Zither Sunday, March 11, 2018

Post by Rudy Mueller » Wed Mar 14, 2018 8:35 am

A "Zither Sunday" was held at the home of Kurt Eckroth on Sunday, March 11, 2018. The group has expanded to include three zithers two violins, bass clarinet, and guitar.

The (all new for us,) pieces included
Asperlbam - Boarischer
In Wean san 'd Erbsen grean - march
An Walzer nur hör'n and A Weanerischer Tanz, - potpouri of waltzes by Schrammel
Kaukusus - Ländler
Wien bleibt Wien - march, and
Neujahrs Boarischer.

Whew! This was a power practice....and that after a delightful schnitzel dinner!

Do you have a photo of your ensemble? Seems like a nice variety of sounds would come out. What parts did the violins, guitar and clarinet take or did they double the respective Zither parts?

Hope you're doing well.
