I think the piece I had in mind is above that. unsure.gif It's in the Baroque Violinist (ed Sheila Nelson, pub Boosey and Hawkes). Do you have a copy of the book to look at? smile.gif The only other duet I have is definitely around grade 4 because it's on the syllabus.

You'd better find another willing partner then. I am not reknown for my violin skills biggrin.gif

erm blush.gif I think I can do this with you Flossie, if you will 'allow me' smile.gif

ps I have that book and I might have played that duet already (although there is a couple of duets in the book and you'll have to tell me which one you are referring to...)

Going back to the Mozart Kegelstatt trio. Sbhoa has kindly agreed to lend us her the score of her version for two clarinets and piano. So is there another clarinettist who would like to play it with Nicia and I ? I guess it will need a grade 7-8 player.

The normal version of the score can be downloaded from http://imslp.org, and search under 'Mozart' and then 'trio'.
We would get the Clarinet 1 and piano part that way , but as the middle part is normally viola, we could borrow sbhoa's copy for Clarinet 2.

There is also a down loadable violin alternative to Clarinet 1, so I suppose it could also be played as violin/clarinet/piano
On my recording 1st movement is 5 min 40secs. Second is 6 min exactly. Third is over 8 mins so too long.

The application form is now downloadable from the Concert Info page on the Players for Pleasure web site. The sooner you can get the forms back to me, the sooner I can allocate accompanists, fix up duets/trios for anybody who hasn't already arranged something, and the ensemble directors can start allocating parts. The large ensembles are Clarinet (lois), Flute (Nicia-Clarinet-Flute), Strings (Celeste), Choir and Orchestral (both MusicGuru). Many thanks to the ensemble directors for volunteering!

My teacher PianoGuru is willing to accompany advanced pieces. If anybody wants him to accompany a G7/8 piece, please let me have it as soon as possible, preferably in the post but by email otherwise.


I put my application form in the post this evening! smile.gif

Skylark - it would be great if your piano teacher could accompany me for Italian Dance - I've included a copy of the music with my application form.

How many ensembles/ solo turns are we allowed to participate in?

I'm planning an oboe trio with Emsoboe and Amber-piano, a performance of one of my exam pieces and hopefully will be part of the orchestra.

I'm happy to have a go at accompanying if you need an extra one, but also happy not to if you have enough. I'll leave it to Skylark to sort out!

Really looking forward to it! smile.gif

Solos - either one solo up to 6 mins or two solos totalling 6 mins. If you do two, they can be on different instruments and played separately if you wish.

Ensembles - if it's a large ensemble (flute, clarinet, strings, choir or orchestral), then anybody can take part in any of them, assuming the directors have a part for that level. There might be some doubling up on parts.

Duets, trios, quartets - I've allowed for two on the form. Occasionally somebody plays in more than two, but usually because I've particularly asked them to partner somebody who hasn't got any duets organised.

As multi-instrumentalists will testify, it's sometimes difficult for somebody who is in a lot of slots to fit in all the rehearsal time and still have some time to relax and socialise during the morning - less is sometimes more biggrin.gif

Yes. ph34r.gif

Does your teacher play the piano? If not, you're probably best going for something which will fit together with the piano easily without too much practice. smile.gif

I need to decide what to do for my flute solo. unsure.gif

Glad you can come, look forward to meeting you party1.gif

Yes do play a solo - when you see everybody else doing it, it won't seem as scary! And by that time you'll have met everybody and probably played in one of the ensembles or a duet.

Don't worry if you haven't got an accompanist, I can allocate you one smile.gif


Thanks to everybody sending off early forms biggrin.gif

Will sort things out and get the form in the post this week. Determind not to be last for once biggrin.gif

As usual I'm not going to approach lots of people for ensmbles for Emsoboe. I think she has committed to a couple as it is. I'll leave her free for anyone who wants a duet partner that she can oblige. Do your worst Skylark tongue.gif She would rather play than socialise laugh.gif Playing is socialising in her opinion biggrin.gif

Can she double up with me on clarinet rolleyes.gif (I can lend her one tongue.gif)

Lois - I'm really rubbish in ensembles, yes really ph34r.gif I don't usually take part in them but I'll give it a go this time if you're willing to risk it, but I recommend giving me a part that isn't critical ph34r.gif
