Manny... A question about the articulation of the Petroushka Balerina's Dance came up in our orchestral excerpts class the other day. At the end of the sixteenth note passages, do you slur into, or tongue the written g (second line) at the end? The last copy I looked at had a slur and a staccato mark on that g. It seems like you could make a case for that note belonging to either the slured phrase or the tongued phrase following it. Soooo, how do you prefer to play it (or maybe, how have you been asked to play it!) and how do you recommed preparing it for an audition situation. I've practiced it both ways, but which do you think is the one to present first, knowing you probably won't play it again? And do you use C trumpet or a smaller horn? Thanks! Jason.
