Class - 16th May

We were reuntied this week, and it was time to try our final large ensemble piece...'Overture' to 'The Mastersingers of Nurenburg' by Wagner...despite the fact that I've edited it (and cut quite a lot out!) it's still fairly epic! We were missing a few people this week, but still managed to make good progress with our other pieces.

Small group items:
  • 'Summer Sketches' by Alfred Castle - Alison, Polly, Theresa & Nicola
  • 'Variations on "La ci darem la mano" from Mozart's "Don Giovanni"' by Beethoven - Heather, Helen & Mike
  • Trio Sonata in G Major by Telemann - Judy, Kath & Joan
  • Quartet in C Minor by Schickhardt - George, Imogen, John, Dinana & Angela
