Rollicking Rhymes - concert by Elanee Ensemble


Grenfell, M, Rollicking Rhymes - concert by Elanee Ensemble, The Kilburn Institute, Davey Street, Hobart (2011) [Performance]


Rollicking Rhymes is a whimsical and somewhat off-beat take on two well-known nursery rhymes. The first movement, "Ring-a-roses", takes snippets of the rhyme tune and blends it with a sailorís hornpipe which I previously incorporated into a piece that experimented with utilising bagpipe tunes to varying degrees of recognition. The second movement, "Rockabye", comes from "Rock-a-bye baby" but here in 5/8 with the familiar tune barely recognisable at all. As a bit of fun, the third "rhyme" is inspired by the jaunty antics of a rather famous cartoon rabbit, also reminding us of those manic characters who race around in fits and starts before something implausibly crazy happens to them. Performers: Jo St Leon, Stuart Thomson
