Understanding Classical Music
This is not designed to turn you into budding Beethovens or Simon Rattles but to give you a basic introduction to how music is constructed and interpreted by different performers with a concentration on orchestral music, although we be discussing other formats. At the beginning will have a talk of about 40 minutes, a break for refreshments, followed by a concert of music beginning with early music leading up to after a few months to the 20th century.
Eventually it is hoped to have full length concerts as you would hear at the concert hall. Bring your slippers and make yourself at home.
Starting in October or November (2019), the meetings will be the first Thursday of each month at 2:00pm.
