A Euphonium & An Aquarium?

When people here heard that Susanna is going to study in England (Birmingham Conservatoire), we began to get requests for a concert. So next Tuesday (1st of September, 6pm), she is playing a kind of farewell concert in Finnsnes Church.

We want the concert to be family-friendly, so some of the pieces are fun, and to give Susanna’s lip a bit of a break, I’m going to interject some short organ pieces. A very good friend waxed lyrical a few weeks ago about a suite called Aquarium, by a contemporary German composer called Willscher. I really like them. If you want to know what a sea cucumber, dolphins, and sea dragons sound like, you’ll just have to come to the concert!
