The ironic thing is... when the dissertation didn't work as an attachment I abandoned the post- I didn't hit "post" and didn't imagine that it was here. Then when I realised it was (after Ken's comment) I posted to "please delete this" but for some reason that didn't stick (so doesn't show up in the thread????)
Yes, there are already a number of good resources about this work.
Yes, it's not any harder than any number of contemporary pieces (in fact, for Auckland Chamber orchestra I've played pieces that I'd categorise as "harder" than this one...) but one of the things that makes it a bit sticky is that you sort of end up having to deal with things out of your control - crazy flute players, strings who may slow down their slides etc, horns who can't pay (ugh), a conductor who doesn't have sensitivity OR who dogmatically wants to stick to "his/her" tempo regardless of your issues can create insecurity and possibly disaster (maybe you CAN play it super fast, but get a bit off balance... a little relaxation at the baton end of things can save your bacon when that happens).
The Zimmermann clip is interesting, but at the end of the 30min you're not really that much wiser - I like this guy, and he plays very musically, but the clip isn't about MUSIC or interpretation, and that's what this solo is so often lacking (in the "get by by any means necessary" situations we end up performing in).
I doubt I'll be brave enough to put my rendition up on youtube, let's see....
