Congratulations to all prize winners at Buxton.
I was a little disappointed though that many bands had the same idea and trotted out their regional test peice again. I think that was a bit unimaginitive and taking the 'safe' option.
Its not very good for the audience hearing the same peice over and over again when they have come to listen to an own choice/entertainments type contest . I was quite disappointed as I was hoping to hear some variety.
Not the case in the top section - there was not a single Tristan Encounters or Coventry Variations on offer.
Sorry, should have made my observations clearer. I was really talking about the 2nd section where 4 out of the 7 chose to do Kaleidescope.
I must say though, that the winners, Diggle, played Kaleidescope brilliantly - the best that I have ever heard it played, and thoroughly deserved their 1st place.
Roy Roe congratulated all 7 bands on the high standard of competition.
