Inspired by FR2’s concert and teaching at the International Summer Course in Biezenortel in de Summer of 2021, the Dutch Pipers’ Guild commissioned a CD ‘best of bamboo’ with them. This project wil contain an opera omnia recording of all four works for pipes by Ralph Vaughan-Williams. Two of those are world première recordings. These four are: Duets (1933), Canzona for three pipes, Quartet (1939) en the lovely Viola Suite wih piano* (1939).
You can hear the original version of the Musette from Vaughan Williams’ Viola Suite here:
The Dutch Guild had Hen Badings write many pieces for them. We’ll be recording is festive Quartet for Pleasure 5. It goes without saying that there will be a lot of pieces for two instruments on this cd. The following composers (chronologically) will certainly make te cut: Conrad Pauman, Johann Sebastian Bach, Georg Philipp Telemann, George Gerschwin en Soeren Sieg.
Following the tradition of the Pipers’ Guilds we will be making the instruments ourselves!
