Adjudicators Remarks

Henry The Fifth:

A confident opening – good control + dynamics [CC] Works well [DD] Sop rather flat on the D. Semis nicely done - Close is bold + has good conviction.

The New Colonial:

Steady tempo - Compact opening – but I feel the march loses a bit of its swagger. Good dynamic contrasts are heard. Lead to trio – a shade untidy. This soon settles – but one spot of tuning spoil. FF section – good lower lines. Sop obbligato - confidently played. Repeat not as secure as the first time. Sop doesn’t quite come through on this repeat. Close is compact.

My Love is Like a Red Red Rose:

Opens well – just watch the tuning please [A] soloist plays with good sound + style. Accompaniment struggle with their tuning. Well done soloist to [D] – tasteful playing – ensemble – controlled [E]. Don’t let the band overshadow the soloist please [F] - Good solo lines – ensemble to follow Meno Moso fine. <>? Close is well done.

The Mill in the Dale:

A musical opening – then the tuning suffer at [A] – Effective moments [B] Lots of fun. Allegretto – This could all be neater - I don’t hear all the detail. – I enjoyed the vocals and it all worked well. D.S. – better details this time. Close is fair.

Caliph of Bagdad:

Pleasant horn + ensemble to open. Repeat, Sop a shade flat. [A] This could be smoother. Cadenza take a little .. fine. [B] fair. Close a bit lumpy. Alla - why so loud – it’s only p and I love much of the busy detail. [D] is better [E] forceful – but this is stylish now and not so untidy. [G] watch the balance please [H] moves along in good style. [I] exciting and there is a good sense of rhythm to [J] – well contrasted – and all goes well to [L] – [M] (+3) not quite in tune – but you settle again (+1) winds up well [O]needs a bit of clarity. Presto to close is effective and again have good contrast to the end.

A few spots of imbalance + tuning spoiled in too many places – but a varied programme which had good contrasts.

Well done soloist and thank you
