In this Study Day, Stephanie Cant will guide players through Schubert’s Symphony No. 4.  Nicknamed the ‘Tragic’ after its sombre opening movement, the work alternates between tranquility and restless passion whilst moving towards a triumphant finale.  Participants are also invited to rehearse & perform this work along with Handel’s Water Music and Beethoven’s 4th Piano Concerto, the following day in Hall Two for free.

The concert will also include Mozart’s Serenade for 8 wind instruments in C minor, which a small wind group of our players have been specially preparing for the occasion.

Mozart Overtures from *“The Impressario” and *“The Marriage of Figaro”
Extracts from Mozart “Eine Kleine Nacht Musik” (our own version for full orchestra)
Haydn Piano Concerto in D major (1st movement)

Music & Parts
Parts will be available on the day. If you would like to look at the music beforehand, those marked * in the programme above, can be downloaded from the Petrucci website http://imslp.org/wiki/Main_Page
To save you printing up lots that you may not use, remember that none of the concerti are being played in their entirety, and that we will be using our own version of Eine Kleine Nachtmusik which will be different from any you might find on the internet.

New group at The Sage from 23.9.09 for ten weeks

In September we start a 10 week residency to see if we can establish a daytime rehearsal group on Tyneside. For years, people have been lobbying for two things; a weekly group in Newcastle/Gateshead and a chance to play during daylight hours Monday to Friday. These two requests have magically come together in the Residency, so I hope lots of you will turn up and tell all your friends to come too. As it’s to be a new group, less experienced players will be made especially welcome. There will not be pre-enrolment for these sessions, but please e-mail Liz to say if you intend coming.
