    Starting off a new thread to cover the RLPO 2015-16 concert season, launched last night in style by Vasily Petreno in his usual good humour. A very popular programme, featuring the Rachmaninov Second Piano concerto but was given an immaculate performance by Ji Liu, who I think quite wisely did...

    Hi, there - I started a thread in the strings forum to ask people how they 'got into' playing their instrument. But I love hearing other people's life experiences, so maybe you woodwind and brass players could tell us how you became 'hooked' on playing your instrument, and what sort of music you...
  3. Today's Composers
    well i have started this in sibelius due to an open commission from a brass quartet (meaning it is just a request to any composer, not me in specific), and the quartet wanted a midi playback so i decided that i might as well just composed directly onto sibelius. feedback is great as usual.

    Okay, so I've posted this question before with no viable answer, only speculation, so here goes another attempt. What I can say is that the song I'm thinking of has appeared in three different instances that I can recall: -first, it was featured in the TV show "Friends" in the episode "The One...
