Music Appreciation (Tuesday) – September meeting

We meet on the third Tuesday of each month at 10am.  In September, Graham and Joy presented the programme of music.  We began the morning with ‘Cum Sancto’ from Petite Messe Solennelle by Rossini.  We then listened to the Andante movements from Beethoven and Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphonies.  These were followed by the Adagio from Rachmaninov’s Second Symphony and the Andante from Haydn’s 4th Symphony (Surprise).  After coffee and more than the usual amount of chat we listened to Gershwin’s ‘Rhapsody in Blue’ and a short excerpt from the ‘Piano Concerto No 21’ by Mozart.  The next meeting is on Tuesday 17th October when Amanda will present her choice of music.  Peter Ellement.
