Viola da Gamba concert remembered: 13 May 1997 – Ye Vyalls
April 22, 2009
Ye Vyalls — a concert of Australian contemporary and early music for five viols. Joseph Post Auditorium, Sydney Conservatorium of Music, 13 May 1997. An inspiration at the time, which still reverberates down to the present in my own humble efforts. I notice the Sculthorpe is available in this format of five parts from the Australian Music Centre. The AMC also published a score of a short suite by Colin Brumby composed for string students, adaptable for TrTB viols.
