This time our unschooling friends were busy, so it was three generations of our family that visited. We had slept in after last night's late arrival back from Nelson but when we finally got up we called to see if our friends would like a visit. Sure enough John was keen. He's been doing well lately.
On today's program:
Liszt Consolation No. 3 (Erin, piano)
Lully Gavotte (Fiona, violin)
Handel Bourrée (Fiona, violin)
Sakura Sakura (string ensemble, everyone)
Telemann Concerto in G for 2 violas, 3rd & 4th movements (Noah & Miranda, violas)
La Provencale by Marais (Noah, viola)
Two Grenadiers (Fiona, violin)
Preludio from Bach's E Major Partita (Erin, violin)
Humoresque by Dvorak (Sophie, violin)
Go Tell Aunt Rhody (string ensemble, everyone)
Largo & Gavotta/Allegro from Corelli Concerto Grosso Op. 6 (Erin, Grandma, Sophie, Noah)
Londonderry Air / "Danny Boy" (Erin, Grandma, Sophie, Noah)
Scarlatti Sonata K. 8 (Erin, piano)
I think it's pretty neat that my family is at the stage of being able to pick up and play ensemble repertoire together without any extra preparation. And it is so lovely to have the excuse to do so.
