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 - 18th October

We were a rather depleted group at last night's class...but we battled on regardless with final versions of 'Les Patineurs' by Waldteufel, and 'Tango Ballad' & 'Mack the Knife' from Weill's 'Threepenny Opera' ...with all the expression and articulation added.

Small group items:
  • Concerto in A minor by Vivaldi - Imogen, Kath, Diana & Angela
  • Trio Sonata in D minor by Schwartzkopff - Penny, Judy & Joan
  • 'Tritsch-Tratsch Polka' by Johann Strauss (Arr. Holcombe & Holcombe Jnr.) - Helen, Theresa, Dermot & Mike
It's our half-term break next week, so our next class will be on November 1st.
