    I worked on this arrangment in university (tuba player), got my butt handed to me time and again. Eventually we pulled it off, and 3 weeks later heard the city's Symphony Orchestra play it. The professional wind & brass players of the orchestra had just as hard a time, heard...

    1-2 clipped notes and a few wonky rhythms. Not the easiest piece in the world, but when you pull it off, man is it ever good!

    I'm having to play this in orchestra and it is miserable. The trumpet parts drain your chops so fast and is full of ridiculous range and skips. Not a fun playing experience.
