This, as ever, is just a rattlebag of material, visual and aural, which you might find useful for the session on Thursday. This is a very personal area for me, so I make no apology for that!

Here’s the audio of my plain text for the session:

On the practice desk. Anders Heyerdahl’s ‘Norsk Danse og Slalatter, optegened efter gamle Spillemaend fra 1856 til 1861’

The 9 year old Carl Nielsen’s Polka. This did not please his father….


Ede Telmanyi
