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 - 26th January

We seemed to have got over the shock of the key signature with five flats (and then five sharps for the clarinets), and made good progress this evening with our large ensemble pieces...adding dynamics (ranging from pp to fff!) in the 'Irish Tune from County Derry'...and picking up speed in 'Shepherd's Hey'...although we have yet to try it with an accelerando at the end!

Small group items:
  • 'Marie Antoinette' by Scott Joplin (Arr. H. Brammer) - Polly, Dermot & Mike
  • Trio Sonata in E minor by Telemann - Diana, Kath & Joan
  • Sonata in Bb major by Fasch - Imogen, Judy, Emily, Margaret & Angela
  • 'Cuckoo Quartet' by Ronald Hanmer - Heather, Penny, Theresa & Helen
