Wind Serenades on-line
Magical musical trips to Venice, the Tyrol in Austria and the Scottish Hebrides
Many thanks to all those players who took part in this special on-line project. Now, after all the practice, meeting the challenges of playing to the microphone and getting your head round all the quirks of your recording machines, you can sit back and relax! Wonderful technology has brought you all together, even as far apart as USA and Japan, so you can listen to a complete version of the music - as well as starting to look forward to real LIVE music-making very soon!
All players who took part are credited at the end of each video.
Giovanni Gabrieli: Sonata Pian e Forte
with images of Venice and St. Mark's Basilica
Anton Bruckner: Kyrie, from Mass in E minor
with images of the Tyrol region of Austria
Mendelssohn: Overture 'The Hebrides'
with images of the Scottish Hebridean islands
There are two video versions of the Mendelssohn piece, as this is performed 'one player to a part', and there were a sizeable number of players wishing to take part. Some are included in both, either on the same part or on different parts, while others are different in versions 1 and 2. Both videos are of the same musical arrangement, and feature the same photographic images.
