Show: Fluid States

  • Four Sea Interludes from Peter Grimes
  • Sinfonia Antarctica

The Good: Very nice hornline sound from the backfield at the beginning. I'm getting more power from the hornline so far as compared to Esperanza. Very nice job from the soprano soloist playing backfield during the ballad. Very difficult drum book. This is a strong drumline in terms of playing ability, but I have a hard time hearing them, as if their sound stops at the front sideline.

The Bad: I could use more drumline. They seem to be lacking in projection and power compared to the hornline. Sopranos do not sound good when they're on their own, very strident and out of tune. Imbalance in the low brass to begin the ballad portion of the show. Hornline is not in tune, either.

The Ugly: Sopranos - very sloppy, strident, and hard to listen to.

Overview: I'm not sure how this show got past Esperanza. The horns aren't in tune and unbalanced and the percussion is hard to hear. I'm assuming the visual scores must have made a difference. The music is enjoyable, but I can't get into the show as much as I'd like to because of the technical issues.
