1. March: Superlative
Flowing start but not a lot of detail and Bass Drum very evident, but good dynamic contrasts.
Lots of semi's lost
E: Untidy start then flows OK. That Bass drum irritates.
Nice to hear a new March. DC much the same and has a nice flow to it.
Needed more detail early on (maybe accoustic?)
2. Cornet Solo: Oblivion
Lots of detail noted with good balance and nice soloist played with taste and style
Accompaniments have a lovely sound and so well balanced and tasteful.
Percussion well integrated.
Very good Soloist. Well done and Thanks.
3. Test Piece: Partita
I. Good start but low end not clean but flows nicely and lots of detail emerges. Odd mis-pitch into 64.
76+: Some looseness here. Also 88+ could be cleaner.
96+ Good Trombones and all do well and Band detail also evident.
141+: Good and good dynamics observed. 163/4 Untidy Cornets. Flows to close.
II. Lots of detail here and Super Solo Cornet. Other soloists do well, just a blip in Baritone.
Again good Trombones. 30+ Good detail in accompaniments. 38+ Well balanced and good dynamic contrasts.
51+ Played with taste. Good close.
III. Lots of detail here. 22+ Well done Solo Cornet and Soprano. 58+ Well negotiated.
73 A touch untidy then OK but general balance is good.
123 Lots of detail. 148+ Again, all is well negotiated. Well done Euphonium and Soprano.
220+ 227+ 248 All flows nicely and Presto very well balanced.
277 - 282 - 290 Lots of detail and flows to a super close.
Just odd untidy moments early on then lots of very good playing.
March was a touch untidy.
Overall, some very good playing and Soloist was super.
