Münster/Emsdetten, Reunion with Blue Monday 3rd March, 2003
As part of their preparations for their oncoming tour of New Zealand, Singapore and Malaysia in April 2001, Gesa Scharf and Geoff Grainger visited Bettina Kiefner at her home on Saturday, 3rd March in Emsdetten where together with her long-time partner, Elisabeth Book, they worked through their tour quartet and quintet repertoire. On Sunday, Bettina was quite suddenly taken ill and the recital planned to be given for family and friends in Elisabeth's home in Münster had to be hastily revised as a trio programme. The recital was well received by those present and The Company was presented with a set of works by Tielman Susato marking this delightful and very friendly occasion.
The following works were covered during the workshop:

Take Five by Paul DesmondTango Für Elise by Paul Leenhouts
Feuerwerksmusik by George F. HandelPiccola Serenata by Antonio Salieri
Chattanooga Choo Choo by Harry WarrenMoonlight Serenade by Glenn Miller
Tea For Two by Vincent Millie YoumansThe Entertainer and New Rag by Scott Joplin,
