I play various musical instruments. More about this can be found on my private web-site.
Since 1993, people from my department have occasionally got together to perform concerts. For a while some of us performed ragtime and similar. I don't remember the exact details, but it all happened 1993-1995, David Edelman played piano, Bill Gibson played violin, I played tuba and sometimes Malcolm Quine played clarinet. The pieces performed included (at least):
|Scott Joplin||Elite syncopations|
|Walter Donaldson||Love me or leave me|
|Scott Joplin||The strenuous life|
In 1993 I misguidedly sang in the choir, but the less said about that the better. After that I concentrated on solo pieces:
|1994||Trombone||Rimsky-Korsakov||Concerto, 1st movement||David Easdown|
|1995||Trombone||Jacob||Concerto, 1st movement||David Easdown|
|1997||Trombone||Gounod||Lend me your aid2||--|
|1997||Trombone||Jacob||Concerto, 3rd movement||David Easdown|
|1998||Tuba||Holst||Second suite in F3||Tim Svenson, David Easdown|
|1998||Trombone||Wagenseil||Concerto, 1st movement||David Easdown, Bill Gibson|
|1999||Trombone||Jacob||Concerto, 2nd movement||David Easdown|
|1999||Trombone||Teasdale||The jockey4||Alastair Nelson|
|2000||Tuba||Mozart||Queen of the Night's aria4||(tape)|
|2003||Trombone||Wagenseil||Concerto, 2nd movement||Humphrey Gastineau-Hills, Bill Gibson, Tim Svenson|
|2005||Trombone||Grondahl||Concerto, 1st movement||David Gruenwald|
 A bad move. I don't practice the guitar enough.
 This was intended as a warm-up, so I didn't bother with an accompanist. Didn't work though - I still fluffed the high F in the cadenza of the concerto.
 Only the last 20 or so bars. Tim stopped me in the corridor one day, and asked if I knew of any music for flute and tuba. This was the best I could come up with. David contributed the rest of the band via the piano.
 Why do the novelty pieces go over better with the audience than the serious stuff?
 Yes I know I did the first movement before. We felt it would be musically better to do the whole thing rather than just the second and third movements.
