    Toughest music piece

    We recently got a new piece of music in our folders that is pretty difficult for me. (Thought this might be a good idea for a thread.)

    "Tulsa" [A Symphonic Portrait in Oil] (Original score by Maurice Ford - transcribed by Don Gillis).

    It's in the key of 'C' for the most part, but with numerous accidentals, triplet 16th notes and 32nd notes, it's been eating my lunch in places. Anyone else ever played this piece?

    Tulsa - Don Gillis

    What piece 'eats your lunch'?
