One of my college professors played trumpet in the AF band. The sightreading for his audition was from a band arrangement of Scheherazade. In the original version this excerpt is in the 4th mvmt in the clarinet part, the really fast triple figure right before the mvmt goes into the fast one-beat pattern, towards the end. Not too easy! They asked him to play it faster 4 tomes before he broke. He got the job because he was the only one they needed to ask a fourth time.
