Please find attached the letter regarding the forthcoming Strings only workshop on Sunday 12th June 2016. Folkestone Camerata
The programme will include:
- William Boyce Symphony n.2. It is a delightful, short symphony (only about 6 mn long in total)
- Vivaldi 4 violins concerto in B minor – A piece I adore and I can’t wait to hear you all perform.
- Vivaldi 2 cellos concerto in G minor – thanks to Helen Ralph for this suggestion
- Telemann Viola concerto in G Major – suggested by Wendy Smith and I thank her for it
- Benjamin Britten’s Simple Symphony – which we didn’t finish.
- If we have time, we will play Puccini’s Crisantemi.
For the Vivaldi 4 violins concerto, the solo parts will be played by all violinists present. But for the Vivaldi 2 cellos concerto and the Telemann Viola concerto, we will perform them with solo players. If anyone wants to have a go at playing the solo section in these two works, please let me know. If you want to have a look at the solo sections prior to the workshop day, you can download the music from the imslp website.
I look forward to hearing back from you. Don’t forget to circulate this email to friends of yours who might be interested in this workshop.
With warm wishes
