Adjudicators Remarks

Melvin White

1. Careful opening – soloist displays nice style (flugel? intonation) Dynamics noted (was ff … up too big?) One or two minor probs but nice shape and dynamics show well.

2. Nice Euph (cornets a shade too loud?) Flugel more warmth please but quite safe. Some really nice shapes here – a degree of tenderness & simplicity. Really nice solo cornet & lovely changeover – only poco … A tempo – nice touches – semi quavers not quite together to [9] Rit nice touches. > could be more to 10. But nice touches. Good movement.

3. Good start – (horn un-tuneful low d!) A degree of stability although your desire to have fun cause some problems with quavers. Nice allegro, good band sound. Mp dim could be more noticeable.

Overall a very good performance

Dennis Wilby
