2012 West Wales Contest Fishguard (Section 2), Bro Gwaun School, fishguard - 06-Oct-12
|Music Piece(s):||Academic Festival Overture|
|Notes:||Subdued and detailed to begin, setting the scene well. Nice change of style before B, well handled. An excellent climax after B too and the quiet close to C is neat and confident.Some super lyricism at C, beautifully done in cornets. D displays a big band sound with more detail at E. Maybe a bit overdone before G and some tuning issues in solo cornets.
Good speed at animato and some characterful playing here. K is really well-realised too - majestic and impressive sound. Muted troms work well into L too and basses play with a lot of detail evident.
The different characters you find in each theme are all impressive, and consistently delivered. Great solo cornet before P. Bit too short for me at Maestoso, but only a small thing. Ending shows more commitment to detail.
Overall, an excellent performance - very disciplined, very characterful, very well-delivered. Well done and thank you!
