    Great piece, very stretching, any wind band with players around UK Grade 4+ - 5 should try this. It makes brains in my band hurt so give it a go. Fantastic music.

    This piece of Music is wonderful!! It has such emotion and it keeps on the edge of your seats for the whole song. I had the pleasure of playing this song at Interlochen Arts Camp. I am in 9th grade and the music looks hard but once you get used...

    to it, it becomes easy. I had a ball playing this piece and I want to play it next year!!!
