Bruckner 4 “The Romantic” 1st movement

So, we thought we’d go for something really big this time and people are always requesting Bruckner, but we rarely have the chance to play any. So here we are! Remember you’ll be on mute, and it’s a nice chance to tackle something we wouldn’t normally in a live rehearsal.

The music is available here:

There are no Bb trumpet parts but there are Eb parts which are a bit easier to use.If anyone is following the score rather than their own part, it’s the 2nd version (ed. Haas) we’re using. The 1936 Musikwissenschaftlicher Verlag copy is easier to read than the Dover one.

Make Music Day Concert Event
Monday 21st June, 7pm

Every year, music societies around the world celebrate Make Music Day on 21st June. So to join with these celebrations, we have a lovely event being planned and we are inviting you to join in!

Do join us for a celebration of how The Cobweb Orchestra has kept going throughout the pandemic. We will have performances by some members, a wonderful reflection on all the CVO’s we’ve done throughout this past year or so and we thought we’d round off by everyone playing the favourite: Hebrides Overture by Mendellsohn. You can find your parts here: Die Hebriden, Op.26 (Mendelssohn, Felix) – IMSLP: Free Sheet Music PDF Download

We’d love to see as many people as possible at this event, in the vague hope that it may well be our last virtual event. Maybe.
