    This was a very enjoyable meetup. There are so few opportunities to play serious music in a fun and nonjudgmental environment.

  • David

    Eleven members enjoyed a fine afternoon of music on a rainy day. We had Haydn, C.P.E. Bach, Mozart, and Gilbert & Sullivan. Thanks to all who came.

    The Haydn trios for flute are HV:15, 16, 17. I am familiar with #15 and #17. I can scan and download parts from my Peters edition if a flutist and cellist want to practice in advance.

    2 · August 18

    • David

      We will have to take turns on the piano, but I'm sure there will be time for you. Haydn trios were very popular last month, and I'd love to hear some more.

      August 18

    • Barbara M.

      I'm not familiar with Haydn Flute Trios, look forward to hearing!

      August 18

  • David

    Does anyone have a keyboard that they can bring?

    August 18

  • Laura

    Hi, Everyone!
    Would really love to join you, but I work on Saturdays. David, just wanted to let me know how much I enjoyed the last meet-up at your home; giving me the opportunity to begin playing again after too long an absence from oboe. Thank-you all so much.

    August 17

    • David

      I am delighted that you could make it. I'm exploring the idea of having an occasional meeting on Sunday, so watch for news.

      August 18

  • Deborah H.

    I will bring the Mozart Flute Quartets and some music for multiple flutes.

    August 17

  • Barbara M.

    Hi Anna, "Spiegel im Spiegel" is ready to go -- really nice piece now that I have counted all the ledger lines and written in all those stratospherically high notes...

    August 13

  • Wendy

    Hi. I'm looking for a voice teacher. Any suggestions?
    Thanks much.

    • David

      Arrrg! Meetup took away the email feature! They substituted what they call 'conversation'­, which is like a messaging system. I had no notice from them and am trying to figure it out.

      August 10

    • David

      Wendy, I replied to the message you sent me via the new conversation feature. Please let me know if you find it!

      August 10

  • Liz

    Barbara, absolutely, I'm up for anything. I also have a Telemann trio sonata in b minor for flute, violin and cello which I'll bring, it can also easily be played with 2 flutes or two violins. Most of my other music is just flute/piano or flute basso but I'll see what's available online before the date based on the makeup of the group.

    1 · August 9

    • Barbara M.

      Fantastic! The Telemann sounds wonderful too.

      August 9

  • Barbara M.

    Could I interest the two excellent flautists in a Handel Trio Sonata or two? I could bring Sonate 3-Moll fur 2 Flauti tranversi und Basso continuo, HWV 395 (probably written by Hasse and misattributed to Handel) and Sonate F-Dur fur 2 Flauti dolci und Basso continuo, HWV 405 (probably not genuine Handel either). Unfortunately, neither is on imslp.org, but I will bring all parts which are also available at the Logan Square Free Library.

    We will also need a cellist and I would even be willing to share the piano part with a fellow keyboardist.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
