Music Appreciation (Friday)

After a short Choral version of Goethe’s ‘Calm Sea and Prosperous Voyage’ by Beethoven, we launched into our review of music by Mendelssohn with his Overture based on the same two poems.  This was followed by his first Piano Concerto in G Minor, a piece less familiar to the group.  Our morning continued with the Hebrides Overture and ended with his very popular Violin Concerto.  We meet again on November 24th when we shall be listening some Landscapes and Citiscapes portrayed in music.  Geoff Moth.
