Broken Consort

A 'broken consort' is an ensemble made up of instruments from more than one family, for example, a group featuring both string and wind instruments.

Class - 31st March

It was all systems go last night for the final rehearsal before our concert next week. The large ensemble pieces are sounding great, and I think we're all looking forward to (but perhaps a little nervous of) having some new audience members to perform to.

Small group items:
  • 'Alice' (she's lost the Mad Hatter!) by Geoffry Russell-Smith - Helen, Theresa & Dermot
  • Finger Trio Sonata in G Minor - George, Imogen, Margaret & Joan
  • 'Rondeau' by Purcell - Annie, Penny, Diana, Kath & Polly
  • 'Divertimento' by Paul Harris - Heather, Annabel, Helen, Mike & Angela
  • Telemann Trio Sonata in F Major - Imogen, Diana, Margaret & Joan
  • Corelli Sonata da Chiesa - Annabel, Polly & Mike
  • 'Berceuse' by Faure - Heather, Annie & Penny
  • 'The Arrival of the Queen of Sheba' by Handel - Angela & Imogen
  • 'Duo' by Busoni - Heather, Helen & Angela

Phew! I'm not sure we've ever managed to get through so much in one evening!
