    Besson may be the Stradivarius of euphoniums, but if the Geneva is the horn of your heart, which it sounds like it/she is, make it/her the horn that you keep. There is no shame in that.

    The Planets may not be, strictly speaking, a brass ensemble piece, but I have enjoyed every arrangement of Jupiter that I have heard. Mars does have some meaty brass parts. Personally I find...

    Yeah, I was wondering if the spots on the bell could be cleaned off or not. Try some Windex and a soft cloth on them.

    I also would be interested in the details of your trumpet. Send me a private...
