Mountbatten Festival of Music, Royal Albert Hall, 9 March 2018

The Festival showcased the Pageantry, the outstanding versatility and incredible musicianship. of some of the world’s finest military musicians in a wide range of musical styles, including music from the big screen and superb solo items  Forecast as being 200 instrumentalists – four times the size of the normal RLC concert, but we didn’t expect them to all be playing at once. Loud – especially Corps of Drums (30) + the regular Drummer.

Good range of music and soloists – but had not expected so strong Rock and Roll content or the sobering WW1 Centenary tribute – specially–composed with video. Balanced by the comic Flight of the Bumblebee. David Suchet compering
