(I) Good Tempo. 35 - Good Horns. 49 - Good Bass + Euph. 96 - Troms OK.
149 - Some Clean playing here. Good end.
(II) Safe start. 6 - Cornet copes OK but I would like more expression & shape to the phrases.
30 - Was OK. I feel that the whole movement could have had more shape.
(III) Clean start and some clean playing.
The technical side of the band is good but for me this lacks fire.
Presto is better right to the end.
The performance had a lot to commend and your technique is to a high standard.
Adjudicator:Rob Wiffen OBE
(I) Lumpy start - uneven. 15 - Better - not wholly accurate. 23 - Don't lose impetus with Sost. 35 - Good tempo. 43 - Yes. 49 - Eb Bass - Yes.
56 - Euph's fine. Eb - Yes. 70 - Nice shape. 80 - Loses a bit of impetus.
96 - Troms a bit scrappy. 105 - Okay - Troms a bit heavy in approach.
132 - Links a bit uneven. 141 - Yes. 149 - Yes.
159 - Some loss of tempo but not bad.
(II) Timp articulation a bit heavy - Not keen on triplet work in Horns, Bari's
6 - Soloist fair, but little sense of shape in the phrases. 16 - Same at 16-22. Middle sounds good but rhythmic details above need more definition.
30 - Okay, you keep moving well into 38 - Bass Trom - Don't star.
42 - Fair effort. 47 - Yes. 51 - Triplets still not really defined.
Soloist Okay - intonation suffers a bit.
(III) 17 - Messy. 32 - Yes. 44 - Okay. 73 - Basically fine - a few smudges - could have more definition and lift on syncopated tied quaver to crotchets.
123 - Not clean - Troms entry not good & details rather scrappy - Horns.
167 - Pace drops. 200 - Yes. 242 - Balance - hard to hear semi's.
Presto - A little loud & lumpy. 269 - Much good technical work but as the music progresses towards the climax - much gets obliterated which is a shame.
