Music Appreciation (Tuesday) – February

We meet on the third Tuesday of each month at 5 Holdenby Close, MH, at 10am. In January we heard a selection of music from pantomime, ballet and opera including the Coppelia Suite by Delibes(1836-1891) and part of the first act from La Boheme by Puccini including the love duet between Mimi and Rodolfo, surely one of the great operatic love songs. After coffee we listened to three memorable adagios – the Romance in F major by Beethoven(1770-1827), the Prelude a l’apres-midi d’un faune by Debussy(1862-1918) and the Fantasia on a theme by Thomas Tallis by Vaughan Williams(1872-1958).

Our next meeting is on Tuesday 20 February when Amanda will present the music. We have two vacancies in the group so if you would like to join us please give me a call.
