Class - 10th November

Tonight's class was a little bit different...with the Church being used for a rehearsal for the licensing of their new vicar, we decamped to two of our members' houses to rehearse some small chamber group pieces. It worked quite well...although I needed to run back and forth to hear what was going on everywhere...thankfully the houses were quite close together!

Here's what we played at Kath's:
  • Quartet in D minor 'Tafelmusik' by Telemann - George, Imogen, Heather*, Margaret & Joan
  • Trio in D minor by Boismortier - Emily, Diana & Kath
  • Trio Sonata in G minor by Pepusch - George, Diana & Imogen 
  • Trio Sonatas by Corelli - Emily, Kath, Margaret & Joan
  • And apparently something by Handel that I didn't hear...
And at Angela & Mikes:
  • Woodwind Trio by M. Hedien - Penny, Judy & Mike
  • 'Vocalise' by Rachmaninov - Theresa, Dermot & Angela
  • 'Fantasy' by Faure - Heather*, Helen & Angela
  • 'Serenade for Seven' (with only 5 players!) by Ronald Hanmer - Penny, Judy, Theresa, Dermot & Mike
 * I don't know how Heather managed to be in two places at once?!

Thank you to our hosts for a most enjoyable evening!
