Concert in Vangsvik – En Eklektisk Samling

A couple of weeks ago, before the snow came, we had a trip out the village of Vangsvik on the south of Senja to try out the church organ. This Sunday we shall return to perform a concert, subtitled “En eklektisk samling av musikk fra Bach til Blå salme!” (an eclectic collection of music, from Bach to Blå salme – a well known contemporary Norwegian song). Susanna will play euphonium and sing, Sarah will sing and play piano / organ, and I’ll play piano / organ and possible the plastic pipe (my home made low whistle).


Here is the provisional music list, although we have yet to decide the running order. There will also be an interval with the obligatory coffee and cake! Note, if you were at our “Våpenhus” concert last week, the program is almost entirely different.

E. Morricone Gabriel’s oboe Euphonium and piano
R. Wilhelm Concertino for Euphonium (1st and 2nd mvts) Euphonium and piano
B. Marcello Sonata in F (1st and 2nd mvts) Euphonium and piano
E. Elgar Nimrod (from Enigma Variations) Euphonium, piano and organ
J.S. Bach Prelude in B minor Organ
J. Rutter Toccata in 7 Organ
T. Dubois Postlude Cantique Organ
J. Pachelbel Cannon Organ
C.V. Stanford Short preludes and postludes, Op 101 (No. 5 & 6) Organ
G. Bélier Toccata Organ
C. Saint-Saëns Symphony No 3 (2nd movement) Organ and piano
G.F. Handel If God is for us Voice and piano
E. Elgar Sea Pictures Voice and piano
E. Bye / H. Sommerro Blå salme Voice and piano
Hellbillies Det finaste eg veit Voice and piano
