Since finishing the piece at the beginning of February Corsham Wind band have had a couple of rehearsals with my new piece, Telomere, that they will premiere at the Mid Somerset Festival in Bath on Friday 4 March 2016.
I was present at the first rehearsal and was really impressed with the players mature and positive approach towards playing a new piece. The thrill of hearing musicians play a new piece for the first time is hard to beat. By the end of the rehearsal I felt happy that the piece was in great, creative hands and was excited about returning for a rehearsal at the end of the month.
I’m just about to go in and hear the piece again after a few weeks away from rehearsal and I’m intrigued to hear how the preparations are coming along.
