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!
The music will include:
- Concertino – Rolf Wilhelm (Mvts 1 & 2)
- Sonata in F minor – Telemann (Mvts 1, 2 & 4)
- Sonata No. 1 in A minor – Galliard (Mvts 1, 2, 4, 5)
- Brass Bangles – Floyd O. Harris
- Gabriel’s Oboe – Ennio Morricone
- Unresolved – Jon Blamire
- Copy Cats – Jon Blamire
- Akvarium – Willscher
The concert is free, with a collection toward the choir tour next year.
