Malcolm Arnold Quintet

This message was contributed by Jim Bulger on 20/2/06.

Hi guys,
my group is currently preparing for a big competition and would love you advice. In the first round we're playing the Malcolm Arnold quintet second movement (right after Canadian Brass' arrangement of Amazing Grace, wish me luck!!!) and we're struggling to get under the skin of it musically. Some of us really want to play it as slow as possible and try and get the angst and pain that we see in the music, others want to follow the tempo directions that M A gives which makes that movement, by nature, alot lighter. I know that this is a piece you're all familiar with and so would appreciate your thoughts. We are all huge fans of Fine Arts and would respect any help and thoughts that you could give.
Thank you in advance,
Jim Bulger
