Hmmmm... that's a good one.

I hate to be brutally honest....

So I'll just say that it's an arrangement of a very popular hymn, spoiled by some awful chording.

But that's just my opinion. Many people like it.

Worst piece

Be careful here please Ladies and Gentlemen.

We don't want to offend anyone by telling them that their music is the
the worst piece in the world!

Blue Rondo Alla Turk. Jeez.

And an arrangement of Edward Grieg's "Holberg Suite". That's one way to ruin perfectly good music.

But I have heard worse...some arrangements of popular music, for instance.

The Ground Force theme tune

I think that the Ground Force tune is really groovy.... 8)
But I must admit, they play it all the way through the programme it does get a little bit annoying after a while :!:

:roll:

Love Bexc.x

I agree with you Kimmy - haven't played it for years, but I reckon it's brilliant too! 8)

Are you on about a piece called "The Horn", or the instrument itself?


edit: I noticed the subject now... :roll: Sorry....

Prague

I think, after the regionals next year Prague (Championship Section) will be right up there at the top of everyones list.

We played through it once just after we received the music, the vast majority of parts could be sight read and played first time.

What a stinker, I am not looking forward to weeks rehearsing this piece, this is not one to encourage full rehearsals, fun it aint.


RE: Earlier post, Blue rondo a la Turk is a classic, we played it at our last concert and it went down a bomb with the audience, I heard Grimethorpe
play it at Blackpool last month and its even better to listen to than it is to play.
