Re: Cutting horns from 4 to 2 parts
Rewrite the 1st trombone part or euphonium part for horn and cut all four of them. They add next to nothing.
If you want to (for some reason) have those horn parts, have your horns play 1st and 2nd and rewrite 3rd and 4th for an alto sax and tenor sax if you have the spare bodies.
If I was cutting some horn parts from a traditional upbeat march from 4 parts to 2 parts what would you keep and what would you dump?
