    Maybe you've heard of this?

    For auditions this fall, one of the excerpts I have to prepare is a piece by Ginastera called "Malamiso" (sp?). I have never heard of this piece and was wondering if you knew of any recordings of it. Also, the parts that I have to play are rather high, and I was wondering if, in an audition, it's ok to change mouthpieces in order to make things a bit easier. Thanks.

    My guess is that the piece you're thinking of is actually spelled "Malambo". The stick on the letter "b" got turned into an "i", etc.

    It's a challenging peice that is part of a suite named "Estancia" from the ballet of the same name by Alberto Ginastera. The Malambo is the final dance and there are a bunch of solos that are rather ferocious in character. That's why I don't generally play it on piccolo; the notes are easier but the character is too polite-sounding for my taste.

    So, maybe, a you suggest, a mouthpiece change is the way to go. Don't let it get too easy, though. You might lose control and do a lot of overshooting.

    Yeah! Just played that last concert with the wind ensemble; I had trumpet up the part and it's all repeated G's on top of the staff as far as the eye can see! I had my assistant trade off...we called it "The G song".

    It was really a fun piece; quite fast. If you look on iTunes for Estancia, Malambo or Danza Final, you might find a recording.
