    Hmm... I dunno, don't really like Stravinsky that much

    As far as I can remember you play a string instrument right? Anyhows, there's this really cool I've played with an ensemble in school, and it's the Mendelssohn Octet. It really is such a nice piece and maybe it would be something for you...

    No! I play sax, piano, clarinet and flute!

    But speaking of the Octet, I studied a bit of it a few weeks ago, it's nice. First violin part goes high tho!

    Lol. The only piece I really like by Mozart is his Requiem. Our choral society sang it last Thursday and it was soooo beautiful... :love:

    What do you think of Finzi? I'd never heard of him until we sang this huge Lo' the full final sacrifice and God is gone up in the choir last thursday in the same concert as well... absolutely love those pieces... and the first is actually a pretty difficult piece... goes up really high in the first sops :eek:

    I love the Requiem, supposed to be singing it in May, but haven't been to rehearsals! oops!

    I only know a few of Finzi's clarinet works which are good. Don't know much of his other stuff.

    Who else do you like?

    I only like certain movements of his requiem, but then he only wrote the first movement fully. I think his sketches got as far as the lacrimosa (which is one of my favourites) - the first 8 movements are of siginifacntly higher quality than the others imo. I especially like the first, second, 3rd, 5th, 7th and 8th.

    Attached that piano piece from before. It's for mother's day so i really need a name quickly!!

    any Sousa fans here?

    I'm a big fan of his marches, favourite would be Hands Across The Sea.
