Brass players shine in competitionFebruary 5th, 2016
Kent-Dodsworth Brass Competition 2016
Six competitors took to the podium this year, and were adjudicated by Mr. Oliver Fitzgerald-Lombard. James B opened with his Chanson Bohéme played with care and style on his euphonium, and was followed by James H who gave us a big, bright performance of Boyce’s Trumpet Voluntary. Joe played a very dextrous Jam Bourée on his tuba and Ben played the longest work of the evening, the first movement of Neruda’s Concerto in E flat. Peter payed the only acapella piece of the evening, a stylish account of Reflections, and Owen closed with an exciting account of the famous Purcell Trumpet Tune. Our adjudicator, himself a professional French Horn player, spoke of the importance of tuning, and of playing stylistically, and awarded the second prize to Peter and first prize to Ben for his Neruda.
