Music Appreciation (Friday) – July meeting

Our June meeting was cancelled after several members were unable to attend.  However, we managed a ‘Full House’ on the last Friday in July when we listened to music inspired by the sea by Arnold Bax, Benjamin Britten, Claude Debussy and Nikolay Rimsky-Korsakov.  Jaques Ibert provided his Symphonie Marine which was developed from what was the first piece of music written for film in Europe in 1931.  The morning ended with a nod to the BBC Proms with the music from the main titles of ‘Sea Hawk’ by Eric Korngold.  We shall be meeting next on Friday, August 25th.  Geoff Moth.
