This is the third time I have redone this number and it will be the last. The hard parts are only in the first and second trumpet parts. Range is not a problem but a short section in the second trumpet part needs to be practiced for it uses the third valve more than usual. It would be good to spend some time on the Clarke Technical Studies book, page 9, #35 and #40 to work out this passage. I can’t wait to see how fast we will be playing this by the end of the season!
