Class - 15th September

A new term usually means new music, but this evening we 'revisited' an old favourite...a selection of movements from J. S. Bach's 'Christmas Oratorio'. We first played it in 2005, and will be performing it, along with some new arrangements, in our concert at the end of term. We also welcomed a new member this evening (Anya on clarinet), and we may have another couple of prospective members coming for a taster session soon!

Small group items:
  • Concerto No. 5 in C Major by Pepusch - George, Heather, Penny, Diana, Margaret & Imogen
  • Trio Sonata in G Minor by Boismortier - Polly, Mike & Angela
  • Trio Sonata in G Major by Telemann - Judy, Kath & Joan
  • 'Caprice for Clarinets' by Clare Grundman - Helen, Theresa, Dermot & Anya

I played Caprice for Clarinets at junior school and loved it! My poor teacher had to endure my repeated requests for a reprise, until a couple of years ago we had a reunion and she relented. It was just as good as I remembered it.
