Two posts in two days, we’re on a roll.
Anyway – a date not to be missed – 4th October 2008 – 7.30 pm
Bristol Brass Consort (Very Big Version) PRESENTS !
- Mussorgsky (arr Elgar Howarth) Pictures at an Exhibition
- Strauss Festmusik der Stadt Wien
- Koetsier Symphony for Brass
- Sibelius (arr Joseph Krienes) Finlandia
More details at St. George’s web site
Without wishing to big it up too much this concert will be Massive – (at least in numbers of players). Those who know our fabled GMS (tm – see previous posts) will appreciate how much opportunity this gives us (or me at least) for wandering around on stage looking vaguely lost.
For a more orderly (and quieter) concert the quintet will be playing at Holy Trinity Church, Minchinhampton on 12th October. Time and program to be decided, probably about 7.00 pm and likely to include some Koetsier and the Santa Barbara Sonata by Bram Tovey. And less wandering around.
