Music Appreciation(Tuesday) – October

We meet on the third Tuesday of each month at 5 Holdenby Close, MH, at 10am. In September Peter presented the programme of music.  We listened to music by Franz Schubert((1797-1828) and Carl Maria von Weber(1786-1826) who were both influenced  by the music of Mozart((1756-1791) and Haydn(1732-1809). We began with Schubert’s Overture ‘Rosamunde’ and this was followed by the ‘String Quartet No. 10 in E flat major’ for two violins, viola and cello. The remainder of the programme was given to two works by Weber – the ‘Symphony No. 1 in C major’ and the ‘Clarinet Concerto No. 1 in C major’. It has been a real pleasure in the last two months to have listened to four pieces of music by Weber.  We plan to hear more of his music in 2019. We have a vacancy for one new member please contact Peter if you would like to join the group,
