The Durham County Brass Band Association Contest
2nd February 2003
Journey into Freedom
Rhapsody for Brass Band
Conducted by Graham O'Connor
A very confident start - Tempo a little up but it works well.
Stylish playing to 8 - 10 played well
11 - Good Soprano before G.P.
This sounds full of vitality to 17 - Dynamics all in place.
Andante con Espressione - Heartfully played by all concerned.
Excellent Eb Bass at 18 also Trombone at 19.
Cornet/Soprano not together on Allegro Scherzando.
Fine Stringendo to 25
Lento - a good 5 bars developing into a super Andante and a magnificent close.
I enjoyed this performance despite it's one or two uneasy moments.
