    As the title of the thread states, I cannot find a recording anywhere of Prelude and Scherzo by Ernest Williams. I have to audition the piece in November and I could really use a listen, but I cannot find it anywhere.

    You wouldn't happen to be in Rhode island would you? And the issue is in how the six eight is divided. It just makes no sense

    Yep, I'm from Portsmouth. And yeah, I'm still terrible at reading 6/8. And the most annoying thing is the auditions are the same day as Umass Band day, so were going straight to umass from the audition.

    The cornet and piano score is located in the Ernest S. Williams collection at the University of Maryland Library, College Park. Maryland vis: "Williams, Ernest S. Prelude and Scherzo. N.d. New York: Ernest Williams School of Music, 1941. Print. (Cornet and Piano) series 5 box 3 folder 28" To locate this just minutes ago, all I had to do was Google his name via internet. Quite a curricula vitae for him.

    Sadly much of his data was lost in a fire at his summer camp.

    Yeah I'm pretty sure I'm not getting in, I'm still shaky on my scales and I have no idea about my friggin audition piece. And the audition's in 3 days. But yeah the umass music is pretty awesome XD
