Summer Music @ Polly's

Our summer music sessions came to an end last night, with a most enjoyable evening hosted by Polly - thank you! We played a lovely (and varied!) selection of old (and not so old) favourites, then devoured a delicious feast, but the best thing about the evening was seeing Joan (and George!) up and about, and playing piano again!

Here's what we played:
  • 'The Great Gate of Kiev' from 'Pictures at an Exhibition - Mussorgsky (Arr. H. Brammer)
  • 'Serenade' - Bourgeois (Arr. H. Brammer)
  • Andantino from 'The Trout Quintet' - Schubert (Arr. H. Brammer)
  • Theme from 'Blackadder' - Goodall (Arr. H. Brammer)
  • 'Fiddler on the Roof' Medley - Harnick & Bock (Arr. van der Goot)
  • 'My Bonny Boy' from 'English Folk Song Suite' - Vaughan Williams (Arr. H. Brammer)
  • 'Rondo' from 'Suite in B Minor' - J. S. Bach (Arr. H. Brammer)
  • 'Capriol Suite' - Warlock (Arr. H. Brammer)
  • 'Promenade' from 'Pictures at an Exhibition' - Mussorgsky (Arr. H. Brammer)
  • 'Brandenburg Concerto No. 3 - Allegro' - J. S. Bach (Arr. H. Brammer)

Just a quick reminder before I go - term starts in two weeks (on September 15th). Looking forward to seeing everyone again...and working on some new music.
