The primary pupils of Baltasound

Primary pupils of Uyeasound

Capitivated by the harp

The horn got very loud!

The pupils of Baltasound have produced a stunning DVD with music for the Odyssey written by themselves. CHROMA were sent two of the pieces that music teacher Alice Mullay thought would sound better on live instruments, which were arranged by CHROMA's violinist Marcus, workshopped with the composers and their class, then recorded for the DVD. Jonathan Ritch supervised the recording session.

Marcus' arrangements of the Archery Contest (above) and the Battle of the Suitors (below) - for the enormously rare combination of clarinet in Bb, horn, harp and violin. If this starts a trend, we could say it all began on Unst!

and the recording sessions for the Odysseus DVD, engineered by the pupils...
