• Following a most successful Study Day concentrating on Mozart’s Quintet for Piano and Winds, these days, have been, by request and special arrangement, continued and expanded.

    The opportunity is to be made available to both pre-formed and free-lancing ensembles


    The focus will be on larger-scale ensembles in including piano quintets and mixed winds and string works.


    Elizabeth’s home turned out to be particularly suitable and, as there is a Village Hall (though no piano, so the one piano place, only at Elizabeth’s home) a few steps away, a second group with its own tutor may meet on the same day so that, by interchanging personnel, additional repertoire will be possible as time allows.


    For those coming longer distances than may be comfortable in a day’s journey, there is 'B&B' accommodation close by, within 5 - 10 mins, at a variety of prices.


    A healthful, plentiful lunch will be made available as will coffee and afternoon tea. Menu canvassed in advance so that dietary requirements are met.


    Parking freely available


    Region GBP 70 - 90 including coaching, lunch, afternoon tea and morning coffee


    11.00 am - 5.30pm, extended hours by general agreement. A 2-day arrangement, should it be desired, can be trialled


    The initial team welcomed a play - through to a small invited audience and that can be incorporated.


    Elizabeth Altman, piano
    Pal Band, cello
    Ofer Falk, violin
    Peter Merry, winds
    others as desired


    Please call EA to discuss bringing your ensemble or suggest repertoire for EA to invite players of similar standard to realise. EA 07711 037907


    Longridge, Common Lane, Letchmore Heath WD25 8EE Herts

    Letchmore Heath is a pretty urban village set in attractive Hertfordshire countryside between Watford and Radlett.

    Until the 1950’s it was entirely self-sufficient, having a post office, smithy, undertaker and with grocers’ and greengrocers’, dairy and bakery all selling local produce. Alas no more - although the ducks still swim in the village pond.

    Pevsner records the village as being unique for the plaques on individual homes commemorating the inhabitants who gave their lives in World War I.


    BY CAR As you will see, it lies about 5 minutes from the M1 (Junction 5) and A41; A1 is 15 minutes approximately.

    TRAINS to Watford then 10 - 15 mins by taxi; trains to Radlett then 5 minutes by taxi; Kings Cross - Radlett 25 minutes.

    AIRPORTS Nearest airports, Luton 30 minutes Heathrow about the same but best to allow longer.
