Following a call by rarescale for music for the unusual and rather exciting combination of contrabass flute, contrabass clarinet and contrabassoon, Anna’s newly-composed work Contradanza has been selected for the ‘Meet the Contras’ concert programme this Thursday.
Thursday 21st June, 7:30pm
St James’ Church, Sussex Gardens, London W2 3UD
(nearest station: Paddington)
These three instruments are pretty much as low as you can go with woodwind. It’s all about the bass – and bass means big. They are definitely a sight to behold! In rarescale’s words:
The concert is FREE and we’d love to show you what our amazing low instruments can do!
The performance is part of Make Music Day UK. Full details here: www.facebook.com/events/2092882854304485/ Just turn up!

Great news: A Carol From Flanders is to be published by Recital Music and will soon be available for purchase. The work, for SATB choir and organ, has been written especially for the centenary of the First World War ‘Christmas Truce’ which famously took place on Christmas Day 1914. If you are starting to think about planning the winter concert programmes for your choir or choral society, this carol would be the perfect way to mark one hundred years since the outbreak of WW1. Do get in touch for more information, as we can provide audio and score samples before you buy, or visit Recital Music.
