Wiltshire Rural Music
Join us for our monthly lunchtime concert series Tune@Noon. An opportunity to listen to local musicians whilst enjoying a cup of tea and a piece of cake.
Angela Williams was born in Hampshire and won a scholarship to the Royal Academy of Music at 18 to study the oboe and piano. She freelanced in London before deciding to train as a woodwind teacher. Teaching jobs followed with music services in Berkshire, Wales and most recently Wiltshire. She conducts the North Wiltshire Junior Wind Band and is hugely committed to getting young people involved in music making and in promoting the oboe.
Performance will include:
Ancient Greek Aulos and a brief tune showing where the modern instruments developed from. Baroque-era recorder duet followed by an explanation of what the double reed is and how the oboe is related. CPE Bach oboe solo.
A flute and oboe duet by Telemann to illustrate how well they blend (two branches of the family) plus a discussion of how the instruments changed and developed over 100 years.
Moceau de Concours for flute and piano by Fauré
Britten’s Bacchus from the Metamorphoses (oboe)
Duet for flute and oboe (TBC).
