This is my rehearsal copy of our Area piece: Berlioz’s La Carnaval Romain. I’ve been moved onto second cornet for this and rather enjoying the experience, although I have to sometimes think what the heck those notes under the stave are. Can you spot the bottom G#?

The instruction “Dave is turning” is there to remind me to turn the page so that my second cornet compatriot Bren can play a pianissimo bottom D in the next bar.

It’s a great, if rather ancient, piece of music, with some big tunes and lots of places for musical accidents. A good choice for the area I think

    Bottom G#? There’s another two and a half octaves above that! What tempo’s that soot-fall in?

    It’s pretty slow at that point, thankfully. I do get to use my third valve just a little bit too much along there though šŸ˜‰

    Cracking piece of music. Have you heard it before?
