Re: already started looking to concert season
Played Sinfonia IV a few years ago. I have to wait another year before I can do it again. Can you do Abracadabra without bassoons? I thought that was a "No-No" in Texas. I played a Ticheli piece last year and was told that Ticheli's music needs to be played with the proper full instrumentation.
Abracadabra and Sinfonia VI?
6 decent flutes, 1 area player
12 clarinets, (2 area kids)
2 bass clarinets (1 stud, the other enjoys band)
strong sax section top to bottom
7 trumpet (3 of which are trumpet holders)
solid low brass
weak tuba players (just plain lazy)
Very strong percussion
So...looking for a couple of grade 3's that can be performed with no horns or the horn parts can be easily covered.
Please help. Thanks
