We should appreciate the other instruments (and lighten up folks, Wynton was just having his little joke) During those 40 measure rests in orchestra, I love listening to the woodwinds and strings take it away! But Rowuk, think about this - Damnation of Faust, March Racoczy. That beginning fanfare. That would sound ridiculous played softly! So would the last movement of the Faust Ballet Music (Ch. Gounod) Also think of a piece like Black Horse Troop March (did I get that name right?) by Sousa. We want the loud, hit-you-in-the-face trumpet sound there. That's a perfect example. There are some times when we want the trumpet color to show through with great intensity, but like you have said, there is a time and place for that. I think the most important thing is to remember to make that distinction. Best regards everyone,

    true power is given to those that have it all: Loud, soft, sensual, flame thrower, heaven and hell!

    Sousa wrote for cornets, I think the hit-in-the-face is exactly what is not called for there.

    My only point is, here is a lady with the power to tame the at least partly pubescent beast. That is something that I (with 4 children) can REALLY relate to! RESPECT!

    My favorite loud is Saturn from Holsts Planets. My favorite "support role" is the second movement of Holsts Suite in Eb for band
    Whenever I feel blue, I start breathing again.
