    King-Ling, not sure what you had to say regarding Markus Breuss, but in my experience he is a top notched musician. I love the way he thinks outside of the box. He and I have communicated extensively through initial contacts established here on TM. How I hope to meet (and play) with him some day.

    By he way, tomorrow evening, I will be getting the chance to meet with Tim Hagans. I am so excited about his upcoming performance at Gilly's, the club that he has said, help launch his career.

    I would say that the military transcriptions of these great works for brass band are some of the finest arrangement jobs ever performed! They are still played today and thus have survived the test of time! Yes, they knew and very much understood the flügelhorn!

    Many of these arrangements were written before the first world war!

    ...yeah, it´s possible.......I like brass bands, but I don´t know much about them (specially german brass bands I hadn´t the chance to hear often)
    it´s noteworthy to state, that there are many different schools : a german brass band is not like an american one, and a british (the worlds protype ?) is very different from an indian brass band.
    I had the pleasure to record the Shyam-Brass-Band in Jabalpur (madhya pradesh - India) and they play -practically always- louder than ten punk-bands toghether (hard to record them..)


    From the 1974 album The Philosophy of the Fluegelhorn.
    Released by Japo Records, Germany.
