Had another good day at Birmingham - really enjoyed the test-piece. Personally I had a top 3 of BAYV, Grimethorpe and Dyke - in that order. BAYV had everything for me - including excellent soloists, while Grimethorpe's performance had that something different - a real swagger - and to me it made so much sense. Dyke were Dyke, I just didn't have the same feeling of 'wow' as I had from the other two. I must also mention the excellent Euph playing by Hepworth's solo euph - superb. On a side note, anyone had the misfortune of buying a short score? Thankfully I didn't, but I did sneak a look at my mate's - now there's a con if ever there was one. £5 for something you could barely read - having squeezed four pages of the score to each page of A4 - and then you got to the centre of thing - only to be greeted by 4 sides of adverts - in the middle of the piece! It was difficult enough trying to follow the music with it being as small as it was, but having to faff around because of adverts was taking the proverbial I think.
