Classical Journey Tuesday 11th January

Broadclyst Church
where pianist John Scarfe
and clarinettist Sally Kirby
will perform as part of the
'Coffee and Music' concert series
This Saturday the 'Music and Coffee' series will recommence at the Church of St John the Baptist in Broadclyst.  Concerts are preceded at 10.30am by coffee and tea in the Church followed by a concert at 11am.  This week the music will be provided by pianist John Scarfe and Clarinettist Sally Kirby playing in Duet.
To whet our appetites John and Sally will be joining the 'Classical Journey' at 11am this Tuesday to play us a selection from their repertoire over the airwaves.
First some music from Salzburg - Mozart's 1772 Church Sonatas.
On Saturday John and Sally will play all three.  Each is only one movement, and played together they effectively amount to a sonata in three movements.  On Tuesday's show John and Sally will play just the second, slow, sonata, which is very beautiful.
They also have a twentieth century Serenade (Opus 7) by French Composer Gabriel Pierné, a very lively piece that is played with many different combinations of instruments.  Piano and Clarinet will be an exciting new variation.

Next they have something even more modern: Paul Reade's piece 'Victorian Kitchen Garden Suite' which won the 1991 TV theme for the best TV theme tune.This piece was composed specifically for piano and clarinet, but other combinations have been tried including harp and clarinet which we heard over the changing seasons at the beginning of the Kitchen Garden programme - with violin accompaniment.  This piece is actually quite long and John and Sally will play just one movement on air tomorrow, and the other two on Saturday.

Finally they will play us one of Gerald Finzi's two carols from the early twentieth century.  On Saturday we can hear both together.
