Broken Consort

Class - 7th July

There was a touch of deja vu about this evening's class...the final rehearsal before next week's concert. We even had a small audience for our 'dress rehearsal', of family members and one very confused gentleman who didn't seem to know why he was there! They seemed to enjoy our large ensemble items, and we now know that if we want louder applause, we need to play faster!

Small group items:
  • 'General Radetsky goes Cuckoo' by Michaelson - Heather, Annie, Helen & Mike
  • Telemann Trio Sonata in F Major - George, Imogen, Margaret & Joan
  • 'Trois Duos de Mendelssohn et Lachner' - Judy, Diana & Angela
  • 'Summertime' by George Gershwin - Penny, George, Annabel, Kath, Theresa, Polly, Mike, Margaret & Joan
  • Trio Sonata in D Minor by Quantz - Annie, Annabel, Margaret & Joan
  • 'Shimmering Flutes' by John Cacavas - Annie, Judy, Penny & Imogen
  • Trio Sonata in G Major by C.P. E. Bach - Diana, Kath & Imogen
  • 'Salut d'Amour' by Elgar - Penny, Theresa & Mike
  • 'Pavane pour une infante defunte' by Ravel - Heather, Polly & Angela
  • Telemann Trio Sonata in D Minor - George, Judy & Angela
Phew! I think that must be a record for the most number of pieces rehearsed in one class!
