Music Appreciation (Friday) – June

At our June Meeting we listened to a programme of music selected by our members at our last meeting. Starting with the last Movement of Max Bruch’s Violin Concerto we continued with a transcription for piano of Bach’s Prelude and Fugue in A Minor followed by movements from Brahms’ 2nd Symphony.
The first half of the programme ended with 5 Bagatelles for Clarinet and small Orchestra by Gerald Finzi, the much neglected English Composer.
Our morning concluded with the 4th movement of Mahlers 5th Symphony followed by L’Apres midi d’faune by Debussy and a rousing performance of Aaron Copeland’s El Salon Mexico by Leonard Bernstein and the New York Philharmonic Orchestra.
Our next Meeting will be on Friday 29th June as usual at 19 Westfield Close.
