    A few days ago I greatly enjoyed this piece by a composer I had never heard of:

    How many concerts do you play per year? What makes this particularly challenging? If the pieces are relatively short and mostly from the 18th and 19th centuries it probably won’t take too much effort for the players to learn new repertoire. Often enough orchestral players have played the same repertoire so much that little to no rehearsal is needed before a concert, so it’s good to make orchestras actually do some interesting work from time to time.
