Taking on two new works must have presented a great challenge to the band.
First, Ravel's Bolero which features a number of solo pieces -an opportunity for those musicians involved to demonstrate how good they are.
This was followed by The Gods of Olympus by Óscar Navarro Rojo - a monumental piece in ten parts. At times this was demanding both of the band and the listener with complex sections that involved a variety of novel instruments.
