Another picture perfect start to the day!
Overnight showers nourish the flowers.
Wednesday evening is the first of three concerts by the teachers. These are top notch musicians. Laura sang renaissance and medieval music (Hildegard von Bingen). Her delivery of Hildegard's music was luminous.
A hockey match at CAMMAC? In slow motion with bass recorders! Matthias composed a piece in three movements. It really had the energy and feel of a match with fast passages that gave the impression of players whipping down the ice.
Each movement was played on a different combination of recorders as the piece progressed from the junior players to the professionals with a definite change of pace and intensity.
Amazing musicians - The evening's programme:
J.S. Bach, Extract from the 5th Brandenburg Concerto: Geneviève Soly, Olivier Brault, Francis Colpron
