The RSSC Galleries and the LYCO Bandcamp Page contain half a day of music. Have you ever wanted to play along with one of them? For just a few pieces, we have synchronised the notation with the concert recording, so you can do just that.
Or if you have ever just wanted to listen to a string orchestra while following all the parts in the conductor’s score, this is also the right place for that…
Of these three movements, we recommend starting with the 6th (the easiest) and ending with the 4th (the hardest). Ironically, out of these only the 5th movement has concertino parts, normally a distinguishing feature of a concerto grosso.
This is not the first time that Willem has conducted the Capriol Suite. Half the age of the camp ago it proved a challenge for the Freycinet Orchestra. That performance may still be heard in the RSSC 2006 Gallery.
RSSC recordings dating back to 2005 exist, but for many years we didn’t have room on the website to store them all. We also had problems trying to provide formats suitable for all browsers. To avoid these problems, RSSC recordings are now stored on the specialist music hosting service Bandcamp. To hear or download them, go to the Galleries and select a year from 2005 onwards. We also have 2003, but the 2004 concert was not recorded. Can you find the piece that has been performed three times since then?
