    Hey Manny,
    Have you ever played anything by Louis Spohr? I'm taking a festival audition at the end of next month and the list includes his Violin Concerto No. 8 in A Minor, Op. 47. I'm not even 100% sure that there is a trumpet part on it because they just copied and pasted the general rep list onto the audition list.
    Thanks,
    Jimi

    Jimi,

    I recall playing a wind ensemble piece by Spohr long ago in school. It was a piece that featured the clarinet but not in the title of the work. I believe he's writen a ton of chamber music, little of any of it memorable.

    Spohr was the finest of the second rate composers that lived in the shadow of Mozart's works and I have never played a single piece by him in either Seattle ofr here at the MO.
