Described following a recent performance as ‘light’, ‘lively’ and ‘cute’, these comic miniatures give rise to a light-hearted repartee between the three ensemble members. All three instruments get a chance to shine, and there is opportunity not just for musical expression, but for a certain amount of amusing interchange between the ensemble members. The Bee Eater is surely a most ridiculous creature: apparently they don’t like bees at all but are partial to wasps!
