Yoke were given a little break before it's run into the ground? With so much unimaginative repetition, non-brass band folk might be forgiven for thinking there's a dearth of material available to band soloists.
