Music Appreciation (Tuesday) – April meeting

We meet on the third Tuesday of each month at 10am.  In April the programme of music was presented by Amanda. We began with ‘Vespers’ by Claudio Monteverdi (1567-1643) and this was followed by the ‘Serenade No 6 in D Major (Senata Notturna)’ by Mozart (1756-1791) and the ‘Pelleas et Melisande Suite and Pavane’ by Gabriel Faure (1845-1924).  After coffee we listened to David Le Page (the Harborough Collective) play ‘La Follia’ and we finished the morning with the ’Piano Concerto No 1 in B flat Minor’ by Tchaikovsky (1840-1893).  Thanks Amanda for an absorbing morning of music with thrilling solo performances in La Follia and the Tchaikovsky piano concerto.  Our next meeting is on Tuesday, 16th May, when Roger will present the programme of music.  Peter Ellement.
