Just a few comments from a concert at The Bridgewater Hall, Manchester - reviewer Malcolm Wood
The National Youth Brass Band of Great Britain under the leadership of Artistic Director, Bramwell Tovey shone like a constellation of stars.
A performance of vibrant energy and admirably tight ensemble in Peter Graham’s Shine as the Light.
The elegiac ‘Nocturne’ displayed a loving tenderness that belied their youthful years….
The symbiotic musical relationship between MD and band was clear for everyone to appreciate; players responding immediately to his nuanced encouragement to produce quite remarkable music making.
