However, real temperature at outlet from ASMF is significantly higher.
It is evident that for getting high level of the metal oxidation at the outlet it is necessary to increase flow of oxygen injected into ASMF for oxidation of steel impurities (in addition to oxygen necessary for combustion of fuel).
High degree of the metal oxidation at outlet was registered in those cases, when flow of oxygen, injected into ASMF, exceeded the one necessary according to stoichiometry of fuel combustion reactions.
Somewhat more surprising was a performance of Mendelssohn's Italian Symphony directed from the violin, especially as the ASMF
makes no claim to be a period band.
This really needed Curtis to conduct in order to wring out the music's suppressed emotion, but there was effective empathy between the ASMF
and soloist Sarah Williamson, her tones appropriately autumnal, despite distracting body language.
Chorus gave light and meaning to Mozart's counterpoint (the semiquaver runs in the Kyrie were thrillingly precise) and produced some wonderful tonal contrasts, from the powerful outbursts of Rex tremendae to the heart-wrenching Agnus Dei.
Chorus sang lightly, persuasively, with two well-chosen soloists; orchestral horns brought all the nocturnal magic of Mendelssohn's scene-painting, and the Wedding March was unsentimentally brisk and muscular.
