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 - 21st June

We worked hard on our large ensemble pieces again last night...although we've still not managed to have a rehearsal with everyone present. They've all improved greatly from our first readings - it was even remarked that our 'Olympic Fanfare & Theme' was "rather stirring in places"!

Small group items:
  • 'Prelude & Fugue' (Book 1, No. 24) by J. S. Bach - Judy, Diana & Mike
  • Sonata in Bb major by Janitsch - Penny, Annabel, Polly & Imogen
  • Sonata in D minor by Boismortier - George, Kath, Theresa & Joan
  • 'Valse Harmonique' by Simon Ballard* - Heather, Helen & Angela
