About Our Guest Musicians: Aeris Brass (Trombone Quartet)
The Aeris Quartet was formed in 2015 by four very talented young trombonists who aim to push the boundaries of what might be expected from a brass ensemble. With a number of newly commissioned works, they are exploring music never before played on the trombone. They have performed with internationally renowned soloists and completed successful tours both across the UK and abroad.
This concert should provide an exciting start to our autumn season.
Programme For Tau Wey’s Concert
Ravel’s Pavane pour une infante défunte also has a double life as an orchestral piece. It is a beautifully evocative dance in the neo-classical style, and inspired by a picture of a little dancing princess by Velazquez.
Ginastera was one of the most important Argentine composers. The Danzas Argentinas, though they do not relate to pictures and have not been orchestrated, are wonderfully descriptive pieces ideally written for the virtuosic medium of the piano.

About Music On The Green
Our concerts take place in Christ Church at the heart of Esher – a church which boasts an outstanding pipe organ, fine grand piano acquired in 2012 with a very generous loan, and good acoustics which all contribute to making our music so enjoyable.
MUSIC on the GREEN is about making music which is accessible to, and enjoyable by, as many people as possible without it being stuffy or cheapened. This is the reason for the MUSIC on the GREEN ‘brand’ – to give the music an identity of its own.
Music is about people, emotions, history… We blend all these ingredients and seek to present our music in interesting and rewarding ways, within its own context so that it can be widely appreciated and enjoyed. Whilst having our firmest foot planted at the classical end of the spectrum, we seek to offer a rich and varied listening programme.
