Music Appreciation (Tuesday) – October meeting

We meet on the third Tuesday of each month at 10am.  In October, Amanda presented the programme of music.  We began the morning with the ‘Symphony No 1 (Titan)’ by Mahler (1860 – 1911).  This is a monumental work lasting an hour – it was great to have the opportunity to hear it uninterrupted.  After coffee we listened to J S Bach’s ‘Chaconne’ played by David le Page (violin).  This was followed by ‘Dum transisset Sabbatum’ by J Taverner (1495-1545) and we finished with the ‘Concerto No 3 in F Major (Autumn)’ by Vivaldi.  The next meeting is on Tuesday 21st November, when Jan will present her choice of music.  Peter Ellement.
