Class - 20th January

It was lovely to see (nearly) everyone again after the Christmas break, and we got straight back into the swing of things with one of the new arrangements for this term - 'Wedding Day at Troldhaugen' by Grieg. It's great to be able to position ourselves in our old familiar set-up for rehearsals...and with the lovely new keyboard (thank you George & Joan!), we have a more balanced sound.

Small group items:
  • Scarlatti 'Sonata in F Major' - George, Kath, Diana, Margaret & Joan
  • Albinoni 'Adagio' - Judy, Theresa, Dermot & Imogen
  • Dusek 'Partita' & Tartini 'Two Sonatas' - Annabel, Polly & Mike
  • Busoni 'Duo' & Doppler 'Fantaisie sur des motifs Hongrois' - Heather, Helen & Angela
