Music Appreciation (Friday) – March

At our February Meeting the Group listened to an Orchestrated version of five of Schubert’s Lieder-not appreciated by some of the purists in the Group who preferred the original versions for voice and piano. The first half our programme ended with Schubert’s 8th, or Unfinished Symphony in a recording made in 1978 by the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra. After a short break for coffee we listened to Variations on a Theme by Haydn and The Academic Festival Overture by Brahms, a devotee and collector of Shubert’s Music. As our March Meeting will fall on Good Friday we will not be meeting again until April 27th, as usual at 19 Westfield Close.
