We have honor band this weekend and one of the pieces calls for a ";loosing cymbal."; I've not heard of such. The piece calling for that cymbal is ";Puszta,"; by Jan Ver De Roost. Anyone know what that is?
I heard from Mr. Van Der Roost himself. It should have read ";loose cymbal,"; which he intends as a suspended cymbal.
Take care, Neal

I have NO IDEA about that piece. It could it be that Ver De Roost was thinking hi-hat, or something like that but the Dutch/French/German translation was not done correctly? You might try and contact him directly:
