Music Appreciation (Tuesday) – May meeting

We meet on the third Tuesday of each month at 10am and in May, the programme of music was presented by Roger.  We began with ‘L’Estro Armonico Concerto No 10 in B Minor’ by Vivaldi (1678-1741).  This was followed by the ‘Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis’ by Vaughan Williams (1872-1958) and the ‘Hungarian Dances’ by Brahms (1833-1828).  After coffee we listened to the ’Symphony No 7 in E Major’ by Schubert (1797-1893).  Thanks Roger for a mix of glorious music, though I think we were all emotionally ‘wrung out’ after the 65 minutes of the Schubert symphony!  Our next meeting is on Tuesday, 20th June, when Peter will present a programme of music based around the theme of Summer.  Peter Ellement.
