What 4BarsRest thought

Just an extract from www.4barsrest.com who seemed to like us a bit. Special congratulations to Matt on timps, Rachael on Sop, Tom on Euph and the “well balanced” cornet section.

Drive and control

University of Warwick got off to a decent start and demonstrated drive and control in the quicker sections. The slow section seemed a little stilted but all the solo lines were safe and the band returned to top form in the reprise for a romp to the finish with great dynamic contrasts and a relentless pulse to the music.

A major contributor to this was the timpani player who was top class and the last eight bars or so was particularly exciting. The soprano and euphonium players gave excellent accounts and a well balanced cornet section was also a feature. Just the odd lapses in ensemble and lack of flow in the slow movement may have cost them a point or two.

These three bands will represent the Midlands at the finals, and if they perform at this level they must be in with a chance of doing very well.
