I feel inclined to say it was really nice to not have to have a mexican wave etc this year and we acually had some entertainment between bands and results. Personally have to say it really made my day listening to the british army band. For a band of such talent they produced an excellent show whilst obviously not getting too focussed on the music. Again, i saw owen farr this afternoon who really was impressive and it goes without saying that David Childs will/would/will have been fantastic tonight. However, (no offence intended, well not much) the 'Cornet Virtuoso', who i'd never heard of before seemed to completely defeat the objective in my opinion. 1) the Music the Band and Owen played were enjoyable and listenable 2) They were recognisable names, especially necessary for the period between the 4th section and 3) Playing the piece without making a mess. Now don't get me wrong, when it was right it was some sublime playing but splitting middle register notes in solitaire just doesn't seem to fit the word 'Virtuoso'. Could someone please define to me what a Cornet/Horn/Euph/trom Virtuoso entails please.
