    Florentiner March

    This march by Julius Fucik (arr. Mahew Lake) is a great march. We just got this one in our folders about 2 weeks ago. It's a 2-page march with a great euphonium counter melody.

    I found this link of Grimethorpe Colliery B.B. playing the brass band arrangment as part of the Movie, "Brassed Off".

    I did cymbals for that in University.

    The other euph player thought it was quite good.

    The cymbal part totally pwned!

    I played a few times both in university in the concert band and with a brass band. Its always a treat to play it. The one time, I was given the bassoon part to play which was fun to play.

    For a brief time the Coast Guard Band was without any bassoons while we were waiting to complete the enlistment process for the new players. During that time I got to cover some pretty cool parts. I just read the entire bassoon part if it seemed to be important. It was fun to play familiar music but see different notes.

    My high school band director was/is a big fan of European-style marches. We did this one once, it was a blast. The trombonists next to me were big fans too.
